Why You Need a Gun Safe
If you have guns, you should probably have a gun safe. Don’t believe us? Here are six reasons why you should consider getting a gun safe:
First and foremost, one of the first rules of gun safety is to control who has access to your guns. This, of course, includes burglars, but also children, babysitters, friends, visitors, house-sitters, your family, and anyone else that enters your home. A gun safe helps you follow the fundamental rule of gun safety—limiting access.
2.It’s the Law
Something else to keep in mind is that some states require guns to be locked up to protect access to children. There is no federal requirement, but if you live in one of the 25 states that require it or the District of Columbia, you may face criminal liability for negligent storage.
Guns and children don’t mix. No matter what age your children are, guns should be locked up in a safe to keep children from accessing them. Younger children might see it as a toy and not realize pulling the trigger can have devastating circumstances and older kids might want to “show off” to their friends. In either scenario, the consequences can be devastating and a gun safe can help prevent that.
A gun safe might also be required by your homeowner’s insurance. Depending on the number and type of guns in your own, you may be required to keep them locked in a gun safe in order to keep coverage.
While some insurance companies do not require a gun safe, they may offer discounts for having one. Just like there are discounts for having an alarm system or being located close to a fire hydrant, you can also get a discount on your insurance by having your guns locked in a gun safe.
Finally, a gun safe can also protect your guns. If someone breaks into your home and finds the guns and they aren’t in a secure safe, they can easily steal them. It’s a good idea to keep valuables locked in a safe and guns certainly qualify.
