Remember, nearly all firearm accidents in the home can be prevented simply by making sure that guns are kept unloaded and locked up when not in use, with ammunition secured in a separate location.

As a firearm owner, you must make absolutely sure that guns in your home are stored so that they are not accessible to children or other unauthorized persons. Hiding a gun in a closet, drawer or similar location is not safe storage. Children are extremely curious and might find a gun in your home that you thought was safely hidden or inaccessible.

As with most aspects of home safety, your objective as a firearm owner is to put in place a series of simple precautions (multiple safeguards) that together help create a secure environment for firearms in the home. Each of these precautions is designed to provide an additional barrier against unauthorized use.

Unloaded firearms should be stored in a locked cabinet, safe, gun vault or storage case. Be sure to place a locked storage case in a location inaccessible to children.

Unloaded firearms can also be secured with a gun locking device that renders the firearm inoperable. A gun lock should be used as an additional safety precaution and not as a substitute for secure storage. If firearms are disassembled, parts should be securely stored in separate locations.

Always re-check firearms carefully and completely to be sure that they are “still” unloaded when
you remove them from storage. Accidents could occur if a family member has loaned or borrowed a gun and then carelessly returned it to storage while it was still loaded.
