More than 40 per cent of American households with children have guns, and more than half of those either keep the gun loaded or do not lock it away, a survey by the Centre to Prevent Handgun Violence found.


But 73 per cent of respondents thought it unlikely their children would find or handle a gun without their permission, the survey showed.
