All in the main safe except one for quick access in a lock box under the bed. Nothing laying out for the kids to discover. Wife only on the access to them.

The anti gunners know if they can get semi auto weapons of one type banned sooner or later they can ban all guns. They will claim bolt actions are sniper weapons. Soon we will have utopia, like they have in Europe.

I quite agree, although driving while drunk is not an appropriate addition to any "necessary evil". I'm guessing here but even a "legally drunk" person knows when they have been drinking and thus drives by intension.

This point is that when a disturbed man-child has access to firearms and ammunition and the drinking person has access to keys and vehicle, then drives, the results can be equally tragic. Of course there's a difference, but the victims of a bad outcome are still, well, still the victims. I think the generally is woefully ignorant of firearms and firearm laws - this is, I know, a generalization yet I believe to be true.

I do of course do see and largely agree with you.

Default Police are Law Enforcement Officers

With regard to police, I do not agree with Jeff Cooper - they are not here to protect individuals or people they are here to enforce the law. Albeit, at times they do protect individuals and the people while they are enforcing the law , hence the title "Law Enforcement Officer".

There are some very irresponsible gun owners in society. I have read stories of even law enforcement officers being irresponsible with their
firearms at home and their children being injuried or worse.
The NRA has the Eddie Eagle Firearms safety class.
I live in an anti gun northest big city. Here they won't even promote firearms safety for training children.

Also, these irresponsible firearms owners make it easy for their firearms to be stolen when they don't have them properly secured and locked away.

My two cents.

Reminder : www.ruger.com to contact your legislators easily . And yes, I'm expecting the Democrats to suffer big losses in the next election . Long-term, we need the TEA party to hijack the Democratic Party by running conservatives in Democratic primaries . Then, move the party of radicals more to the center and American values.

Dad bought me a safe when I moved back it at 21 when I broke up with my girlfriend. Mom dad and I are the only ones with the combination, and its full. I fit everything I can in it, and still have guns laying all over my apartment. Only the cheapest and least likely to be stolen sit outside the safe. We don't really worry about theft here, but I have enough of a collection it warrants a safe. It should prevent anything preventable.

Guns in one combo safe and ammo in another. I have kids so the more deterrent the better piece of mind. The concern is more for guest kids than my own. I'm responsible for protecting both.
