Education on responsible firearm safety and storage is the first step towards preventing firearm accidents in the home. With this in mind, the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) will join the Harris County Sheriff’s Office and the Harris County Constable’s Office to host a special media and public event to provide free firearm safety kits (including a gun lock and safety information) to the community.

Law enforcement representatives will demonstrate how to properly install the locks on various firearms and Project ChildSafe will discuss its new safety video for parents: “How to Talk to Your Kids about Firearm Safety.” The video, starring champion shooter, veteran and mother Julie Golob, serves as a first-of-its-kind resource to guide parents in conversations about gun safety with children and teens.
