I will not have a NRA sticker or any of the "Buckmark" stuff for the same reason. You just as well paint on your truck "GUN INSIDE, HELP YOURSELF".

I don't even have one of the traditional gun cabinets in my place. I have two safes, one for the guns and a smaller one for the ammo. If there was a break-in the perps would surely go right after the gun cabinet and get in it. Leaving guns in a cabinet, with or without glass, can invite theft.

i agree, if they made it that far, a lock on a gun cabinet probably won't deter them, but a gun safe if properly mounted will more likely keep your guns safer and out of a thiefs hands.

Yeah, the properly mounted safe is great,

but information control helps add a layer

of security.

When somebody breaks in and finds out

suddenly you have a safe, after a

thorough search, IMO that's very discouraging.

Untrue. No such state law exists. In fact quite the opposite. Read 18 Pa.C.S. § 6106. It covers weapons in vehicles allowed with carry permit and situations allowed for those without a permit, such as transporting to and from range practice...ect. so in fact you CAN transport a firearm in a vehicle in PA permit or not. The law does not ban the storage of weapons in unattended vehicles as long as the owner is licensed or the situation is covered under subsections of the law for those without a permit.
