National Shooting Sports Foundation Project ChildSafe

Responsible firearm storage is the number 1 way to help prevent firearm accidents and unauthorized access. When firearms are stored responsibly in the home, families and communities are safer. The National Shooting Sports Foundation has a new "Own It? Respect it. Secure it." Initiative to help raise the public's consciousness on the issue of firearm safety and responsibility, and to encourage firearms owners to continually embrace the importance and practice of proper handling, ownership, and storage. 36 million free firearm safety kits and gun locks have since been distributed with the number of accidents and crimes committed with firearms trending downward.

The Initiative and additional resources can be found on the Project ChildSafe website and the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) Firearm Industry Trade Association website.
