Why would you have to "put it out of kid's reach when someone comes over", though?

If it was safely and responsibly secured, wouldn't that be a moot point?

🇦🇺
I didn't say that I did. How is that firearm unsafe? How? you are so adamant that it so surely is UNSAFE, and by extension there must be other UNSAFE firearms in my home. Explain yourself.

the answer to both questions is that it's only unsafe in the hands of the ignorant.
But here you are proving that point for me.

If you own a gun here you have to keep em locked away and the fitting bullets locked away somewhere else in safe-like cabinets, even without children.

But well, cultural differences.
Keeping a gun in a gun safe isn't cultural, it's common sense.

While John Lee Pettimore @John Lee Pettimore is surely a bit abrasive in this discussion, I too cannot understand at all how someone can even begin to argue that a gun being out in the open just in the corner of a room is safe enough around children, or safe enough to not be stolen.

If memory serves the gun in question is not within reach of appropriate ammunition. Without ammunition a gun is just a hunk of metal.

That's the rules while travelling in a truck. Or what I was told anyway. Unloaded gun in one area of the truck; bullets in another.

But at home? I have a loaded .38 on my nightstand every night. I probably don't really need it anymore as where I'm at I'm probably just gonna grab my shotty, but it's a habit from when I lived in a more sketchy area.

I unload it when company comes over.

I've considered purchasing a gun many times, but two things end up stopping me every time:

1. I don't live in a shitty neighborhood.

2. I don't have a tiny penis.

If not for either of those two things, I'd probably own several guns tbh.
You live in Florida, so we know both 1 and 2 are false statements.

So was he making shit up about buying the gun...Or having a giant penis?
When covid happened, he freaked out about having to defend himself from the hoards (as all people in nice neighborhoods do) and decided to use is Trump bucks to buy a gun.

Trump Bucks were so much more necessary than Biden Bennies.

So does that mean you don't keep ammunition in the house?
correct. unless it's in a loaded firearm. Loaded firearms are not within kids' reach - not that they have any desire to reach those firearms.
They've been through the manual of arms for each of those guns, had all their questions answered, handled them.
they also know that I'll take them down and unload them if they want to ask about them or handle them.

Not my style, but I respect it.

an unloaded gun isn't a gun.
a gun in a gun safe isn't a gun.

i have no idea why people keep shotguns or other guns by the front door. WTF are you doing if your self-defense implement is closer to the attacker than you? Why do you want to towards trouble before you flee?

Rabbits can fuck off. The government here is trying to kill all of them via shooting, poisoning, fumigation of their burrows, and introducing a virus to kill them. And rightly so.

Think that's bad? In Australia, the government sponsors the culling of about 3 million adult wild kangaroos every year.

Poisoning them seems like a brilliant idea. Because other animals don’t get to that poison and dead rabbits most definitely aren’t eaten by other animals. I agree with Hauler @Hauler . You people are monsters.

Florida is envious of Australia's skill when it comes to trashing their eco-system.

When Trump gives out money it's like Ted DiBiase stuffing $100 bills into people's mouths. When Biden does it, it's like the nerd trying to buy friendship in the cafeteria.
