Kie Wagner from Glock, Inc. and R. Lee Ermey, “The Gunny”, talk about the importance of gun safety. Having a gun as part of your home defense is a right, but it is vitally important that gun safety rules are followed to the “T”. Any home with a gun must understand gun safety, responsibility and have awareness of how to handle and store a firearm. More women than ever before are taking an interest in firearms for the purpose of home or self-defense, but we are seeing an overall rise in general interest in firearms from women. On the topic of home defense, it’s essential that anyone who will be using the gun is properly trained and is familiar with gun safety standards. GLOCK recently led a very successful campaign called S.A.F.E. (Serious About Firearms Education). It included a Safety Pledge Drive established in order to encourage folks to take a Safety Pledge to demonstrate their commitment to firearm safety. GLOCK actively works year-round to promote gun safety across the United States.
Keeping Us S.A.F.E.
The brave men and women who have fought for our country fought in part to help protect the freedoms we enjoy here, including the right to bear arms.
While our military seeks to protect our country from harm’s way, people at home are concerned about their own personal safety and protecting it, both inside and outside the home.
And that’s where GLOCK steps in. GLOCK works tirelessly in promoting gun safety across the United States by educating and increasing public awareness about firearm safety.
GLOCK also believes in giving back. So when Designing Spaces wanted to give back to the family of a young wounded veteran who sacrificed for our country by helping them with some badly needed renovations in their townhouse in Summerville S.C., GLOCK was happy to participate.
As a valued partner they also brought R. Lee Ermey, famed TV actor and former military man himself, to the show as host of the series.
“Designing Spaces of Hope – Military Makeover” will chronicle the renovations of the home of wounded Purple Heart recipient Stephen Lunt, his wife Ashley and their son. While in Afghanistan, Lunt was forced to fight an insurgent in hand-to-hand combat, resulting in numerous injuries and multiple surgeries.
You‘ll have to tune in to hear Stephen’s full background story and this heart-warming and inspirational series hosted by R. Lee Ermey on Designing Spaces airing on Lifetime. Kie Wagner from GLOCK will sit down with R. Lee in the first episode to discuss safety first:
– Episode #1 – Friday, November 21, 2014 at 7:30 am (ET/PT)
– Episode #2 – Friday, November 28, 2014 at 7:30 am (ET/PT)
– Episode #3 – Friday, December 5, 2014 at 7:30 am (ET/PT) The BIG REVEAL!
In a partnership with the National Shooting Sports Foundation and Project ChildSafe, Glock launched the S.A.F.E. (Serious About Firearms Education) campaign with great success in spreading the word and sharing the resources available to firearm owners, resources that help make the ownership of a gun safer for everyone involved.
The S.A.F.E. campaign helped GLOCK establish the Four Rules of Safety:
o Treat every firearm as if it is loaded.
o Never point a firearm at anything you do not intend to shoot.
o Always be sure of your target – and what is behind or beyond it.
o Keep your finger OFF the trigger until you are on target and ready to fire the shot.
Education about the proper way to hold and use a firearm is just the beginning. GLOCK University, http://www.glock.com offers many resources to help new and experienced firearms owners alike. If you are wondering the safest way to store a gun in your home, or how best to educate children about the dangers of a firearm you can find it at GLOCK University, where professional shooters offer advice, tips and suggestions, such as the best place to go and learn how and practice shooting.
We all have the right to bear arms for our protection, but GLOCK believes that with that right comes the responsibility of learning how to be a safe gun owner. GLOCK wants you to shoot safely, and with their help, you can.
