The Violence and Injury Prevention Program

Protecting Our Future
Gun safety lock

If a gun is in the house, always keep it unloaded and locked. It should be out of reach and sight of children. 
Safety devices, including gun locks, lockboxes, and gun safes should be used for every gun in the house. 
Storage keys and lock combinations should be hidden from children. 
Before visiting, friends and family, ask if they have guns in their homes. If so, make sure they keep their guns unloaded and locked as well.

Never leave children unsupervised in a home with a gun.
