BEN HILL CO., GA (WALB) - The Ben Hill County Sheriff's office is making sure families are safe by offering free gun locks.
Sheriff Bobby Mclemore says it's important for all gun owners to have locks... especially in homes where they are children.
He's offered them to the public ever since he's been sheriff... hoping to prevent tragic gun accidents.
"We be glad to provide these gun locks to anybody because that keeps us from having to work a shooting later, by some child picking this gun up and not knowing that its loaded," says Sheriff Bobby Mclemore.
Folks interested in getting gun locks can stop by the sheriff's office and pick them up.
