GUN LOCKS

PROJECT CHILDSAFE COMES TO ALBURTIS

 The Alburtis Police Department offers free gun lock kits to residents who own firearms.  Project ChildsafeSM, a  nationwide program designed to promote safe firearm handling and proper storage through education, has provided the gun lock kits.

This program was developed by the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) and is supported by a U.S. Department of Justice grant.  The program is designed to reduce the number of gun crimes and create safer neighborhoods.

The lock is an armored steel cable with one end permanently secured to the padlock.  The padlocks can be secured to a fixed object or can be inserted in the action of the firearm.  When used properly the cable does not allow the action of the gun to close.

As with any firearm, it is the responsibility of the gun owner to secure and store firearms in a safe manner.  These locks are designed to discourage unauthorized access to a firearm but should not be a substitute for safe gun handling and storage.  The locks will fit on many commonly owned pistols, rifles, shotguns and revolvers.

The kits can be picked up at the Alburtis Police Department.

GUN SAFETY CHILDREN'S PROGRAM
 
In 1988 the National Rifle Association began the Eddie Eagle Gun Safety Program to teach children...
 
If you see a gun:
STOP!
Don't Touch.
Leave the Area.
Tell an Adult.
 
The program consists of a 7 minute video, which is available to borrow through the Alburtis Police Department or via youtube.com (Eddie Eagle Program).
 
The Eddie Eagle Program has no agenda other than accident prevention - ensuring that children stay safe should they encounter a gun.  The program never mentions the NRA.  Nor does it encourage children to buy guns or to become NRA members.
