Ya' know what they say . . .

The DOJ sets new rule requiring gun dealers to provide safe gun storage. The measure, which the Biden White House previewed in November and Attorney General Merrick Garland announced on Monday, implements and codifies existing requirements from th Gun Control Act. The new rule requires federal firearm licensees (FFLs) to certify that they have safe storage options that are compatible with the firearms they are selling, and that those options are available to customers. The rule, which was submitted with the Federal Register for publication as a final rule, takes effect on February 3. Garland also announced that the ATF published a best practices guide to help FFLs comply with federal gun laws and regulations.


The quote is misleading in that gun sellers are not required to PROVIDE safe storage but to MAKE IT AVAILABLE FOR SALE. The last time I bought a gun from an FFL I'm sure there was a safe storage device somewhere on the premise, no doubt covered in dust and cobwebs. I was not advised of such devices or the necessity of using one. I've also been told by some gunners that a safe storage defeats the whole purpose of having a gun--must have instant access at all times in case the zombie apocalypse begins while surfing DU.

You know what they say, you can lead a whore to culture but you can't make 'em think . . .

1. Tell me about it,

I live among Trumpers and I know several of them who keep loaded guns in their house, and I live in the middle of nowhere.

One guy has the strobe light attached to his loaded gun to blind the rapist zombie.

4. Most manufactures include cable locks with firearms these days.

 

My local gun shop has a barrel full of them, with a sign labeled “take one if you need one”.
