Put the gun away at home.
I understand it's comfortable for you to have on you as it is always being on you the majority of your day, but the second you hit your drive you should be thinking about what's appropriate at home.

Start the pattern of getting use to securing your firearm when you arrive home so it can become second nature for you.

I agree.

When a police officer/state trooper/sheriff picks up a child during a situation (to protect the child) they don't stop and remove their firearm first.

That's why so many "accidents" occur - the gun owner is so comfortable with their gun they forget they have it on and they forget how deadly it is. When you have a child you are ALWAYS looking out for and thinking about their safety - even from yourself.

We have multiple guns and rifles, I know how to work them all and I'm a decent shot (as long as the target is stationary. ).


It's not an issue of the weapon, it's an issue of understanding his wife was horribly traumatized by a gun related incident..... who wouldn't be from that? Yes, it makes her irrational. If she watched a snake eating her Mom, you'd be an arse to bring home a snake and wave it around the family.

For you not to understand that, and in turn respect your wife's wishes, makes YOU irrational too.

PLUS, with a child you need to get in the habit NOW of putting your gun away in a secure location. That way the habit is made by the time the child starts walking around and getting into things.

Again, can someone please tell me what High Powered Position requires him to be Armed in the Home?


Police don't take their weapons home. Why does this guy?

You would be incorrect. Officers as a broad general rule do take their weapon home. Of course there are exceptions. Around here, the gun comes home with the officer.

In our state they do.

I could be worse. I didn't let my husband hold our babies until he changed his clothes after work.

Seriously, make it a habit to lock up your gun and then love on your kid. Easy and totally reasonable. I think its unreasonable to do it another way.

My rule with my firearms when I am going home, before I enter the vehicle, is that they are cleared, checked, safety on.

Before I go in to the house, I once again check they are clear, and encased. It's so routine, I would not do it any other way.
