Gun Cable Lock

Unfortunately, the Rocky Mountain MIRECC is no longer able to produce/distribute firearm safety locks. We are saddened by this, recognizing that means safety is an important piece of suicide prevention.

As an alternative, firearm locks may be requested through the VA by contacting Kim Woehr (Kimberly.Woehr@va.gov).

VA requests will be prioritized in order to best serve Veterans. Every effort will be made to fulfill non-VA requests as availability permits.

Please visit the VA Lethal Means Safety website for more information, training and resources.

Lastly, download the VA Firearm Safety Lock Brochure.

 

If you don't receive an email from us confirming your order within 2 days please email joe.huggins@va.gov!
