Free Gun Locks Available

A limited quantity of gun locks were shipped to Fleet and Family Support Centers (FFSCs) and Navy Operational Support Centers (NOSCs) in July 2017. Gun locks have been proven effective in reducing suicides during at-risk periods. A few extra moments to retrieve and unlock a firearm can interrupt the impulse for suicide and open ​the door for help. Gun locks are available free of charge to Sailors and their families, made possible by Navy Suicide Prevention Branch in partnership with the Defense Suicide Prevention Office (DSPO) and Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).
