Do you have a gun in your child(ren)'s room? Would you put one there?
PINCUS: How about putting a quick-access safe in your kidsâ€™ room? [...] Good idea or bad idea? We have an emotional pushback to that. Hereâ€™s my position on this. If youâ€™re worried that your kid is going to try to break into the safe that is in their bedroom with a gun in it, you have bigger problems than home defense. [Laughter] If you think that the kid whoâ€™s going to try to break into the safe because itâ€™s in their room isnâ€™t sneaking into your room to try to break into stuff, youâ€™re naive and you have bigger problems than this. So letâ€™s settle that issue and think about it. In the middle of the night, if Iâ€™m in the bathroom or getting a glass of water or in the bedroom or watching TV in the living room, if that alarm goes off and the glass breaks and the dog starts barking, whatâ€™s the instinct that most people are going to have, in regards to, â€śam I going to run across the house to get the gun, or am I going to run over here to help the screaming kid?â€ť And if Iâ€™m going to go to the kid anyway, and I have an extra gun and an extra safe, why not put it in their closet?
