If you need some Life Insurance help, let us know.

I am sure many of us know the teachings of Dave Ramsey. He is a financial guru that seems to know his stuff. Ideally, Dave wants you to live a credit free (cash) life, and only invest in products and systems that will capitalize the investment. Sounds pretty smart! In fact, I personally have taken a few of his pieces of advice and they have worked for me.

I came across an article by Dave just yesterday, and although I can not argue with all the point he makes, there is one that I am very much against. One of Dave Ramsey’s principles is not buying life insurance for your kids. When I read this I had the urge to smack Dave upside the head.

Gun Safety

Posted: October 21, 2011 in Tips, Tricks, To keep you on your toes!

You can read more about this topic on our on-site blog, but here are a few gun realted facts, myths, and tips.

According to the Research Institute at Nationwide Children’s Hospital, approximately 200 million guns are owned in America, and this number is growing daily. Every year, nearly 1,500 children die from guns and many many more are seriously injured.

Some facts that you may find interesting (or disturbing):

  • More Americans have guns than dogs.
  • 1 in 3 families with children have at least one gun in the house. That’s more than 22 million children living with guns.
  • Less than half of those gun owners with children leave the gun unloaded and locked.
  • Most victims of unintentional shootings are boys. They are usually shot by a brother.
  • It is split 50/50, shooting deaths occurring in the home versus in the home of a friend.

Myths about Guns:

  • Most parents believe their children do not know where they are hidden.
  • Many parents believe their children are not strong enough to pull the trigger.
  • Most parents believe their child could tell the difference between a toy gun and the real thing.

Gun Safety Tips:

  • Keeps guns unloaded and locked down. If you feel the need to keep your firearm loaded, keep it locked in a safe, NEVER tell your children the combination.
  • Guns should never be left within reach of a child, loaded or unloaded.
  • Keep ammunition and guns locked in separate locations, never together!
  • Never leave a child unsupervised with a weapon of ANY type.Although the below image has some humor involved,  lets be sure we are being responsible, and safe with any weapon we may have around the house!
