About 133,000 free gun locks are being made available at local law enforcement agencies in Nebraska.
The locks are being made available as part of the national Protect ChildSafe program. The goal is to keep children safe from firearm accidents.
Anyone who wants a lock is encouraged to contact their local police, the county sheriff or the state patrol.
Gov. Mike Johanns says if one death or injury is prevented through the distribution of the locks it will have been worth it.
The 50 million dollar program is funded through a grant by the U.S. Department of Justice and is operated by the National Shooting Sports Foundation.
About 19 million locks have been distributed nationwide.
