NSSF’s Inaugural Gun Storage Check Week is June 1st – June 7th

MAY 16, 2024


‘Make Sure It’s SecureTM’ is the campaign’s message to prevent unwanted access to firearms

Gun Storage Check Week - Make Sure its SecureWASHINGTON, D.C. — NSSF®, The Firearm Industry Trade Association, will launch the inaugural Gun Storage Check Week on June 1-7 to remind firearm owners to review their storage practices with the goal of preventing unwanted access to their guns.

“Securely storing guns when they’re not in use can save lives. It’s really that simple,” said Joe Bartozzi, President and CEO of NSSF. “No one wants their gun in the hands of an unsupervised child, a person in crisis, someone who does not understand how to safely operate firearms, or a thief. If something bad happens because your gun isn’t stored securely, you’ll regret it, probably forever.”

Bartozzi said that Gun Storage Check Week is a time for firearm owners to make sure their guns are securely stored when not in use. The goal is to help prevent firearm accidents, especially those involving children, suicides and thefts. “Hiding a gun on top of a refrigerator or a closet shelf or in some other location is not a substitute for secure, locked storage,” Bartozzi emphasized.

Secure Storage and Suicide Prevention

Each year more than half of all firearm-related fatalities are suicide deaths, and among veterans the rate tops 72 percent. “Suicide is preventable,” said Bartozzi. “Gun owners and their families can save lives by becoming more open to discussing factors that contribute to suicide risk and by preventing access to firearms when someone is at risk. Supporting someone who is struggling and being respectful of the right to own firearms can go together.”

When a person in crisis cannot access a firearm, a vital pause occurs that allows time for the period of acute risk to pass or for intervention to take place, and that pause can save a life. When circumstances warrant it, temporary offsite storage can be a solution, but remember to follow applicable firearm transfer laws.

Gun Storage Check Week’s safety resources highlight many options to store firearms securely so that guns are off limits to unauthorized persons. Secure gun storage devices include:

  • cable locks—often available free of charge, including through NSSF’s Project ChildSafe® program
  • lock boxes—a storage solution for guns kept for home security and in vehicles
  • lockable gun cases—for security and portability
  • full-size gun cabinets and safes—for owners with multiple firearms to protect, including against fire and theft.

The GunStorageCheck.org website provides resources to help gun owners decide which locked storage device can best meet their needs.

For those who own firearms for home and personal security and are concerned with readiness, lock boxes are a trusted storage solution that are available in a range of models using keys, access codes or biometrics. Free cable gun locks are available in thousands of communities across the country through NSSF’s Project ChildSafe program in partnership with law enforcement agencies.

“Periodically, all gun owners should review their firearm storage practices because people’s lives change—a child grows older and becomes more curious, a teenager or adult happens to be going through a rough patch in life,” said Bartozzi. “These and other situations might require a change in storage habits or devices.

“Make Gun Storage Check Week the time you check the box on safety in your home by making sure firearms are secured from unwanted access,” said Bartozzi.
