Secure Firearms Act
Haven't seen any discussion of Texas House member John Carter's Secure Firearms Act.
As I understand it, it would require that all firearms not in use be stored so they are inaccessable to any unauthorized user. The kicker, for me, is that you can deduct $1,200 from your income tax to help pay for whatever you buy to secure your guns, and the bill states that the IRS can't store your claim to produce a listing of firearms owners. Since my trust level in government promises is pretty low, I'm a bit skeptical about that last part, but I'd love to get a new safe ...
Any thoughts? Doesn't seem to violate the 2A and might be something I could support ...
