Suffield, CT -(Ammoland.com)- Savage Arms announces its support of the Project ChildSafe (PCS) initiative championed by the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF).

The program provides free gun locks and safety education brochures to educate families and communities about responsible firearm and ammunition handling and storage. Kits are distributed by law enforcement agencies around the country.

Beginning this month, all new Savage and Stevens firearms will include a PCS lock, which prevents unauthorized use and requires a key to remove. In addition to the PCS lock, every new firearm will include a safety education brochure to provide families and communities the information necessary to begin a conversation about safe, responsible firearm ownership. Savage and Stevens firearms will also integrate program information and tools into marketing and sales communications.

To kick off its support, Savage enlisted the help of brand ambassadors Troy, Jacob and Chase Landry, stars of the TV series “Swamp People” on HISTORY. The Landry family has recorded a public service announcement (PSA) to air on the Savage and CCI websites, various social media channels and other outlets. In the PSA, patriarch Troy Landry reminds viewers of the responsibilities of gun ownership and that absolute adherence to safe gun-handling practices should never be overlooked—even if you work with firearms on a daily basis like he does.

View the PSA below:

When you give in to things like “safe child,” you open yourself up to give in to everything else the gun grabbers consider “safe.” No, you teach your kid not to touch your gun, play with guns, and common sense. You take them hunting and teach them the right way. Locking things up only tells them you don’t trust them and is giving in to Bloomberg and all the gun grabbers. If they can blow that by you, they try another tactic. It never ends. We teach gun safety on our terms and not their coward ideas!
