NEWTOWN, Conn –-( There are those who talk about “gun safety,” often in a misappropriation of the term, and those who actually do real world gun safety programming.

At the top of the latter list is the National Shooting Sports Foundation’s Project ChildSafe. Although once funded by a federal grant, Project ChildSafe is now funded by the firearms industry and public donations.

Five airports across the country have already featured or have committed to displaying Project ChildSafe public service advertising.

As this was being written, NSSF has received word that the State of Utah has selected Project ChildSafe to provide some 30,000 of our kits per year for a three-to-four year program to groups that teach gun safety, health care providers and school districts. Project ChildSafe Works.

So in another way to reach out and inform the public, this year and next, travelers through some of our nation’s airports either have or will be seeing electronic and fixed advertising to promote the Project ChildSafe “Own It? Respect it. Secure it.” message.

That is, travelers through all airports except for Reagan National Airport serving Washington. D.C. will be seeing these public service ads.

Reagan National Airport serving Washington, D.C. has said NO to advertising promoting Gun Safety.

Own It? Respect It. Secure It.

Do it for the children. Even if it saves only one life isn’t it worth it?


Just a different page out of the same book, but…Reagan is in Washington, D.C., not CA…


I wonder if they said no because the Reagan Ntnl’ Airport is in Kali ? The gungrabbers could care less about promoting firearm safety,reducing ‘gun violence’,(its at a 25 year low but they love to say ‘gun violence’ over and over) etc. The gungrabbers ultimate end game is a total gun ban ! All firearms are illegal to own ! That will never happen but them crazy son of a bitches still press on !
