About Project ChildSafe®

Project ChildSafe is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt charity. Project ChildSafe is also a program committed to promoting firearms safety among all firearms owners through the distribution of safety education messages and free firearm Safety Kits. The kits include a cable-style gun-locking device and a brochure (also available in Spanish) that discusses safe handling and storage to help deter access by unauthorized individuals, including at-risk persons.

Project ChildSafe is a real solution to making our communities safer. Through vital partnerships with law enforcement, elected officials, community leaders, state agencies, businesses, the firearms industry and other stakeholders, Project ChildSafe has distributed more than 36 million firearms safety kits to gun owners in all 50 states and five U.S. territories, and has helped raise awareness about the safe and responsible ownership of firearms and the importance of securely storing firearms to reduce access by unauthorized individuals.
