The Granby Police Department will provide free firearm safety
kits to local residents through a partnership with Project ChildSafe, the nationwide
firearms safety education program. The safety kits, which include a gun lock, will be distributed at the Granby Police Department on a first come, first serve basis.
Project ChildSafe, a program developed by the National Shooting Sports Foundation
(NSSF), has distributed more than 35 million firearm safety kits throughout the country
since 2003. The program is funded by a U.S. Department of Justice grant, with additional
funding provided by the firearms industry.
Each kit contains a safety curriculum and a cable-style gun lock. The locks fit on most types of handguns, rifles and shotguns. The goal is to prevent a child or any other unauthorized person from accessing a firearm in your home.
By partnering with Project ChildSafe, the Granby Police Department is participating in a national effort to promote firearms safety education to all gun owners. Project ChildSafe will distribute gun lock safety kits to all 50 states and the five U.S. territories.
