Bad idea on the safe thing. In no way do I need to have to access a safe to protect myself, family, and property from an intruder.
I've thought about that, but man, I've also thought about the statistics that have shown how many people are killed by their own guns and how many children are accidentally killed by improperly stored guns. I also think about how most intruders try to break-in homes that are unoccupied at the time of break-in. Unless you are Scrooge McDuck and live in a house that screams "if you get inside I have tons of valuable items!" then odds are, most robbers don't want to risk it.
So, I would rather be safe than sorry. If I'm not mistaken, rarely ever are guns used in self-defense in robberies and home invasions. It's rare.
The gun safe law would keep a lot more of these unnecessary events and tragedies from happening and I'd suspect that deaths from home invasions/robberies would remain about the same. Just my opinion.
