Cabela’s Outdoor Fund $50,000 Grant Will Provide Free Project Childsafe Gun Locks to State Agencies

Thanks to a generous $50,000 grant from the Cabela’s Outdoor Fund, the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) will provide its Project ChildSafe gun locks and firearm safety education materials to state departments of natural resources to promote secure storage of firearms to students in hunter education classes and other venues.

This is the second grant provided by Cabela’s Outdoor Fund to the Project ChildSafe Foundation, the 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that supports NSSF’s firearms safety efforts, most notably those of the Project ChildSafe program. “NSSF is extremely grateful for this Cabela’s Outdoor Fund grant that allows Project ChildSafe to continue providing gun locks and firearm safety education materials to state agencies,” said Bill Brassard, NSSF Senior Director, Communications, who oversees NSSF firearm safety initiatives. “Thanks to Project ChildSafe and other genuine firearm safety programs, fatal firearms accidents have declined to historic low levels.”

Project ChildSafe firearm safety kits include a gun lock and a firearms safety brochure that discusses safe handling and secure storage procedures, and how to keep guns from falling into the wrong hands.

Shipments of the firearm safety kits will begin later this year, with the kits accompanied by supporting materials such as NSSF’s Safe Storage Options infographic, a firearm safety DVD, and NSSF’s new suicide prevention brochure.

NSSF looks forward to working with state agencies again on this important firearm safety initiative designed to help prevent accidents, theft and misuse of firearms. For questions or more information about this program, contact Bill Brassard at bbrassard@nssf.org.
