Gun safety

MOSES LAKE - Free lock boxes and trigger locks will be available at safe firearm storage giveaway events on Saturday at two locations in Moses Lake.

The giveaways are from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Sportsman’s Warehouse at 1020 N. Stratford Rd., and Tri-State Outfitters at 1224 S. Pioneer Way.

Participants can learn about the importance of safe firearm storage, especially for homes with children and teens, and receive hands-on training on how to use a lock box and trigger lock.

Supplies are limited and available first come, first served. One free lock box or trigger lock will be provided per person, with a maximum of two items per household. Recipients must be 18 or older.

More than 600 people attended last year’s event, with 553 lock boxes, 40 trigger locks and more than 100 cable locks provided.
