July 28, 2014 - Local officials are raising awareness for gun safety with efforts to hand out gun locks across Erie County.

The Neighborhood Resource Organization is behind the distribution of 400 gun locks throughout the county.

According to District Attorney Jack Daneri, who is one of the steering members of the committee, says the locks were left over from the Project Childsafe.

Through that program, they had 1,000 with 400 being left over.

Daneri says the purpose of this giveaway is to promote gun safety awareness, especially for new gun owners.

Daneri says a time and place for the giveaway hasn't been determined yet.
