Hunt S.A.F.E. with Project ChildSafe this fall!

Hunting season is here. As you know, hunting is a tradition that is often passed down from generation to generation. Another important tradition among hunters is practicing safety in the field and when transporting and storing firearms—something Project ChildSafe reminds hunters about with its Hunt S.A.F.E. campaign so that hunts are made safe, fun and memorable.  

Here are a few ways you can help spread the Hunt S.A.F.E. message this season:

Gun Safety and Children

COLUMBUS, Miss. (WCBI) – A shocking statistic that no parent wants to hear. According to the FBI and Centers for Disease Control, more pre-schoolers are dying from guns.

Most incidents involve children finding their parent’s guns. WCBI’s Renae Skinner talks to local experts about the importance of Gun safety.

” It’s not enough to just hide the gun. You have to explain what the gun is for”
