The Gallery is announcing a new safety initiative for 2016. In keeping with Nina’s mission to keep women and all Americans safe through firearm education and training, and in the light of the tragic shooting attacks we have seen increasing throughout the first part of this year, we are encouraging all shooters and gun owners to establish a safety regimen for storing firearms. Guns are a weapon–they can be a force for good or evil, and they must not be allowed to come into the wrong hands. It is also important for all community members to practice good gun storage safety no matter the political climate, to prevent accidents which can cause great harm, especially to children.
There will be free gun storage safety seminars June 30, July 17, and August 22 at the Gallery. Local law enforcement will be present to answer questions and provide advice, and we’ll be demonstrating some of the storage and safety equipment we sell to keep guns secure. Whether you’re a gun owner interested in our recommendations for lockboxes and gun safe reviews, or learning about safe storage as a concerned community member, there’s something for everyone.
Even if you already store guns in a secure location, and have a firm grasp of safety guidelines, you will still find much of the seminars interesting. We will be looking at smart gun technology, and some of the latest law enforcement techniques available to our brave local officers.
