I actually taught them to not get involved with assholes that would need a restraining order. There are usually signs.....but they both can shoot-started when they were 5 as did the boys. Problem is this-cops will take weapons when there is domestic violence-and it doesn't matter who owns them....Happened in New York state and it resulted in the death of the woman AND her Father (whom she had gone to stay with)

And teach our sons. Learning to handle guns safely is the foundation for responsible gun ownership.

It would be registered to you if you purchased it legally in most states.  So how would they NOT know you had it?

Not to mention if you have kids-how concealed is concealed?  Hmmmm? And if it has a trigger lock-how useful is it if you have to get to it-unlock the trigger lock and then load it?

A gunsafe is clearly the way to go (and my guess is it will be made the law eventually.....)  But that wouldn't protect you from a stupid cop.

a gunsafe won't protect a stalker from killing the stalked either....no person being stalked is going to keep their gun locked up....and i am speaking from experience..i slept with a shotgun in bed with me to protect myself.

My 9year old daughter knows how to shoot. When to shoot. And where to aim.

She also knows guns are not toys to be played with.

Her 7 year old sister is starting to learn gun safety.

My husband and I believe that by removing the mystique surrounding guns, kids are less likely to pick them up and play with them.

They also stay locked in a safe when we are not shooting them.

The only guns that are within reach(but the kids don't know where they are) are my husbands pistol and my revolver.

 Both my daughter and son do marksmanship and safety classes.  Both shoot competitively as well.  Both my husband and I have our concealed licenses.

And yes, I was stalked, and I shoot to kill.

I plan to but not because of restraining orders.
