Project ChildSafe Fact Sheet

Project ChildSafe is a nationwide educational program that promotes the safe storage of rearms in the home. The program raises awareness about firearm safety by distributing gun locks and educational material to gun owners.

For years, Project ChildSafe was a component of "Project Safe Neighborhoods," a federal gun violence-prevention initiative, and was supported by grants from the U.S. Department of Justice with additional funding from the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF). In 2015, NSSF was awarded a $2.4 million grant by the U.S. Department of Justice. The funds from this cooperative agreement will go toward reaching more people about the importance of rearm safety, as well as providing safety kits, including a gun lock, in Project ChildSafe Communities throughout the country, to encourage responsible rearm storage and help reduce rearm accidents, theft and misuse.

ABOUT PROJECT CHILDSAFE

  • The goal of Project ChildSafe is to help gun owners take proper steps to securely store their rearms when not in use in order to keep rearms out of the wrong hands.
  • Project ChildSafe provides responsible gun owners with the tools and information they need to securely store their guns away from unauthorized persons, including children, at-risk individuals and criminals.
  • Project ChildSafe has partnered with 15,000 law enforcement agencies in communities across the country.
  • Project ChildSafe has the support of more than 1,200 industry organizations, and works cooperatively with state sh and wildlife agencies across the U.S. to promote safe rearm handling and storage.
  • Since 2003, 37 million rearm safety kits (including a cable-style gun locking device, lock-installment instructions and a safety booklet) have been distributed free of charge to gun owners through partnerships with law enforcement in all 50 states and ve U.S. territories.
  • Every day, NSSF receives 5-10 new requests for hundreds of rearm safety kits from law enforcement agencies.
  • Fatal rearms accidents in all age groups dropped by 31 percent between 2003 and 2013, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. They now constitute less than half of one percent of all fatal accidents in the U.S.

Gun owners who wish to receive a free safety kit should contact a participating law enforcement agency in their area.
