Transcript for Inside Look at 'Young Guns: A Diane Sawyer Special'
Okay, josh, thanks. Here with Diane sawyer an unsettling special on "20/20" about you had lethal combination of kids and guns and, Diane, the Numbers here are just stunning. Every hour a child hospitalized because of gunshots. Every other day, a child killed. In this country. We wanted to bring together gun owners, nongun owners, address this together as neighbors and see what we could do and, for instance, we're asking, if you teach very little kids do not touch, tell an adult but leave them alone in a room and watch them. What do they do? Don't mess with it. Within ten minutes they take the gun out and then do this. Right afterwards this young boy narrates what it is to cross the line. I'm touching. I'm pulling it. See how many times I -- I'm just kidding. His friend shows this is how you check to see if the gun is real. I'm just seeing if it's real. Only after they've had time to play they get around to those rules. Help! Help! We found a gun. Two guns. I mean three -- Two guns. Did you guys touch it when I was gone? No. No. Yes, yep, yeah. You did touch it when I was gone? We did touch it. Did you touch it? No. Yeah. No, you didn't? And I want to say, George, we worked with the police in St. Petersburg on this and also a psychologist. And, Diane, on the other side there are a lot of parents who think it helps to expose kids to these guns. Right, and every third house in your neighborhood has someone with guns in it on average in this country. We wanted to hear what they had to say about putting guns in the hands of very young kids. This is Charlie. Age 4. Hold on. I knew that he was safe, but it is actually funny because at one part of the video he looks to the side to look to me to ask for permission. But guns don't have to be bad. I mean they're good. They're fun. You can have family fun with them. There are a lot of sdepss that happen because kids aren't properly trained to use guns, so it's either, you know, education or ignorance is the way that we look at it. I'd rather be the one showing our kids, you know, the proper way to use guns. We're going to look more closely at that. Been in touch with the NRA and hope all sides can come together. You did an experiment to guess the difference between real and fake guns. Yes, it's such an interesting area. You know, there are powder pink guns out there and we know how girls love pink. You'll see what happens on that front but also go online, everybody at home and take the test yourself. See if you can tell toy from real guns and imagine what it is for a child to do too. So much information all on "20/20." Young guns, a Diane sawyer special. Eye-opening all culminate fwhg this special. Thanks, Diane. I know you're excited about this, two days till the super bowl.
