What initially started out as an individual pledge by gun owners to be more responsible and aware of their handling of firearms has now transcended into a movement. Glock‘s #FollowTheFour firearms safety campaign is a responsible push for gun owners to acknowledge the four pillars of gun safety.

  1. “It’s Loaded” – Treat All Firearms as if They are Loaded
  2. No Pointing – Never Point the Muzzle at Anything You are NOT Willing to Destroy
  3. Finger Off Trigger – Keep your Finger Off the Trigger until Your Sights are on the Target & You are Ready to Fire
  4. Be Aware – Be Sure of Your Target & What’s Beyond It

To further help spread the word, Glock provides a complimentary Digital Safety Kit that can be downloaded from their #FollowTheFour website. This makes it easier for firearm retailers to share these principles of firearm safety to their customers, both new and old. From the consumer’s standpoint, they can proudly display their following of Glock; furthermore, their personal testament to firearm safety through branding of their personal social media.

You can update your personal Facebook profile picture with a #FollowTheFour wrapper. You can tweet out a specialized message sharing the movement on your Twitter. You can also see how everybody else is joining in on the movement by following the trending hashtag on different social media platforms.

Whether it is through pictures, tweets, snaps, re-posts or re-shares of all of the above, you too can play a bigger role in firearm safety.

Join the movement for responsible gun ownership…Four Our Freedom… Four Our Country…Four Our Safety… or however you feel spreading the awareness of firearm safety embodies you.

    Not trying to reinvent the wheel here, but.....if you apply #1 shouldn't that cover #2 & #3? A loaded weapon shouldn't be pointed at anyone/thing and finger off the trigger, yes?

    "Two rules of gun safety" isn't as catchy, I guess.

      @Hardwood83 I suspect some wouldn’t make that connection. It came out a while back that some police who’d been using revolvers weren’t following rule #3, and people muzzle each other all the time at gun shows etc.

    I can't believe no one is giving credit to Jeff Cooper, who formulated these rules decades ago.
