Recognize National Safety Month by Using NSSF Firearm Safety Resources
With June designated National Safety Month, now is a good time to communicate firearm safety messages to your customers and members using NSSF’s many firearm safety resources.
NSSF encourages the use of its most prominent firearm safety tools not only during June but year-round to help keep responsible firearms ownership top of mind. It’s easy to take part. Add the “Own It? Respect It. Secure It.” logo to your website and print materials, and the new video, “How to Talk to Your Kids about Gun Safety,” to your homepage or safety resources page. To amplify these safety messages, we ask you to share them on your social media outlets.
NSSF has many other firearm safety videos, such as “Introduction to Range Safety and Etiquette”; printed resources such as “Firearms Responsibility in the Home”; and the infographic “Safe Storage Options for Your Lifestyle” available at NSSF.org/safety and ProjectChildSafe.org.
By promoting one or many of these resources, you’ll be reminding firearms owners to store their guns securely when not in use and helping to keep guns out of the wrong hands.
In the past year, more than 1,100 industry companies and associated organizations have become supporters of Project ChildSafe and the “Own It? Respect It. Secure It.” campaign. Please join this effort to promote Project ChildSafe, your industry’s national firearm safety program, so we can continue, every day, to help deter firearms accidents, thefts and misuse.
