Crime Tip Tuesday: Gun safety

It's one of the big ones: gun safety. How do you keep your firearms out of little hands?

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – Gun safety is something that everyone who owns a gun or has one in their home should be conscious of.

Lockboxes are a great way to keep guns out of the hands of people who shouldn’t have them, but those boxes can also be great at holding medicine or any other small items you don’t want easily accessible. Of course, there are a number of sizes and styles of box available, from a single handgun size or a large chest.

A gun lock is another option. It locks the operation of a gun, meaning the gun won’t fire and a magazine usually can’t be inserted.

Once you’ve used your firearm, clean it, take out the ammunition, and store it away from the gun.
