Project Child Safe
Pick a gunlock up at our department today, FREE!
Leaving an unattended, loaded firearm in a home with children is not safe or smart.
A loaded gun that is not under the direct control of its owner is DANGEROUS. If you think you can hide a gun from children, THINK AGAIN.
Guns are like birthday presents no matter how hard you try to hide them, kids will find them.
Project ChildSafe was developed by the National Shooting Sports Foundation and funded by a grant from the U.S. Department of Justice to provide comprehensive firearm storage and safe handling education. Project ChildSafe distributes FREE cable-style gun locks so gun owners can securely store their firearms.
Since 2003, the nationwide distribution of safety kits that includes a cable-style gun locking device and safety education materials, has reminded gun owners to properly store firearms in the home in order to prevent a loaded firearm from falling into the hands of a child, thereby preventing tragic accidents.
Project ChildSafe partners with governors, lieutenant governors, U.S. Attorneys, mayors and local law enforcement agencies. The program continues through 2006 to distribute millions more free safety kits at major public events such as state fairs, sportsmen's festivals and community safety days.
More than 35 million Project ChildSafe safety kits will have been distributed to gun owners by the end of 2006.
