When it comes to safe storage and handling of guns you can never be too cautious. In my household it’s just Pork Chop and me. However, I still keep my guns and ammo locked up at all times and this is for a variety of reasons. First, I want to try and prevent theft or robbery.
If someone knows an individual has a lot of guns or ammunition you could inadvertently become a target if you leave them in plain sight. The next reason is by far the most important – and that’s to keep kids safe. Growing up in Central Minnesota, we were taught never EVER to touch a gun unless our parents were around, but not all kids have this kind of training. Organizations like Project Childsafe have done an incredible job at educating people on the importance of locking guns and ammo up.
