MIDDLEFIELD, Ohio -- Gun owners are urged to re-focus their efforts in keeping firearms safe, secure.
The Sandy Hook Elementary tragedy has touched everyone, but none more than firearm owners.
"We all take ownership of what happened there," says Ralph Spidalieri, owner of Great Lakes Outdoor Supply.
His three locations of full-service outdoor stores sell firearms.
"Owning a firearm is a great responsibility, and the most important thing is staying safe," he said.
In this week's "Outdoors with Big Daddy," WKYC photojournalist Carl Bachtel shows several different ways to secure forearms, rendering them safe and secure.
If you're interested in getting one of the free cable locks featured in the story, you can contact the folks at Great Lakes Outdoor Supply and ask for a "CHILDSAFE" cable lock.
Many of the area's police and sheriff's departments offer firearm safety information as well.
