The Four Rules of Firearm Safety

Remember to observe the four rules of firearm safety:

  1. Always assume that the gun is loaded.
  2. Never let the muzzle cover anything you are not willing to destroy.
  3. Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on the target.
  4. Be sure of your target and what is beyond it.

At the range

  1. Follow the rules of your firing range.
  2. Remember to wear eye and ear safety protection.

Celebratory gunfire

Do not fire your guns into the air during celebrations. Stray bullets can kill or injure.

In public

  1. Gun owners with a Permit to Carry must keep their firearm concealed.
  2. Do not brandish your firearm. It is illegal and tactically unwise.

Practice peaceful and responsible firearms ownership.
