Your comment was dumb
I beg to differ, there was a point to it.
I have no idea, since it was not legally his
How would more gun laws have kept it out of his hands?
Honest question, let's say someone breaks into your house in the middle of the night. What good is an unloaded gun locked in a safe going to do? You need to wake up first, then clear the sleep fog out, then get to your safe and remember the combo or use biometrics, open it and grab a magazine/load it, and then finally you can deal with the imminent threat elsewhere in the house. Seconds count in that situation.
Obviously, if one has kids they need to be either denied access physically or taught proper gun safety. That falls on the parents to store their guns properly and teach their kids responsibility, which seems severely lacking nowadays.
Gun shows? It's a private transaction between consenting adults, I don't see why the government should get involved at all.
