Silly Me, all these years I thought teaching your kids about gun safety was the answer. For very young children, i think this gun safe is a good part of securing your weapons, but should not be your only defense. Things happen, a gun can be left unsecured. If your children have not been taught the basics e.g., this is a real gun, it is not a toy, it will kill what ever it is pointed at, then you have failed. I was raised before in a different age, there where always loaded weapons in the house i learned at a very young age 4-5 that you don't even look at dad's gun, or you get a smack on the ***, i would have never even consider touching one of them. i have tried to raise my step kids in a similar manner. my step son started shooting at 8 years old, he is 11 now and i have to be on my toes, or he will out shoot me.

Reading comprehension FTL. IF you read my original post, I stated that at this point they are a little young (4 1/2 and 2 years old) to really understand gun safety. When they are older, certainly gun safety training is in order, but until then, this is my next best option. Oh, and by way, nice to not even read my original post and just post a completely condescending glib reply.
