ROCKWALL, TX (Feb. 3, 2023) Last year up to 18,000 children and teens were killed or wounded by a gun in the U.S. Safely storing and locking firearms when not in use is the best way to prevent accidents. Rockwall County Library has collaborated with Project ChildSafe and Rockwall County’s Sheriff Department to help spread awareness of this crucial issue.

After his presentation, participants can choose a free Project ChildSafe kit. The kits include a cable-style gun-locking device and a brochure (available in English and Spanish) that discusses safe handling and secure storage guidelines.
