Incidents Highlight Need For Gun Safety Conversations

Following two separate incidents involving children and guns, the Craig Police Department is asking all parents to discuss gun safety with their kids. A small child found a handgun buried in a snow bank earlier this week. Fortunately, the child did not touch the gun and alerted their parent to its presence. The gun was recovered by Craig Police. The other incident occurred when Craig Police contacted a juvenile who was in possession of a BB gun which looked remarkably similar to a functional hand gun. The BB gun was confiscated by CPD. These two incidents demonstrate the importance of discussing gun safety with your children, as they could have ended poorly, under different circumstances. Additional information on gun safety is available below. Information provided by the Craig Police Department, click to enlarge.
