Free Gun Locks in Milwaukee

Milwaukee is giving away gun locks, as it takes aim at the number of children either shot to death or pulling the trigger. 

"Children should not have access to loaded guns," said Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett.

Mayor Barrett announced 300 child safe gun locks will be distributed across the city starting Thursday.

Milwaukee Keenan Health Center, 3200 N. 36th St.
Northwest Health Center, 7630 W. Mill Rd.
Southside Health Center, 1639 S. 23rd St.
The locks will also be distributed by WestCare Wisconsin, Gee’s Clippers, Dep’s Hall of Fades, Men’z Lounge and MPD Districts 2, 5, and  7. 

"We would hope they're going to be people who live in the neighborhoods, because these are the neighborhoods where we see a lot of intentional and unintentional violence. but when someone comes in, we're not asking for identification," Mayor Barrett said.

The locks were given by the U.S. District Attorney's Office and Project ChildSafe.
