WINNEBAGO COUNTY (WREX) -

It's the middle of hunting season and local law enforcement and other community agencies want to remind gun owners to keep their guns safe and secured.

Safe gun storage should be a priority for every gun owner. Guns stored in the residence of the victim, a relative, or friends, were used in 90 percent of firearm suicide attempts and 72 percent of unintentional firearm deaths and injuries.
