Safe Storage in the Home

Better known as Ethan’s Law, HB 7218 would require that a gun, loaded or unloaded, be properly stored so that individuals under the age of 18 cannot access the firearm. The bill was prompted by the tragic death of 15 year-old Guilford resident, Ethan Song. While at a friend’s house, Ethan died after being shot with an improperly stored gun and due to a loophole, the owner of the gun could not be prosecuted.
