This June, take the Glock Safety Pledge to practice the four rules of firearm safety!
This annual pledge, now in its fifth installment, has drawn the support of over 50,000 people over the years. While we know that you #FollowtheFour 24/7 365, this call-to-action is about spreading awareness of the four rules of firearms safety and showing the world that when it comes to responsible gun ownership, we — the gun community — lead the charge.
To take the pledge, start by visiting the Glock website. There, you will find an interactive screen that allows you to type in your reason for joining this movement. Once you’ve typed it in, you’ll see the buttons to share on social media. It’s really easy to do.
“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,” said Glock Vice President Josh Dorsey in a press release. “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.”
Four rules of firearm safety:
- Treat all firearms as if they’re loaded;
- Never point the muzzle at anything you are not willing to destroy;
- Keep your finger off the trigger until your sights are on the target and you are ready to fire;
- Be sure of your target and what’s beyond it
