"In Calcasieu Parish we have a rich tradition of gun ownership and hunting, but owing a gun carries a serious responsibility.  It is a simple thing to lock up your gun to keep it out if reach of children.  I encourage everyone to pick up their free gun lock because nothing is more important than keeping our children safe," said Sheriff Tony Mancuso.

The free locks will continue to be distributed Monday through Friday until they have all been given out. 

There is a limit of one gun lock per family.
