You can fall off a horse and live, being shot tends to not be so forgiving.
i have fallen off many a horse and survived and i've shot an intruder without
why do you believe use of a gun equals absolute death ?
if i want to use an axe to cut down a tree or chop off body parts ... it's the same axe.
why do you view a gun differently ?
aside from the theoretical aspects of using a safe, let's look at the practicality of the idea.
1. safe large enough to keep rifles
- cost prohibitive
- basic assumption that each owner has a 'location
' to keep the safe
- pure assumption that each owner has access
to a 'location'
- proven failure on numerous occasions
- how or better yet, who would 'prove' that such a unit exists and is actively used ?
* just cause someone has it doesn't mean they use it.
- what is stopping anyone from breaking their own safe and claiming they were stolen ?
ya know, i'd bet some of us wonder this about you ...
I wonder, do you folks purposely ignore that parts that are common sense only to
glorify your points?
even with a safe, what guarantee do you want that a gun isn't
on the kitchen table anyway ??
it is our home supposedly or do you want video surveillance of the safe too ?
how 'bout we leave the storage decisions up to the owners ?
i'm all for gun safety and cannot think of any gun shop i've been in that doesn't promote safety first.
what more do you want ?
it's a mandatory 'class' to acquire most firearm licenses.
i think you should review the situation in Vermont.
no licenses, plenty of open carry and "safest state" awards to match
