Free gun locks for gun owners

March 31, 2006

Albany--South Georgia gun owners are getting a chance to make sure their guns are safe from children.

Project ChildSafe is a nationwide program designed to teach firearm safety and distribute free gun locks to help protect children from firearm accidents.

Project leaders say the locks are a must for all firearm owners. Anybody with firearms and children in the house, or with grandchildren.

"A lot of grandparents don't think about the fact that their grandchildren are over there all the time, and they have a gun that sits in a drawer that they have not thought of in year's" said Linda Corrow with Project Childsafe.

Project Childsafe is on a tour through Georgia, partnering with local law enforcement. They'll be at American Outdoor Adventures tonight until 7 p-m and back on Saturday and Sunday.

They'll team up with the Lee County Sheriff's Office at Wal-mart April 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 9th.
