That is a tricky question. Why?
Many gun owners own a safe to secure their guns. However, owning a safe doesn’t mean that you store all of your guns in there. Many gun owners want a gun at the ready in case they need it. The real question is how many guns are left unsecured in a home?
Let’s look at it another way. How many guns are stolen each year? The BJS reported (Nov ’12) an average of 230,000 guns stolen each year between 2005 and 2010.
Now how many were stolen while locked in a safe? Truth. We have no idea but I am willing to bet that the overwhelming majority were left unsecured. FYI. I leave mine unsecured because I want to have ready access to it.
If a burglar can get to them what about children? That is for you to decide.
