Firearm Safety Resources

Legal firearm ownership is protected by both the US and Kansas Constitutions. But that right also comes with some very real and serious responsibilities so we’re providing information on firearm safety to help along the way.

While people own firearms for many legitimate, legal reasons, they are also a tool that can used improperly. Many Kansans own firearms to protect themselves and their families. But it’s essential that we remember keeping our families safe doesn’t end with bringing firearms into our homes. Firearms should not be accessible to unauthorized individuals, and should never be left where they can be picked up by a child, stolen by criminals, or accessible by an at-risk person.

Here at the Kansas State Rifle Association, we believe in responsible firearm ownership and we make firearm safety resources available to help anyone looking for more information. Whether you’re thinking about buying your first gun, or your family has owned guns for generations, we hope you’ll use and share these tools to keep everyone safer!
