Information for range owners or retailers
It’s crucial that firearms owners are aware of safe storage practices and other elements of suicide prevention. To help make suicide prevention education a basic component of firearms ownership, we’ve partnered with the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF), the trade association for America's firearms industry, to help distribute materials to its national network of retailers and ranges.
By joining forces with NSSF, we are able to reach both firearm owners and sellers to inform and educate them about suicide prevention and firearms, and offer specific actions they can do to prevent suicide. Together, we are taking an unprecedented, large-scale step to reduce suicide by firearm and save as many lives as possible. Through our Project 2025 analysis and the work of this partnership, we know that this public education has the potential to save thousands of lives.
In addition to our partnership with NSSF, we have also created a special module of our Talk Saves Lives suicide prevention education program, specifically geared to suicide prevention and firearms safety.
