NORFOLK, Va. – March 18, 2015 – BLACKHAWK!® announces its support of the Project ChildSafe (PCS), a program initiated by the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) to educate the public about firearm safety. The program provides firearm safety kits through local law enforcement agencies. The kits include educational information and gun locks for securing firearms. During the past decade, the program has partnered with 15,000 law enforcement agencies to distribute 36 million free firearm safety kits.
In an effort to help raise awareness of firearm safety, BLACKHAWK! produced a public service announcement (PSA) featuring professional shooter Todd Jarrett. To view the PSA with Jarrett, visit YouTube.
BLACKHAWK! encourages firearm owners to sign the PCS pledge to respect and secure all firearms when not in use. To get a safety kit, visit ProjectChildSafe.org.
