Fayetteville offers free gun locks

Parents in Fayetteville are getting the chance to get some added protection in their homes.

Sheriff Moose Butler is launching a campaign to distribute free gun locks. Butler's office plans to distribute more than 1,000 gun locks to families that have guns in their homes.

The campaign comes a week after a 7-year-old boy took a loaded gun to an elementary school.

Mobile command posts were set up around the county Thursday to distribute the locks.

Sheriff's deputies distributed approximately 600 locks to firearm owners in the area.

Due to weather, the Friday Feb. 5 distribution date has been rescheduled for Friday, Feb. 12.

The Mobile Command Unit will be located at the Sheriff's Office Substation, 1007 Honeycutt Road in Eureka Springs, from 8:00 a.m. until 10:00 a.m.

Later in the day, the mobile unit will relocate to the East Regional Library on Clinton Road from 2:00 p.m. until 4:00 p.m.
