Project ChildSafe is a nationwide program whose purpose is to promote safe handling and storage practices among all firearm owners through the distribution of key safety education messages and free gun locking devices. The Camp Hill Borough Police Department is offering this program, which is sponsored by a U.S. Department of Justice grant and the National Shooting Sports Foundation, the trade association of the firearms industry.
The gun locking device is a cable-style gun lock that meets the California AB106 threshold. Cable locks require that many types of firearms be unloaded before the cable lock is installed, thus providing an extra level of safety.
Project Safe Neighborhoods http://www.psn.gov is a federal initiative that works to reduce gun violence and crimes at the local level. Project ChildSafe complements that program's effort by encouraging safe handling and proper storage of firearms in the home.
