Something I though about just now, while driving to the supermarket: lots of people own guns in the US. Do you realise that that gun needs maintenance and cleaning? Do you also take care of that? Because otherwise it might turn into a bomb that will explode in your hands if you ever attempt to use it.
And one more thing: how do you make sure it stays out of the hands of children?
Yes there are kits you can buy to keep your gun clean and well maintained. Knowledge keeps your guns out of the hands of children. Teaching them. Letting them know everything it does, what it's used for, etc. Kids that are curious about something will want to be hands on with the object because they want to find out what it does. My children KNOW what it does and they know not to touch it. The same way they know not to touch my tools and skill saws, miter saws, etc. for building barns. They know that those objects can be dangerous for someone that doesn't know how to operate it so they stay away. The same goes for a gun.
