Project Childsafe is offering free gun locks

Project ChildSafe® Comes To Hartford: Firearm Safety Kits To Be Distributed Locally
The Hartford Police Department will provide a limited number of free firearm safety
kits to local residents through a partnership with Project ChildSafe, the nationwide
firearms safety education program. The safety kits, which include a gun lock, will be distributed
on November 2nd, 2010, at the Hartford Police Department.
Project ChildSafe, a program developed by the National Shooting Sports Foundation
(NSSF), has distributed more than 35 million firearm safety kits throughout the country
since 2003. The program is funded by a U.S. Department of Justice grant, with additional
funding provided by the firearms industry.
“Some kits contain
a safety curriculum and a cable-style gun lock, and we also have just the locks. The locks fit on most types of
handguns, rifles and shotguns. The goal is to prevent a child or any other unauthorized
person from accessing a firearm in your home.”
By partnering with Project ChildSafe, Hartford Police Department is participating in a national
effort to promote firearms safety education to all gun owners. Project ChildSafe will distribute
gun lock safety kits to all 50 states and the five U.S. territories.
“Project ChildSafe is an important step forward
in helping ensure that all firearm owners fully understand their responsibilities with
respect to the safe handling and storage of firearms.”
