(Redirected from Guns)

Firearms is the term that educated owners use in referring to guns, such as handguns, rifles and shotguns.

UC Davis and other public schools and facilities have strict regulations about possession of firearms, so please remove any guns from yer truck rack before coming to campus. Some other Universities offer storage options with their campus police departments for students living on campus, but UC Davis does not.

In an attempt to encourage firearm safety, the Davis Police Department and other local law enforcement agencies periodically distribute free gunlocks as part of [WWW]Project Childsafe so we can avoid accidental shootings — when available, locks are in the lobby behind the forms shelf.

To learn about specific laws concerning gun ownership in California, please educate yourself on the [WWW]California Department of Justice website.

Gun Safety

  1. All guns are always loaded. Even if they are not, treat them as if they are.

  2. Never let the muzzle cover anything you are not willing to destroy. (For those who insist that this particular gun is unloaded, see Rule 1.)

  3. Keep your finger off the trigger till your sights are on the target. This is the Golden Rule. Its violation is directly responsible for about 60 percent of inadvertent discharges.

  4. Identify your target, and what is behind it. Never shoot at anything that you have not positively identified.

And for the children "If you see a gun, stop, don't touch it, go tell an adult." (the slogan of the NRA's Eddie Eagle campaign)
