Michigan Gun Owners, one of our PCS SAFE Summer Local Champion groups, gave a firearms safety presentation to a group of about 15 kids and their parents at Jordan Missionary Baptist Church in Detroit, MI on August 8.

The session featured elements of their stock presentation and the “How to Talk to Your Kids About Firearm Safety” video, followed by a Q&A session and distribution of PCS brochures and other educational materials.

On Saturday, August 15, PCS Safe Summer Champion Kevin McNair partnered with the Nevada Department of Wildlife and Bass Pro Shops to host two free firearm safety seminars in Las Vegas.  

Attendees were shown our new video, How to Talk to Kids About Firearm Safety, learned tips for securing guns when they’re not in use and received free Project ChildSafe firearm safety kits that included a gun lock. Children were welcome to attend and asked to sign their very own Project ChildSafe Pledge, promising to never handle a gun without permission from an adult they know, never play with guns and always obey the rules of gun safety.

Welcome to the PCS Blog!

So many of you have stepped up to support Project ChildSafe that we decided it was time to launch a new blog to highlight the great work being done to promote firearm safety. All of us at Project ChildSafe have been overwhelmed with the support this program has received—it truly demonstrates that the firearm-owning community is committed to safety and responsibility, and this blog is one more way we can continue to push that message out.

This will also be a place to share ideas and learn about the latest Project ChildSafe events, activities, tools and materials you can use with your communities.   

We’d also love to hear from you. Email us at PCSStaff@nssf.org with your photos, stories, ideas and questions. Let’s keep working together to encourage responsible firearm storage and help prevent accidents.
