  •  I use a cable style lock (0+ / 0-)

    that goes through the chamber and in the case of handguns, through the magazine well.  This prevents a cartridge from being chambered and the action from being charged.

    Even then, I still treat the weapon as being loaded.  I was taught the "Peek and Poke" inspection.  Look at the chamber, then confirm by touch that it is empty.

    Complacency and guns are a deadly combination.

    As with seatbelt awareness, I would love to see a public education program that drives home the importance of securing weapons to put an end to these preventable tragedies.

    I see a very beautiful planet that seems very inviting and peaceful. Unfortunately, it is not.…We're better than this. We must do better. Cmdr Scott Kelley
