Free Gun Lock Distribution

As we are committed to the safety of our community, and especially our children, the Amherst Police Department will provide free gun locks to any community member without proper gun locks.  With the hunting season upon us, gun owners are reminded that Massachusetts General Law requires all firearms to be locked when not under the owner’s immediate control.  By providing the free distribution of gun locks to the community, we hope to encourage gun owners to practice safe and responsible gun ownership and storage.  Community members may come by the Amherst Police Department, at any time, to obtain a free cable-style gun lock. 

Questions regarding this program may be forwarded to Sgt. Brian Daly at 413-259-3000 or via email.
