Giving or Receiving A Gun For Christmas?

Rules For Responsible Ownership

Each Christmas, people of all ages and experience levels open the gift of a gun, and for some become first time gun owners. In the excitement of Christmas, sometimes the most basics of gun safety and the responsibility of safe gun ownership can be forgotten.

The first priority for any gun owner should always be safety. There are many valid reasons for owning a firearm, and it is crucial to remember that a gun is a weapon and must be handled responsibly. Most experienced gun owners know the basic rules of gun usage and ownership, but responsible gun ownership also includes taking preventative measures to ensure that dangerous situations never arise. Those measures include: keeping guns locked up between uses; keeping guns unloaded until ready to fire; using proper ammunition; and cleaning your gun regularly.
