SAGINAW COUNTY (WJRT) -
(08/27/14) - Several hundred free gun locks are available in Saginaw County.
The gun locks were made available on Wednesday at a press conference outside the Saginaw County Sheriff's Department.
U.S. Congressman Dan Kildee was on hand to announce the giveaway.
Law enforcement officials say not only do gun locks help prevent young children from being hurt, they also pose a problem for anyone attempting to steal a gun that has a lock on it.
"These gun locks would be another step not only to prevent safety for our children in the homes, but also to prevent anybody that might break into a home from having easy access to a firearm," said Al Jakubowski, of ATF.
If you would like to get one of the gun locks, call the Saginaw County Sheriff's Department.
