A nationwide program to distribute free gun locks to protect children has been suspended after police discovered the devices can spring open.
The National Shooting Sports Foundation a trade group based in Newtown, distributed 400,000 cable locks through more than 600 law enforcement agencies before police in Knoxville and Chattanooga, Tenn. reported the problems last week.
Robert Delfay the group's president and chief executive said a decision on whether any of the locks will he recalled will be made after the tests.
Project HomeSafe began about a year ago, with the foundation promoting it as a way for gun owners to feel more sure that their weapons are safe from children.
The cable locks, which differ from trigger locks, are pulled through gun handles or barrels te prevent the weapon from being fired or loaded. Some of the nation's largest and most violent cities participated in the project.
Police in the Tennessee cities said they are concerned gun owners might have a false sense of security about the locks Delfay said the foundation shares the worry and recommends that all weapons be stored in safety boxes. He said the locks were never meant to be foolproof.
