Free gun locks available
While here in the UK the police occasionally issue free bike locks, it's a rather different story in the USA, where as we know, it is a constitutional right to bear arms. Now, the Willits, California, Police Department and the Book Juggler owners have partnered with the National Shooting Sports Foundation to distribute free gun locks to the Willits community.
Gun owners, 18 years of age and older, may come to the Willits Police Department and request a gun lock and information packet. The locks will be distributed on a first-come basis.
Project ChildSafe reminds gun owners to "properly store firearms in the home, practice safe firearm storage options and to make certain that firearms in the home are not casually accessible to anyone, especially a child."
Each safety kit has a cable style lock designed to fit outside the trigger guard and helpful instructions on how to use it and other gun storage tips.
