The fact is that owning a gun isn’t just a right, it’s also a responsibility. If a child is too young to understand how to properly handle a firearm, it’s not their fault if an accident happens. The fault lies with the person who left it in the open. If a gun gets stolen from you, you are partly responsible for allowing it to be taken. Besides carrying your weapon, guns should be securely locked up until needing them. Even though nobody plans for their firearms to be stolen or for an accident to happen, the best thing to do is if you don’t have them lock them.
