Gun locks given away recalled

The Associated Press

        WESTERVILLE, Ohio — A suburban police department that recently gave away gun locks to promote gun safety is recommending that those locks stop being used and be returned to the department.

        Police in other states who recently gave away similar locks found that the locks could easily be broken open.

        “If we have even two or three gun locks out there that are defective or are potentially defective, I would rather bring those back,” said Westerville police Capt. Joe Morbitzer.

        Officials said they were worried that the locks may give some people a false sense of security.
