The National Rifle Association, the Second Amendment Foundation and Forefront Suicide Prevention helped to develop the Safer Homes training. Other collaborators in the Safer Homes Coalition are firearms retailers, state agencies, law enforcement, mental health providers, health care providers and suicide prevention advocates.

Firearm safety is a proud tradition in Washington and across the United States. For many years, the American firearms-using public has embraced safe storage in order to avoid the tragedy of a young child dying or hurting another in an accidental shooting.

Today, the largest risk by far of firearm death is to boys and men who end their lives by suicide.
