National Shooting Sports Foundation

NEWTOWN, Conn --(Ammoland.com)- With President Obama expected to announce the return of 34,000 servicemen and women from Afghanistan within a year at tonight’s State of the Union address, the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) announces that it will continue providing free firearm safety materials, including gun locking devices, to America’s returning armed services members.

NSSF is the trade association for the firearms, ammunition, hunting and shooting sports industry.

In recent years, NSSF has donated and helped place tens of thousands of free firearm safety kits from its Project ChildSafe program into the hands of returning servicemen and women to remind and encourage them to safely handle and securely store firearms in their homes when they return to civilian life.

The firearm safety kits include a gun locking device and safety brochure that discusses safe storage methods that can help prevent access by unauthorized persons, including children, at-risk individuals and persons legally prohibited from possessing a firearm.

Project ChildSafe is the nation’s largest and most comprehensive firearm safety education program, having distributed more than 35 million free gun lock safety kits in all 50 states and the U.S. Territories. The program, which once received significant federal funding, is today solely funded by the firearms industry through NSSF.
