“I’m a pro-gun advocate and I believe in the 2nd amendment that allows us to possess and carry firearms, however, I also believe that it is our responsibility as gun owners to keep our guns locked and out of the reach of children. Nothing is more important than keeping our children safe so I encourage everyone to pick up their free gun lock.  Together we can lock up our guns and save our children,” said Sheriff Tony Mancuso.


The free locks will continue to be distributed until they have all been given out.  There is a limit of two gun locks per family.
