Gun Safety Tips:

  • Be sure you know how your firearm operates.
  • Always keep a gun pointed in a safe direction.
  • Never assume that a firearm is unloaded.
  • Always keep your finger off the trigger, even when handling an unloaded gun.
  • Unloaded firearms should be stored in a locked cabinet, safe, gun vault, or storage case.
  • Unloaded firearms can be secured with a gun locking device.
  • Store ammunition in a locked location separate from firearms.
  • Always re-check firearms carefully to confirm that they are unloaded when you remove them from storage. gunlock1

childrenTell Your Children:

  • Don't go looking for guns in your house or a friend's house. Don't let other kids look for guns in your house.
  • If you find a gun in your house - or anywhere else - STOP! Leave it alone. Don't touch it. Don't let anyone else touch it. Leave the area and be sure to tell an adult at once.
  • Even if a gun looks like a toy, don't touch it. Some real guns may look like toy guns, so don't take a chance. Leave the area and immediately tell an adult.

Remember...if you find a gun, don't pick it up. Just leave it alone, and go tell an adult right away!
