I'm really at a loss here. How in the world is your 5-year-old going to gain "uncontrolled access to your firearm" when it's holstered on your body? Is your child going to wrestle it away from you? And at that point how is the child "uncontrolled"? Are you then going to sit back and just watch your child play with your gun? I simply don't understand your logic here.

Guns stashed around the house can be found. And kids are smart; given enough time (and tips from the internet) they could manage to get into many of the small gun safes on the market. These are some of the reasons I carry my primary home-defense gun on my body; I don't want children to be able to gain uncontrolled access to my firearm.
