My firearms are secured in my house ....
... If someone breaks in and steals them it is on them, not me. Proximate cause.
I'm conflicted on this point. While it's true that having the guns inside your house is technically "securing" them, the idea of "security" for a typical house (or car) is more of a moral restraint than a physical one.
To me, the idea of leaving unattended guns out in the open in an empty, "locked" house still smacks of irresponsibility.
Yes, you can leave banded stacks of $100 bills out in the open in your house, and if you're burgled, you *are* the victim. But I'm still going to call you a dumbass if it happens.
