Secure storage can help save a life.



Firearm owners have different reasons to securely store their firearms. Storing firearms securely can prevent someone from misusing them – like a curious child playing with a gun, or an intruder stealing a gun.

Secure storage can also also prevent suicide.  The decision to act on a suicidal impulse can be fast, so small changes secure firearms storage, can make a big difference.

What should you do?

Make your firearm the hardest to reach during a moment of crisis.

This program is for anyone that needs ideas for secure firearm storage and/or a place to temporarily store their firearms in a safe and secure location outside of the home. 



How the program works.
  1. Each of the facilities noted on the maps provide assistance to individuals that need support to store a firearm outside the home.
  2. Map 1 shows firearm retailers and Map 2 shows law enforcement agencies.
  3. Call the facility of your choice to let them know you want to store firearms for instructions.
  4. The facility will do a standard background check to return the firearms to you, similar to when you buy a firearm.
