A condition on your firearms certificate here is that the firearms have to be locked away in a approved gun safe. The safe has to be bolted to the wall only the gun owner is to have access to the safe. The police check the safe and if its installed properly before a firearms certificate will be granted.
The idea that the police would have the right to enter my house to monitor/approve the way I secure my guns, and that my ability to own them is based on their approval is antithetical to my rights as a free man. I understand this idea is as offensive to much of the world now as was when we told England we would do things our way whether they liked it or not. I could not care less.
