Perhaps if the Newtown shooters mom had things locked up, and her son didnt have a key, or know the combination, all those kids would be alive today.
So, based on your "perhaps", your conjecture, you want to mandate that every law abiding gun owner (millions of which are having no problems with controlling their weapons) adopt your idea of good security? Do you really think that will preclude a bad act?
