U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- NEWTOWN, Conn.— With the holiday season upon us, the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) reminds Americans to practice responsible safety measures at home, including safe and responsible firearm handling and storage.

“It’s important to remember that the holidays can be a challenging time of year for many, and that may be especially true this year—particularly for those who are unable to see loved ones due to the pandemic, or who may be feeling isolated or alone for other reasons,” said Joe Bartozzi, NSSF President and CEO. “We want to ensure families are practicing safe firearm storage habits to reduce the chance of a firearm accident this holiday season.”

Recognizing this, NSSF has launched its Project ChildSafe 2020 Holiday Safety campaign to remind Americans of the importance of firearm safety and secure storage and provide tools to help keep families safe this holiday season. This includes safe and responsible firearm handling and storage information for current and new gun owners, home safety tips, and guides on mental health and suicide prevention.

NSSF and Project ChildSafe have a variety of educational materials and resources available, including:

“Even though the holidays may be different this year, we want to encourage Americans to take the necessary steps to keep themselves and their families safe by continuing to prioritize safe firearm handling and secure storage,” said Bartozzi.

A friend of mine put a trigger lock on his 9mm and when he needed it the lock wouldn’t open. He covered the trigger guard with his non-firing hand to hide the trigger lock from the guy that had broken into his house, luckily the dude ran, took off after seeing the gun. I helped him drill the lock to get it off and he never put another one on any of his weapons.

IF that photograph is typical, and it takes FOUR hands to install that ridiculous concoction, what’ s the poor sap, at ome alone, to do when he hears the back patio door being crashed through at about zero two seventeen? He has to first find the gun. Then he has to find the key. Then, hands shaking and in the dark, he has to figure out which way is UP on the stupid key, shove it in the hole, try and twist it (the cheap chinese locks are glitchy, I’ve got a couple dozen of em) and finally get the… Read more »

Teaching the kids the safe ways around guns is best but you also have to… Read more »
