A message for gun owners.
I'll make this short and to the point.
When you are not in direct control or observation of your firearms, to the best of your means and financial abilities PLEASE keep your firearms locked and secured.
I've given this a lot of thought. A high percentage of these 'mass shootings' happen because guns are stolen and obtained from lawful gun owners that didn't keep them secured from unauthorized users. The recent NM shooting is one example.
We need to step up and realize these aren't just monetary 'theft losses', but powerful tools that can be used to commit horrible crimes.
Banning firearms isn't the answer, we know that. If we treated our gun's security the same as our gold, silver and expensive cars, many of these tragic news stories would be staved off.
Thank you, hopefully it won't step on too many toes.
