Legal Firm Offers Free Gun Locks to CH residents
Posted on 12/02/2014

After the tragic shooting that took the life of a Brighton High student this past summer, a local charity has stepped in to help prevent future incidents by providing gun locks at no cost to citizens of Cottonwood Heights.

It is their goal to get 1,000 guns in the city secured with locks, and they’ve already handed out close to 200 of them.

Shortly after establishing the law firm of Nuttall, Brown and Coutts over 30 years ago, attorneys started a 501(c) charitable foundation known as Lawyers Endowment for Accident Prevention (L.E.A.P., for short).  LEAP’s purpose is to prevent/minimize injury and death in our local community.

These combination trigger locks are free for the asking to those who promise to use them.  Anyone who needs a lock can pick one up from the law firm’s office at 6925 South Union Park Center (approximately 1200 East), Suite 210 during business hours (next to Famous Dave’s Restaurant).  With the help of Cottonwood Heights neighbors, the firm hopes to reach the goal before the end of the year.
