SHOT Show Fuels Nation’s Largest Firearm Safety Program
Each year, the SHOT Show is the primary funding source for the National Shooting Sports Foundation, the industry’s trade association.
Among the many programs the show helps to fund is Project ChildSafe, the nation’s largest firearm safety program.
Managed by NSSF, Project ChildSafe has distributed more than 35 million firearm safety kits free of charge to gun owners in all 50 states and in the five U.S. territories.
The program operates in cooperation with local law enforcement departments that provide the firearm safety kits to gun owners in their communities.
The success of the program can be attributed to law enforcement, elected officials, community leaders, state agencies, businesses and individuals who have worked to help raise awareness about the importance of securely storing firearms in the home.
In 2013, NSSF is planning to expand Project ChildSafe to further emphasize the necessity of proper storage of firearms in homes where young or at-risk persons reside.
