Free Gun Lock Kits

Provided in partnership with Project ChildSafe, each kit contains a safety curriculum and a cable-style gunlock that securely stores your firearms. The locks fit on most types of handguns, rifles and shotguns. The goal is to prevent a child or any other unauthorized person from accessing a firearm in your home.

All citizens interested are encouraged to stop at West Hennepin Public Safety to pick up their free gunlock.
