manta49, if done voluntarily, it's "responsible ownership."
The problem is that not all firearms owners are responsible.

I see firearms control as the baning or limiting in some way firearms ownership and use.

I found this after a quick Internet search. I am sure there are thousands like it.

A 4-year-old boy in Houston accidental shot himself in the head and a 5-year-old girl in Philadelphia shot herself in the foot after both children got a hold of their parents' guns Tuesday night while playing at home.

The unidentified 4-year-old boy climbed onto a tall furniture chest and found a hidden handgun around 11:40 p.m. Tuesday, according to the Houston Police Department.

If the the parents were required to store firearms safely similar could be prevented.
