NSSF Distributes Gun Safety Kits with Locks

Thus far in 2013, the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) has distributed 31,000 firearm safety kits through Project ChildSafe. Through this program, NSSF helps prevent unauthorized access to firearms when they aren’t in use. The NSSF launched Project ChildSafe in 2003 to educate gun owners on their responsibility to keep their guns out of the wrong hands, and provide the tools to help them do so.

Through partnerships with law enforcement the NSSF have distributed more than 36 million free firearm safety kits to gun owners throughout the United States. Notably, between 2000 and 2010, fatal firearm accidents dropped 22 percent. Firearms accidents are now less than 1 percent of all fatal accidents in the United States.

Message from Steve Sanetti, NSSF President
This year NSSF has committed $1 million to provide free gun safety kits, including a lock, in partnership with law enforcement agencies across the country, to gun owners, and educate gun owners about responsible firearm handling and storage. Success with this campaign relies on the participation of responsible firearm owners at the local level.

It only takes a few seconds for an accident to happen, and it takes just as few seconds to prevent one. Please join us in this important work.
