The Harris County District Attorney’s Office, along with the Houston Police Department, will be distributing free gun safes and locks on Saturday, Dec. 16, at Crime Stoppers Houston, 3001 Main St., Houston 77002, as part of an initiative to raise awareness on responsible gun ownership. The event will include presentations on the importance of safe firearm storage and a tutorial on how to use the gun safes and locks. Presentations will be held from 11 a.m. to noon and 12:15 p.m. to 1:15 p.m.
“With the holiday season in full swing, kids are home from school or visiting friends and family, and that means ensuring firearm safety is paramount,” Ogg said. “Amidst the festive season and celebratory visits, securing our firearms is crucial. We must ensure that our weapons are safely stored not just in our homes but anywhere our children may be, including cars.”
Ogg noted that locking up our firearms is a simple yet powerful step in keeping our community safe, and the Harris County District Attorney’s Office will do everything possible to raise awareness and end gun violence.

This gun safe distribution has been made possible by the generous support of the Hobby Management District.
One safe will be given out per household on a first-come, first-served basis. Please remember that the purpose of these safes is to safely store firearms away from children or those who could steal them.
Please RSVP to ensure we have enough safes and gun locks on hand. To RSVP and for more information, visit www.harriscountyda.com/safe_storage_landing_page_event.
