Securing guns within a locked box is a great way to practice gun safety.

Research tells us locking guns reduces suicides and accidental deaths, particularly among our children. Here are some of the ways we can keep guns safely locked and stored, particularly in homes with children.

Locking and unloading guns is a great step toward gun safety.

1. Keep any gun unloaded and locked in a safe, cabinet, vault, or storage case.

2. Lock the bullets away separately from any gun.

3. Hide the keys to the locked area(s).
