harm to self or any other person. This prohibition shall

People are interesting. What makes you think a child will not look everywhere in a home for anything, lock it up if not in use.

A loaded weapon in an underwear drawer is not secure. I have several weapons and the ones not being carried concealed are in a steel safe with a digital lock on it.

Stupid, if it ain't locked up then a kid will get to it one way or another. Lock them up and keep the key on you.
