Keep NC S.A.F.E.
Firearms are the leading cause of injury-related death for children and youth in North Carolina. A 2019 study estimated that up to 32% of gun-related deaths and unintentional injuries among youths could’ve been prevented with safe gun storage. Responsible gun ownership starts with proper gun storage, which helps keep our children and other community members safe.
NC S.A.F.E (Secure All Firearms Effectively) is working to raise awareness of gun accidents and the importance of proper storage. Learn more about how to safely store your gun and consider looking into out-of-home gun storage options during times such as when traveling or when children are visiting.
