So my new roommate has a 3 year old half the month, I just went to take a poo and smoke a cigarette on the balcony, so I took my gun off my person, set it on the bar/counter (about four feet high) and he says "hey can you start keeping your guns in your room and unload them or something? It just worries me my son will get a hold of one" Now I'm all about a kid not getting a hold of any gun, but at the same time this kid is spoiled as shit and not disciplined at all, so what's next he wants me to leave my gun locked all the time? I think I'm gonna tell him if he won't discipline his son, that's fine but on this issue if he doesn't, I will. I grew up in a home with guns, and they were never locked. I was to young to know if they were loaded, but I also never touched them to find out, because I new what would happen if I did, and I'm a firm believer that a solid teaching is stronger than any lock, locks can be gotten around (obviously not by a three year old) but knowledge is in their head that they know the repercussions of touching a gun. I dunno, what's WMD's opinion?
