They also make small storage gun safes that are like a lock box. They have a finger recognition device in them that all the person needs to do is put his or her fingers on the finger pad and it unlocks. You could keep it on a lower shelf or drawer in or on your night stand. To totally restrict access to the weapon by use of the need to unlock a gun cable with a key should a self defense home protection arise, you might as well not have one. You couldn't get access to it in time. Consider if you are home it is going to probably be a sudden home invasion of sorts or a burglar during the night! As far as the little one, at the present time they could not gain access to a lot of areas where you could safely keep your weapon at this time. Like a closet shelf in a closet beside your bed or other areas that would not be available to the little one. Later could be another issue as they get older. But education for children is the most important objective. I was in Law Enforcement for almost 30 years and loaded weapons around were common place at our house. Not once did I have a problem with the children. I educated and took the suspense and curiosity out of the factor! Old saying Curiosity Kills the Cat! Same is true with children and guns! As far as theft anything less than a safe is ineffective anyway whether cable lock or small security box. So not a consideration.
The Constitution is not an instrument for the Government to restrain the people. It is an instrument for the people to restrain the Government!
