Wisconsin Sheriff Hands Out Gun Safety Kits Submitted: 01/24/2013
Grant County - The Grant County Sheriff in South Eastern Wisconsin is giving out 500 free firearm safety kits. Sheriff Nate Dreckman says the goal is to keep children- or anyone else who's not supposed to handle guns- out of harm's way. The program is part of a national effort called Project ChildSafe. It was developed by the National Shooting Sports Foundation. Each kit they give away includes a gun lock. Since 2003 they've distributed more than 35 million firearm safety kits throughout the country.
