NSSF's Project ChildSafe



“The NSSF joins Bearing Arms in denouncing domestic violence and also in reminding those who choose to own a firearm for protection that they must take precautions to be sure that unauthorized persons, particularly children and at-risk individuals, cannot get their hands on a loaded firearm. Our Project ChildSafe program provides firearm safety resources that can help you find the secure storage device that suits your home circumstances, and we offer a video to guide you in having a conversation with your children about gun safety.”

-Steve Sanetti, NSSF President and CEO

Project ChildSafe is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt, nonprofit charitable organization committed to promoting firearms safety among firearms owners through the distribution of safety education messages and free firearm Safety Kits. The kits include a cable-style gun-locking device and a brochure (also available in Spanish) that discusses safe handling and secure storage guidelines to help deter access by unauthorized individuals.

Project ChildSafe is a real solution to making our communities safer. More than 15,000 law enforcement agencies have partnered with the program to distribute more than 36 million firearms safety kits to gun owners in all 50 states and the five U.S. territories. Through vital partnerships with elected officials, community leaders, state agencies, businesses, the firearms industry and other stakeholders, Project ChildSafe has helped raise awareness about the safe and responsible ownership of firearms and the importance of securely storing firearms to help reduce accidents and access by unauthorized individuals.
