Project ChildSafe is a nationwide program committed to raising awareness about the safe and responsible ownership of firearms — and the importance of securely storing firearms when not in use to help prevent access by unauthorized individuals. Since 1999, the National Shooting Sports Foundation, through Project ChildSafe, has distributed more than 37 million free firearm safety kits (which include a cable-style gun lock) to gun owners in all 50 states and the five U.S. Territories through partnerships with more than 15,000 local law enforcement agencies.
