Take a MOMent is a firearms safety campaign launched by world shooting champion, Smith & Wesson team captain and mother of two Julie Golob.

“No matter what side of the gun control argument you are on, learning about gun safety and having the conversation with our kids about it just makes sense,” Golob says. “With Take a MOMent I am hoping to encourage mom’s who have guns in their home to talk to their children because I believe that firearm safety awareness is a proactive and effective way to help reduce gun violence.”

“Every gun owner knows that owning a firearm is a great responsibility, even more so when you have children. Knowing and understanding the basic rules of firearm safety and securing firearms is critical for all gun owners. Equally important is talking to children about guns and that’s where Take a MOMent comes in,” Golob told me about the project. “Where some are using Mother’s Day to push a gun control agenda in Washington, Take a MOMent stresses the importance of actually talking to kids about firearms. Small children need to know that firearms are not toys, they should not touch them and if they find one they should immediately go tell an adult. Kids who are learning to shoot and hunt need to know and understand the firearm safety rules just like adults.”

During the 2014 NRA Annual Meetings in Indianapolis last month, Golob was proudly featured in a campaign against former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s new gun control efforts.
