I'm in Florida, and also am not a fan of trigger locks...and don't use them.
My principal HD weapon is in a quick access electronic coded safe by the bed. I keep a carry weapon (of the day) in a separate combo-locked Plano case in the top of a closet when not used. All other guns are locked in a separate safe at all times.
We gotta keep our guns out of the hand of our children, which includes visiting children; we may know our kids, but as DonP stated, "what about their friends?"
