    And? If you want something and own it, you are responsible for it. This includes upkeep, maintenance, and safety. If you want more guns, get an accomodating safe.
    You don't bolt things down? Do you keep vitally important documents in a non-fire proof safe?

    the law cannot sort through the mind and heart

    I posted earlier of people called felons
    who got their hands on guns
    but then used them in self defense

    felon is a broad brush stroke
    you can be a felon for sooooooo many other crimes
    unrelated to violence

    no law we have can sort through the mess

    and neither can we put the genie back in the bottle

    The police have no idea how the weapon was gained so it is far to soon to assume an legal owner at this point.

    Nothing is ever perfect. And, of course, having a "can't be done attitude" gets nothing done.

    No name designated at this time.
    Ok let's get to the finish here.
    I'm not purchasing a safe and I really don't care if you disapprove or not.....You see we live so far out in the boonies I don't feel I need or want one.

    my little neighborhood is getting rough

    we've had one guy banging on the front door
    in the middle of the night
    a bloody mess all over my door and porch

    he claimed to have suffered a dog attack

    well.....it looked believable

    so we called for help

    but hey.....at 2am
    a dog attack
    and help was needed

    wtf......was he doing?

    and should I answer the door?...….without a gun in hand

    That sounds reasonable.
