On Saturday, I confronted a Moms Demand Action volunteer/staff member at the “Pride in the Park” event in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho.
The person manning the gun control group’s booth asked me if I was a gun owner. I replied, “Yes,” and he offered me a cable lock for my firearms.
When I looked down at the cable lock, I noticed something interesting: the branding belonged the National Shooting Sports Foundation’s Project ChildSafe.
Project ChildSafe, in my opinion, is one of the BEST programs the firearms industry has and it doesn’t receive the credit it deserves.
The gun industry has come together and spent more than $70 million dollars on this program that provides free cable locks to anyone that wants or need one for safe firearm storage. Project ChildSafe partners with law enforcement agencies throughout the country to get these cable locks into the hands of responsible gun owners. Through their contributions, Project ChildSafe has distributed more than 37 million free cable locks throughout all 50 states and five territories.
When the Moms Demand Action volunteer handed me the Project ChildSafe lock, I had to say something. These are the gun control groups that ridicule the firearms industry for “doing nothing” to stop “gun violence,” yet the firearms industry is leading the way on true gun safety.
