Project Gunlock is a community safety initiative supported by the Village of Waynesville, Wayne Township, Mary L. Cook Public Library, Waynesville Area Chamber of Commerce, Wayne Local Schools, and endorsed by "The Waynesville Way." 

Collectively, we encourage gun owners to safely secure their firearms and to always be aware of who can access them to prevent accident, theft, and misuse. 

These organizations and three local businesses  - B&B Carryout, Waynesville Pharmacy, and Pat's Place, are providing free gun locks to secure firearms.  Additionally, School Resource Officer Shannon Mermann will be at a Spartan home football game to discuss gun safety, gun classes, and to distribute free gun locks. 

This community-wide initiative is to spread a very important message.  We ask you to pledge to keep our community's children safe and confident by always safely securing your guns.
