DENVER — Denver is distributing 1,200 gun locks to residents on Saturday and Sunday.

Mayor Michael Hancock’s administration is promoting the effort as a way “to help end youth violence.”

“Youth are getting access to unsecured guns, and incidents are escalating with tragic results. In one of the safest big cities in the country, that is unacceptable and we know it’s preventable,” Hancock said in a press release. “We want to empower every resident to make a difference. Grabbing a free gun lock and securing a weapon is one action we can all take right now to keep young people safe.”
