Buy a gun safe
Thursday, June 14, 2018
We live in a want-based society. As such, we have the opportunity to buy motorcycles, airplanes, 700 horsepower Corvette convertibles and speed boats. And we have the right to purchase firearms if we’re law abiding. Which brings me to Father’s day.
I was looking through the pages of the Daily Reflector on June 7 and noticed an advertisement for a local big box store. They’re running a firearm sale, with prices ranging from $159 to $500. And on that very same flyer, there was an ad for a California-compliant gun safe for $100. It isn’t the strongest model, but it meets the minimum requirements to keep firearms out of the hands of children and also malicious adults.
Everybody wants to keep children safe and everyone wants to stop violence. One way to do that is to buy that $100 safe, especially if you already have firearms in the home. If they’re out-of-stock, ask for a raincheck. For those who want fast but secure access to their firearms, more expensive biometric safes are available. Do it for dad, and do it for the kids.
