Gun Safety for Children & Adults
Dual Defense Firearms is proud to be a part of Project ChildSafe, a national nonprofit organization committed to promoting firearms safety among gun owners through the distribution of safety education messages and free firearm safety kits. Project ChildSafe is a strong believer in education about gun safety and talking to children about how to handle firearms with care and respect.
Educate Children About Gun Safety
We encourage all our customers, as well as gun owners in Wichita and across our nation, to handle firearms with care and respect. The education about gun safety should not stop with adults, but should also be shared with children through open and honest communication. Children are very curious about guns, whether they ask about firearms or not.
Dual Defense Firearms encourages you to visit the Project ChildSafe website where you will find videos and talking points about the best way to approach the topic of gun safety with kids of all ages. Your approach to the discussion should be appropriate and suit the age of each of the children you're talking with. Children as young as 3 should be taught simple rules about guns and what to do if they see a gun. These simple rules, while important, are not the same level of conversation you will have with a 10 year old.
Safely Store All Firearms
When you are finished using your firearms, it is important to store them safely and securely, unloaded and out of the reach of children. As part of Project ChildSafe, you can find Safety Kits in Wichita. To obtain a free Safety Kit in Wichita, see the Law Enforcement Partners in Kansas who participate in Project ChildSafe.

Project ChildSafe encourages parents and guardians to take the Project ChildSafe Child's Pledge, with their children, after talking about handling firearms in a safe way. The pledge is a promise that children and parents can make, together, that will keep everyone safe when guns are around. Print out the pledge, sign it with your child and place it in a prominent space where you and your child will see it every day. It's this type of constant reminder that helps educate children and encourage them to play it smart around firearms.
