This week, Gov. Cooper announced the NC Secure All Firearms Effectively (NC S.A.F.E) initiative to urge North Carolinians to take action to safely store their firearms and save lives, and has proclaimed June 4-10 as NC S.A.F.E. Week of Action to raise awareness about the importance of safe gun storage.

Firearms are the leading cause of injury-related death among children and youth in North Carolina. In November 2022, NCDHHS released a white paperdescribing public health strategies to reduce firearm violence and misuse.

NC S.A.F.E. provides resources on best practices for firearm storage and safety. By utilizing cable locks, trigger locks, gun safes, lockboxes, and gun cases, North Carolinians can help make the State of North Carolina safer for everyone.
