Safe?  From What?

adjective \ sāf \

  1. free from harm or risk : unhurt
  2. secure from threat of danger, harm, or loss
  3. affording safety or security from danger, risk, or difficulty
  4. not threatening danger : harmless

Ask yourself, "From what, am I wanting to remain safe?"

If the answer was, "guns," this could be a short conversation.

The quick solution:  "Always remain beyond the maximum range of any and all guns."

Simple, huh?

Simple?  Yes.  Practical?  Not so much.

Not to worry - As an alternative, buy a gun safe.  Gun safes are the answer to everyone's problems.

Then have someone lock you inside.  Now, you will be safe.

But before you buy that safe, take a few minutes to read Grant Cunningham's article, below.

Safe Storage and Self Defense Aren’t Incompatible

Grant Cunningham

I recently shared to my social media accounts a story of an attempt by a local government to impose storage restrictions on gun owners in their city.  The ordinance specified that firearms had to be locked up, except when they were “in use” (whatever that means).

Of course this drew the ire of many people, including the NRA.

(Just to be clear, I am a proponent of gun owners storing their firearms securely to prevent unauthorized access.  I’ve said this many times over many years, and I’ll continue to say it: the only proper places for your gun are on your person, or locked up.  What I am most assuredly NOT in favor of is a law which mandates the practice!)    

Train like your life depends on it.

(It could)
