June is National Safety Month and Glock‘s annual “Follow the Four” safety pledge campaign is now fully underway. The campaign encourages each firearm user to follow the four basic rules of gun ownership:
Rule #1 Treat all firearms as if they are loaded.
Rule #2 Never point a gun at anything you are not willing to destroy.
Rule #3 Keep your finger off the trigger until you’re ready to fire.
Rule #4 Always be sure of your target and what is beyond it.
As of Monday, more than 53,000 had taken the pledge at the campaign’s website. Those who sign up get a chance to win daily swag such as stickers, badges, and mugs while one grand prize winner will grab a trip to Glock’s U.S. Headquarters.
“We believe that the first and most important step to being a responsible gun owner is knowing how to handle and store your firearm safely,” says Glock Vice President Josh Dorsey. “And as a firearms manufacturer and a leader in the industry, it is Glock’s first and foremost responsibility to teach and promote firearms safety.”
