Detroit, Mich. ( – IDENTILOCK®, the world’s first biometric fingerprint trigger lock for firearms, is proud to announce their support of the National Shooting Sports Foundation’s program, Project ChildSafe®, through the annual Friends and Family campaign. An IDENTILOCK has been chosen as the grand prize for the final week, June 4 – 8, 2018, of entries.

Project ChildSafe was developed by the NSSF to promote firearm safety through the distribution of safety education messages and free firearm Safety Kits. The kits included a cable-style gun locking device and a brochure (also available in Spanish) that discusses safe handling and secure storage guidelines to help deter access by unauthorized individuals. Since 1999, more than 15,000 law enforcement agencies have partnered with the program to distribute more than 37 million firearms safety kits to gun owners in all 50 states and five US territories. Project ChildSafe has helped raise awareness about the safe and responsible ownership of firearms and the importance of storing firearms securely when not in use to help prevent accidents, theft and misuses.

IDENTILOCK keeps personal defense pistols safe and secure from unauthorized users.

“It is IDENTILOCK’S mission to keep unintentional usage of a firearm from happening yet allow the lawful owner to have quick and easy access to his/her method of self defense in a time of emergency,” Omer Kiyani, founder and creator of the IDENTILOCK system, explained. “It is an honor to work with Project ChildSafe in their efforts to spread gun safety and responsibility messaging to all firearms owners in the United States.”

The IDENTILOCK biometric fingerprint firearm trigger lock was designed to allow firearm owners to keep a self or home defense handgun accessible in a nightstand, desk, purse, car or pack while at the same time keeping it safe and secure from any unauthorized users.

Quick to deploy, the system uses a 360-degree fingerprint reader (and up to three users) to disengage the locking system from the trigger lock, instantaneously. The IDENTILOCK system is ruggedly built to withstand years of abuse and environmental conditions. Available in several models to accommodate the most popular handguns.

Vietnam veterans receive more accolades

Putnam resident Armand LaFleur spent eight months and six days in Vietnam in 1969 as part of an infantry battalion.

He then spent five days in a hospital recovering after a landmine peppered his legs and hand with shrapnel. For his service during the war, LaFleur was awarded several citations, including a Bronze Star and Purple Heart.

On Thursday, LaFleur, 68, sat inside the Quinebaug Valley Community College auditorium and waited to be given another accolade: the Congressionally-approved Vietnam Veteran Lapel Pin.

“For me, this is about recognition and the realization that me, and all the other Vietnam War-era veterans still count,” he said. “We weren’t welcomed home with open arms. It’s only been the last few years that I’ve seen a change in attitude towards Vietnam veterans.”

LaFleur, along with 47 other veterans from all five branches of service, were given the pin by U.S. Rep. Joe Courtney, D-2nd District. The pin, emblazoned with an eagle, laurel leaves, stripes and stars surrounded by a blue perimeter, is authorized for any veteran who served, regardless of location, during Nov. 1, 1955 to May 15, 1975.

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the war’s end, a milestone Courtney said requires both recollection and recommitment concerning Vietnam War veterans health issues.

“We’ve cleared some bureaucratic obstacles, but there’s more work to be done,” he said. “There’re still restrictions keeping veterans with certain conditions from getting the help they need with issues like Agent Orange.”

Courtney noted his congressional district contains almost double the number found in other Connecticut districts.

“My hope is events like these will shine a spotlight on these folks who did a job, did what we asked them to do,” he said. “They’re owed that from a nation that honors them.”

Woodstock resident Nancy Nystrom was presented one of two posthumously-awarded pins in honor of her husband, Mark Nystrom. Nystrom, a U.S. Army artilleryman who served several months in Vietnam, died of cancer in 2001.

“He would have wanted to be here,” Nancy Nystrom said. “We met just after he got out of the service in 1966 and I know he was proud to serve his country.”

For Killingly resident Richard Adams Sr., pride took a while to embrace, at least publically. The U.S. Navy veteran built helicopter hangers as part of a Seabee unit near the city of Hue in central Vietnam.

“Vietnam veterans were never accustomed to recognition when they came home – it was a rebellious time then,” he said. “It was hard for me to be proud of my service until about 15 years ago.”

Adams said the Gulf War led to a sea change among the public perception of Vietnam War-era veterans.

“I have veterans’ plates on my car now,” he said.
