If you own a firearm and need a gunlock, stop by the to pick one up for free.
The locks aren't new — they arrived at the station a while ago as part of a federal grant through Project Childsafe, a program that claims to have distributed more than 35 million gun safety kits throughout the country. But the Malvern Police still have more than a few ready for use.
Project Childsafe operates under the auspices Project Safe Neighborhood, a U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) program, in cooperation with the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF).
The locks available at the Malvern Police Department come with a pamphlet containing instructions on how to install the lock on autoloading pistols, revolvers, shotguns and rifles. The pamphlet also contains other safety tips.
