Safe Gun Storage

Safe gun storage is an issue that impacts the entire community. It plays a crucial role in preventing shootings and deaths.

Every year in the United States, 350 children under the age of 18 gain access to a firearm and unintentionally shoot themselves or someone else.

More than 700 children in America die by gun suicide each year.

The Village of Oak Park Department of Public Health and Police Department remind residents that safe storage is a simple action a gun owner can take to reduce access to guns among young people, keeping children and families in our community safe.
