FREE GUN LOCKS: Where to get one

Posted: Updated:
MINNEAPOLIS (KMSP) -

The Hennepin County sheriff's office is helping add an additional layer of safety when it comes to guns in the home.

Friday afternoon, deputies and sheriff's office staff were joined by Project Childsafe to hand out the free gun locks. Those who request locks will not be asked for names or any information.

"For those who have a firearm in their home, this lock will provide an additional safety measure for storage," said Hennepin County Sheriff Rich Stanek. "Safely securing and handling a weapon is especially important in households with children or households where children may visit, such as a grandparent's home."

The gun locks are available while supplies last at the following locations:
