Millions of gunlock safety kits are being handed out across the nation, including right here in the Stateline. It's part of a program called Childsafe. The goal is to educate firearms owners on safety issues as well as provide the free safety kits.
The kits will be handed out at the Rock County Sheriff's Office Monday through Friday. They'll also be handing out gunlocks Saturday November 8th from 10a.m. to 2 p.m.
The risk of firearms-related unintentional injuries or deaths can be drastically reduced when guns are secured and stored in a safe manner.
