INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Indianapolis Public Library is teaming up with the Marion County sheriff to distribute free gun locks throughout the state’s largest city.

The library and Sheriff John Layton say the gun locks will be available upon request at the downtown Central Library and at branches in Southport, Glendale, Brightwood, Irvington Branch and West Indianapolis.

Since 2011, Layton has distributed over 5,000 free gun locks throughout Indianapolis at gun stores and at Riley Children’s Hospital.

Layton says giving away the gun locks is a step toward reducing unintentional gun injuries.
