This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Harvard chapter.

1. Figure out who to ask

Ask your relatives Ask your host parents Ask your roommate Ask the family you babysit for Ask your Airbnb host Ask your friends Ask the party host Ask your date



2. Start with other questions


3. Then ask the three-part question – Do you have a gun? Is it secured? Is it stored separate from the ammunition?


4. Share some stats

Bonus tips:

Acknowledge the awkward

Don’t be confrontational

Try asking through clubs at school
