The story behind Omega
Horrific gun-related tragedies have shaken our nation and sent shock waves through Americans everywhere. Sadly, Omega Safety Systems was born from a tragic event that hit close to home. In 1989, Larry Ross, Omega’s president and gun lock inventor was profoundly affected when his son witnessed his best friend’s accidental death: the result of playing with a loaded handgun, presumed to be unloaded, that had not been secured in his friend’s home. An avid and competitive target shooter and custom gun maker, Larry has seen too many unsecured guns and gunlocks lying around unused and unattended-more accidents waiting to happen. Larry believed he could design a gun-lock that would be used. Now, there is a better way.
Larry began sketching gun-lock designs whenever he could find time. Several years and countless designs later, Larry succeeded in creating a gun-lock that met all of his requirements. It could be made inexpensively, it was “gun friendly”, easy to use, and his designs were internal. After the original patent was granted in 1999, Lary and Cruz (Omega’s co-founder) then began the grueling process of perfecting the design and borrowing funds from friends and family to begin production.
Of the estimated 310 million guns currently owned in America, less than 50% are stored securely. Moreover, 40% of those households have children under the age of eighteen in the home. Sadly, recently reported statistics reveal that nearly 33 lives are lost each day because of gun violence. These tragedies are preventable: Omega Gun-locks are the solution.
