Keep the kiddies safe and happy on All Hallows' Eve

Mom and son Trick or Treating at the NRA National Firearms Museum

Fairfax, Virginia - Bethany Mullen, NRA's Refuse To Be A Victim® Program Coordinator, sent up the following tips for keeping all your ghouls and gobblins safe this Halloween:

  1. Know what route your children are taking to trick or treat and impress on them how important it is for them not to diverge from this route.
  2. No shortcuts. Fields, alleys, paths through the woods; all will take a few minutes off their journey but at night, in the dark, those shortcuts hold a danger of their own.
  3. Know where they are at all times.
  4. Make sure they never to go into anyone's house. Predators might ask the child to come into their house and wait while they "go get more candy." Tell your child to tell their parents and move onto the next house.
