The U.S. Attorney's Office participated in Project Childsafe today at the Guam Premier Outlets. The office provided firearm safety kits to local residents through the program geared to educate the public about gun safety. The nationwide program has distributed more than 35 million safety kits throughout the country since 2003.
U.S. Attorney for Guam and the CNMI Lenny Rapadas says the outreach even teaches parents how to safely store their firearms and educate them about firearms handling. "The main purpose is to make sure that we keep guns out of the hands of children and that there are no accidental injuries or deaths because of that," she said.
Federal, government and private entities held their own displays today. McGruff the Crime Dog also took pictures with the kids and the U.S. Attorney's Office even handed out free gun locks at the event.
