The Lincoln County Mental Health Coalition is excited to announce that they will be partnering with local businesses and sports clubs to promote gun safety. This spring, the following locations will be providing free gun locks and education materials to the public.
•Tomahawk Furniture (Firearms and Bows)
•Lincoln County Sports Club
•Rock Falls Rod and Gun Club
•Rutt N’ Rod
These locations support gun safety and want to keep our community safe by preventing child injury and suicide deaths related to guns.
“We are grateful to be working with our local businesses to distribute gun locks in the community,” says Kristin Bath, Public Health Educator for the Lincoln County Health Department and head of the Lincoln County Mental Health Coalition. “Most gun related injuries and deaths are preventable; this program provides the community with a resource to help keep their families safe.”
Gun locks are limited. Stop by one of the partnering locations, while supplies last.
