Touchy today? This is the internet, where people go to get frustrated cause other folks don't agree with them.And to answer your smartass response, the gun safe is the only way to keep kids from getting their hands on guns. Lots of tough guys here talking like their words have somekind of special super powers that are going to keep guns out of kids hands.
One guy I was reading on another forum said he has a sign outside his door - says leave your shoes and opinions here and don't forget to take em when you leave. He seems like a ball of laughs, don't he? This guy is ostracizing his family cause they won't listen and agree to his truth on covid. Pretty sad he's willing to alienate his family. But he's right, they wrong. Then I remembered that acorns don't fall far from the tree - he likely grew up to be like his dad or mom. What's that song? Cats in the cradle?
Anyway - Today with wishy washy parents and laxed discipline (at home, in school, on TV, society in general - all adds up) - yes we need to lock our stuff up.
Add potential for liability from if some thug breaks in and steals your stuff, you might be the one in court for "providing" the gun. I'm sure everyone on here has a safe and uses it. Also think many folks have a dresser or night stand gun.
