10. Why the NRA might object:

Once you get a potential gun owner (or even a current gun owner) thinking about safety and the awful things that can happen with an unsecured gun in the house ... they might start thinking about whether it's worth the trouble. It adds a factor to the equation that for some people might result in NOT buying a gun at all. The NRA exists to make money for gun manufacturers, period. So ANYTHING that could potentially dampen enthusiasm for gun purchases, even if indirectly, could be seen to be a threat.

I don't actually know this, of course, but I'm speculating and if someone pushed me to bet a dollar, my money would be on the NRA opposing it. If only just because they're dicks.
