Gun Safety

Kim du Toit has a little advice for gun owners with kids. Its pretty good. He mentions that properly trained, your kids can be perfectly safe around guns provided they don't have friends over at which point their little brains can go out the window.

One thing he doesn't mention, but is significant, is that you really shouldn't leave them unattended. If you are leaving the house, lock up everything you aren't taking with you trained kids or no. If you don't have those guns in custody you don't know what could happen. You could come home to find that junior brought a friend over. You could come home to find that a burglar has acquired the means to kill you from your very house. Why chance it?
