MANY PATHS TO FIREARM SAFETY
Project Childsafe is excited to announce the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) and the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) have released a new video series, “Many Paths to Firearm Safety,” to help new and potential gun owners understand their responsibilities if they decide to keep firearms in the home.
The videos are portrayals of three different gun owners and their stories of ownership, along with the steps they took to make sure they would handle and store that firearm safely when not in use.
The series reflects that more Americans – especially women – are buying guns for many different reasons, ranging from personal protection to target and sports shooting. The central message is that while there are many different reasons why someone would choose to buy a gun, the common thread among them must be a commitment to store firearms responsibly when not in use so they can’t be picked up by a child, stolen or accessed by someone who may want to harm themselves.
