Bullock, local law enforcement distributes free gun locks

PHILADELPHIA, Aug. 10 – State Rep. Donna Bullock, D-Phila., partnered with 22nd Police District Capt. Michael Goodson, Philadelphia Sheriff Rochelle Bilal and the Philadelphia Anti-Drug/Anti-Violence Network to distribute free gun locks Wednesday evening.

Bullock, Goodson and Bilal walked the 1600 block of North 29th Street and the surrounding blocks giving out 100 free gun locks to residents, encouraging gun owners to be responsible when storing their firearms.

“One life lost is one too many and we lose too many people to guns in this city almost daily,” Bullock said. “Whether intentional or accidental, shootings take lives and upend worlds, leaving victims with trauma and long and painful roads to recovery. It’s long past due for the state legislature to come together to pass and sign into law meaningful gun safety legislation. Our need for immediate and substantive action is why we were out Wednesday night passing out gun locks. We cannot afford to do nothing and wait while Senate Republicans sit on their hands.”
