Make it SAFE!

This series of videos is intended for educators, parents, the press, or anyone who is not comfortable with firearms, but may encounter one and has to take action immediately to make it safe.

NOTE: If you have any suspicion that the gun you come across was used in a crime, don’t touch it and call the police if possible.

As always, if you do not feel comfortable handling a firearm, we do not encourage you to do so. However, these videos will give you a basic understanding of how make a firearm “safe,” or unable to fire, if you are in a situation where you need to do so immediately and no other help is available.

These videos are for situations where either you know that it is someone else’s legal gun that is out of their immediate control or if there is no other option available to you.
