  • NEVER. I would NOT keep a gun in my home for safety purposes. The chances of me having to use it are less than my kid finding it and tragedy happening.

  • Educate yourself on firearms and educate your children about them and we wouldn't have so many problems with people getting hurt

  • we have one is safty lock is on and also locked in a gun safe way up in our closet i woulnt say we have it for safty though its just something that my husband got from his grandfather that has passed away. im not against guns being in the home you have to teach your children from a very early age guns are not toys and they are not to be touched if they happen to find them.

  • I don't own a gun, never will. I never would have regardless, but ESPECIALLY not with kids in the house. I don't see the point.

  • My husband owns guns that are worth a ton of $$ locked up in a steel cabinet in a garage. I don't mind, but they aren't allowed in my house, or near my children.
