Newtown, CT -(AmmoLand.com)- When an Arizona mother walked into her bedroom and saw her toddler playing with her husband’s gun, it was the Project ChildSafe lock she’d put on it the day before that she credited with preventing a tragedy.
In the past year, more than 1,200 retailers, range owners, hunting groups and safety instructors have joined with NSSF to help promote our Project ChildSafe program. Project ChildSafe is the industry’s nationwide effort to help prevent firearm accidents by educating gun owners on the importance of properly storing firearms when they aren’t in use.
Together we are helping to save lives, and showing that gun owners, the firearms industry, and all those involved in the shooting sports are committed to the principles of firearm safety and responsibility. We’re taking the lead on this issue, and we would love to have you involved.
Please visit NSSF’s Project ChildSafe at Booth # 2528 during the SHOT Show to learn more, meet our team, and sign up as a Project ChildSafe supporter. There’s no cost, and as a Project ChildSafe supporting organization you can be a powerful voice to promote the safe enjoyment of the shooting sports and help prevent firearm accidents in your community.
Thanks for your attention, and we look forward to seeing you at SHOT 2016!
