Gun Safety in the Home
When your children spend a night at your friend’s home would you consider asking – are their guns stored safely? Would your children tell you if they saw a gun in the open at their friend’s home?
Human Services and Safety and Chief Nelson are sponsoring a forum on gun safety in the home on Sept. 21 at the Public Safety Center from 7-9. All are invited especially your children.
If you have questions, concerns, topics you want discussed at the forum, please contact Pat
