Posted on 04/27/2022

The negligent handling of firearms can lead to serious injury or even death. If you have firearms in your home, remember these basic safety rules from the Lenexa Police Department:

  • Treat every firearm as if it were loaded.
  • Never point the muzzle at anything you are not willing to destroy.
  • Keep your finger off the trigger until ready to shoot.
  • When not in use, store firearms unloaded and in a secured safe, cabinet or lockbox, or use a gunlock.

Request a gunlock

The Lenexa Police Department has a limited supply of free universal gunlocks. Stop by the station anytime to pick one up. (Limit two per household).

Each year, dozens of firearms are stolen from vehicles in Lenexa. Unsecured firearms can be a target for thieves and then used to commit other serious crimes or sold illegally.
