CALCASIEU PARISH - Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office deputies are handing out free gun locks to keep kids safe.
“I’m a pro-gun advocate and I believe in the 2nd amendment that allows us to possess and carry firearms, however, I also believe that it is our responsibility as gun owners to keep our guns locked and out of the reach of children. Nothing is more important than keeping our children safe so I encourage everyone to pick up their free gun lock. Together we can lock up our guns and save our children,” said Sheriff Tony Mancuso.
The distribution began today and will continue 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at the CPSO Main Office, located at 5400 E. Broad St. in Lake Charles. The gun locks are also available at any of the Law Enforcement Centers from 8 a.m. – 4 p.m. Monday – Friday.
