THE SUCCESS OF SAFE STORAGE PROGRAMS, BY THE NUMBERS

Original Post found at: NSSF

By Steve Sanetti

Programs promoting safe firearm storage practices work. There is no other way to explain the fact that with over 380 million firearms in the U.S. today, accidents with firearms have dropped to historical lows.

According to NSSF’s latest Industry Intelligence Report, unintentional firearms fatalities are down 60 percent over the last two decades. Among children, that figure drops by 74 percent, while the population of youth 14 years of age and under increased 4.7 percent.

A recent industry survey of gun owners found that safe storage devices are widely used, with over 80 percent reporting use of a gun safe. Nearly all of those surveyed said that firearm safety is “extremely important” to them.

What firearm secure storage method(s) do you use?

Taking Initiative

The firearms and ammunition industry understands that even with broad adoption of safe storage practices and the voluntary inclusion of a free locking device with new firearms sold since 1998, the need for constant education continues.

That’s why NSSF continues to promote best practices through initiatives such as Project ChildSafe. In addition to the key educational components of Project ChildSafe, through the program more than 37 million gun locks have been distributed – free of charge – to more than 15,000 communities in every state and U.S. territory. It’s no surprise that this program is so indisputably successful that even the Obama Administration’s Justice Department awarded the NSSF a grant to help expand the industry’s efforts.

NSSF and our members are proud to have contributed to declines in firearms accidents and remain committed to further reducing incidents of unauthorized access to firearms.

California Proposition 65

California Proposition 65 is a California state law that requires businesses to provide reasonable warning about the use of any chemicals the state has decided could cause cancer, birth defects, or other reproductive harm. The list of chemicals is approximately 900. Consumers who live outside of California are not accustomed to seeing Proposition 65 Warnings on products received from internet purchases or products purchased at local retailers.  
 
Regal Industrial Sales, Inc. has been producing firearm safety devices (cable and trigger locks), cases and bags, cleaning kits and firearm components since 1989. We have received no reported cases of our products causing harm or danger. We are unable to test against the 900+ Proposition 65 chemicals and therefore, we have placed the warning on our products to be in compliance with the California Proposition 65 regulation. You will also see the Proposition 65 warning on products purchased outside of California because our products are sold across the country at major retailers, firearm dealers and on Amazon.
