In Today’s Tip, Gordon Graham stresses the critical importance of firearms safety at home for law enforcement professionals.

Given that many officers bring their duty weapons home or keep firearms for home defense, secure storage is a must. The potential for tragic accidents, such as an unsupervised child or curious teenager accessing a loaded gun, underscores the need for vigilance.

Gordon urges officers to ensure all firearms are securely stored, to regularly review the fundamentals of firearms safety and to educate all household members on these principles. He also recommends familiarizing oneself with both agency policies and state laws regarding firearm storage, and to research the best storage solutions, such as safes and locking devices, that fit one’s home and family needs.
