Pause to Protect - A New Way for Firearm Businesses to Prevent Firearm Injury or Death

Pause to Protect is designed for firearm businesses that want to be a leader in their community’s efforts to prevent firearm-involved injuries and deaths through customer education and access to resources like locking devices and on-site storage. 

Resources available via the online hub include:

  • A national map of locations, including firearm businesses and law enforcement agencies, willing to consider community requests for temporary, voluntary firearm storage – created in partnership with Pierce’s Pledge.
  • Examples of tested operating procedures for businesses interested in offering temporary on-site storage to customers.
  • Business and insurance considerations for businesses interested in facilitating the distribution of storage devices.
  • Guidance for business operators and staff on how to talk to customers about safe storage. 

Explore these resources and more at Pause to Protect.

Watch the webinar recording introducing the program.
