WOWT 6 News is teaming up with Cabela's to promote gun safety.
We will be giving away 1,000 gun locks at Cabela's in La Vista on Wednesday from 4-6:30 p.m. La Vista Police Officer Jamie Brown and Cabela's staff will be on hand to speak with anyone interested in learning more about gun safety.
The gun locks will be distributed first come, first serve. Recipients must be at least 21 years of age and must sign a waiver form. Only one per family.
Unintentional shootings amount for nearly 10 percent of all gun deaths in the U.S. each year. Studies show accidental gunfire kills about 25 children a year under the age of 4.
