Responsible Firearm Ownership Tip: Control Access To Your Firearm
If you own a firearm, you have a non-negotiable responsibility to keep it away from unauthorized users, especially unsupervised children. Your firearms should always either be under your direct control or securely stored. It is unacceptable for a four year-old child to gain access to an unattended firearm.
It is understandable that many people have a desire to have an easily accessible firearm just in case a predator kicks down his front door or climbs inside via a window. That does not absolve one of his responsibility to control access to his firearm.
