That depends on a few things. If the cable has broken at the release handle, you can use Vice Grips or pliers to grab the end of the cable and pull. If the hood is stuck down you can have a helper pull up on the hood while you work the release in the car. If the cable has broken at the latch consult a pro for help. If you get a helper to hold the the hood release open on the inside and tap lightly, with the side of your fist, on the front of your hood just above the grill. This will usually work if the cable is not broken.

What are the safety features associated with a handgun?

There is a safety catch on most handguns that will prevent premature firing. There are gun locks that can be purchased or lock boxes to ensure safety from firing. Actually, that depends on what you mean by "safety catch." Most modern handguns do not have an external manual safety, but all modern handguns have internal safeties that keep the gun from firing unless you activate the trigger.
