GUNLOCKS FOR CHRISTMAS
Sheriff giving away free gunlocks to residents
Queen Anne’s County Sheriff Gary Hofmann is offering free gunlocks to residents for last minute Christmas gifts or stocking stuffers. “We have a limited supply of gunlocks that over the past few years we’ve given away at the various carnivals and fairs” said Hofmann. “Too often you read about a child playing with a gun which results in in an accidental shooting, when a simple lock as these can prevent it”. With the tragedy at Sandy Hook and Gun Control debate in the news, The Queen Anne’s Sheriff’s Office is reminding Maryland Law requires gun owners to keep their weapons locked and secure. To get a free gunlock just stop at the Sheriff’s Office Headquarters in Centreville.
