Tompkins County residents offered free gun locks


1/08

Ithaca (WSYR-TV) -- Ithaca officials are taking gun safety seriously after several mass tragedies in recent months.

The Ithaca Police Department and the Tompkins County Sheriff’s Department are offering free gun locks to area residents. There’s no limit on how many you can request and you won’t have to show ID.

The locks will be available Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Ithaca Police Department or the Tompkins County Sheriff’s Department.

City of Ithaca residents are asked to pick up the gun locks at the Ithaca Police Department, while all other county residents are asked to pick up the locks at the Sheriff’s Department.

Over the weekend, officials collected more than 100 guns during the county’s first gun buy back program.

Putting a proverbial parental boot up kid's backsides would do more to eliminate these tragedies than all the gun locks and gun bans in the world.

OBTW The VA even gives these locks away. Tey have ben in most PDs for years now that I can recall.You may have to ask for them. I do know the SFPD & SCSD has them or at least they use to. The only problem is if one owns several weapons then they have to deal with several different keys. I have mine SO one key fits all. Wasn't cheap but at least safe. If for nothing elese you can wrap them in fur and use them on the wife as hand cuffs.
