This just popped in my Facebook timeline:

I guess I was not that much off on the cost of the gun locks!

OK, You paid your taxes and you are waiting for April 15 to celebrate Buy A Gun Day. Go ahead and do so, but put away at least $10 and make a donation to Project Gunsafe. Don’t be a Shannon Bloomberg.

  1. When I opened the gun shop in 06, I got a case (24) of locks from the Sheriff’s office. I checked the other day and I still have 4 left. Since all new handguns come with the government mandated lock, there’s not a lot of demand. My personal guns,the long guns are in a rack with a cable lock and I have a wall cabinet for my handguns right above the rack. The only guns not locked up are the ones for self and home defense.

    The 3 young grandsons have been taught since they were big enough to walk to look but don’t touch. I worked with them to take the mystery away. They are now 8, 10 and 11. I can lay my carry gun on the table and they won’t even give it a second look. I have always believed that education is the best safety. The 2 older ones have a 22 they share when we go to the range and both of them can recite the 4 rules from memory. So far the youngest one hasn’t shown a interest in going to the range. His day will come I’m sure. He never express a desire to go fishing until about a year ago, now he’s the first one to want to go. The best thing about them wanting to fish or shoot is the fact it gets them out of the house and away from the video games and tablets.

  2. Every time I go by the local cop shop I stop in and ask for a gun lock – mostly to see if they are on their toes about keeping them in stock. There have been a few times I’ve had to play the shocked and concerned “what if” parent who can’t wait till they get their next shippment because of what might happen if little Johnny or Suzy gets their hands on my gun before then?

    The locks are better than nothing but you can break the cable with your bare hands if you know how to form a loop at the side and squeeze. I do that to the government lock when I am picking up a new firearm.

    Yes, I am an evil person. But I thought we knew that.

    stay safe.

      1. A $2 gun lock is a $2 lock. It ain’t going to stop a dedicated thief, be that thief a criminal burglar or a suicidal teenager… And it isn’t necessary for most children that have been raised with a respectful and safety-focused knowledge about guns.

        On the other hand, it’s probably going to thwart a seven year old who came over to play with your kid, but hasn’t been taught basic respect for firearm safety: because mommy and daddy “don’t believe in guns.”

        There are certainly better locks, guards, safes, and so forth out there than the $2 locks. However, a non-profit can’t really afford to give those away like they can these cheapo ones… Unless Bloomberg started writing checks. But, we all know it’s not about “safety” for hizzoner.

        A cheap lock is better than no lock.
