Gun Safety

KEY GUIDELINES FOR SAFE STORAGE INCLUDE:
  • Unloaded firearms should be stored in a locked cabinet, safe, gun vault or storage case. The storage location should be inaccessible to children.
  • Gun locking devices render firearms inoperable and can be used in addition to locked storage. If firearms are disassembled, parts should be securely stored in separate locations.
  • Ammunition should be stored in a locked location separate from firearms.
  • Thoroughly double check firearms to confirm that they are unloaded when you remove them from storage. Accidents could occur if a family member borrows a gun and returns it to storage while still loaded.
A MESSAGE FOR YOUR CHILDREN
 

Children and adolescents are naturally curious about firearms and, as a result, may be tempted to "play" with a firearm they find. Make sure young people in your home are aware of and understand these safety guidelines:

  1. Don't go snooping, or allow other kids to go snooping, for guns in the house.
  2. If you find a gun in your house, or anywhere else, STOP! Do not touch it or allow anyone else to. Leave the area and be sure to immediately tell an adult.
  3. Even if a gun looks like a toy, don't touch it. Some real guns look like toy guns, so don't take a chance. Leave the area and immediately tell an adult.

Here is a great video to shows kids to teach them what to do if they see a gun - STOP - DON'T TOUCH - RUN AWAY - TELL AN ADULT   (https://goo.gl/r5NMiq)
