The National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) today announced Eddie Rimanelli has been recognized as a “SAFE Summer Local Champion” for his efforts to promote firearms safety in his region. Rimanelli is the CEO of Brazen Sports, a Detroit-based watch company inspired by the passion of shooting sports enthusiasts.

 

The award is part of NSSF’s Project ChildSafe SAFE Summer campaign that recognizes people who are making a positive impact in their communities by supporting responsible firearms ownership. The campaign emphasizes the importance of responsible firearms storage, particularly in the summer when children are home from school and more likely to be unattended. It is also a reminder that proper firearms storage is the best way to help prevent firearms accidents, theft, and misuse.

 

“Proper firearms storage, such as storage in a gun safe or utilization of a gun lock, can be the best defense to the unwanted consequences of accidents,” says Rimanelli. “Simply stated by NSSF and Project ChildSafe: if we choose to own it, we should respect it and, therefore, it is critical to secure it when not under our direct control.”

 

"SAFE" serves as an acronym to remind firearm owners to take proper storage precautions and educate others on how to stay safe as well. The effort is focused on providing resources to help gun owners take actions and share information that will help keep their families and communities safer.

 

“We’re very grateful for Eddie Rimanelli’s efforts to raise awareness of safe firearms storage,” adds Steve Sanetti, NSSF president and CEO. “He demonstrates how the firearms owning community is committed to firearms safety, and his work plays a vital role in helping reduce firearms accidents.”
