    in a house with rifles and shotguns, none were ever locked up (though my father wished he had locked up the antique 30-30 winchester he had since someone stole it).

    The guns never needed to be locked up, because from a young age going forward through my teens and adult life I learned just how dangerous, and deadly, guns were. I knew what they were for (in our case hunting) and what they did when they were fired (I still remember seeing what a 30.06 round did to a gallon of kool-aid during my hunter safety course).

    I never pointed any gun at something I wasn't prepared to shoot. Of course where I grew up almost every home had guns. We all went hunting and the only time there were any hunting "accidents" were when people from the city (in this case places like NYC) came up to hunt and didn't have a clue about what they were doing.

    Sarcasm: It beats killing people...
