Safe Gun Storage

Safely Storing Firearms is the Duty of Every Gun Owner

Gun safety isn’t just knowing how to handle a gun properly, it’s also about keeping it from getting into the wrong hands. Whether you keep a gun in your car, home or somewhere else, safely storing it 24/7 is a must in order to protect our children, prevent avoidable injury, and keep our weapons out of the hands of criminals. Together, we can keep our fellow Texans safe!

It’s easy to follow the 1,2,3’s of safe gun storage:

  1. Store guns unloaded and secured using a trigger lock, biometric lock, gun case, strong box, gun cabinet or gun safe.

  2. Store and lock ammunition safely.

  3. Keep others from getting access to stored firearms 24/7. That includes family, friends, children or other visitors.
