    Most do. FYI, in the local news here in DFW they reported that a teen living in the house claimed they bought the firearm, still under investigation.

    Many firearms are manufactured with internal locks; Taurus is an example....for both semi automatics and revolvers.

    I imagine leaving a firearm out where a child can access it easily falls under endangerment laws.

    Debatable. Some would say that requiring anything amounts to infringement of the 2nd.

    Unlikely.....leaving a firearm out where children can reasonably get at it hardly falls under any aspect of the 2A.

    That's a reasonable opinion. There are no more reasonable opinions on guns thanks to the gun nuts. ANY regulation is seen by them as unconstitutional. I actually had a gun nut here tryong to tell me that the Second Amendment gave everybody the right to be a warlord.

    Unfortunately there will always be those with extreme opinions on both sides of the debate.

    No, it' not. Socialism is public ownership/control of the means of production. Socialism is not "when the government does stuff".

    If it's not a requirement, it doesn't change anything at all.
    In other words, if it's not coercive, you don't like it. Why doesn't that surprise me?

    Why don't we just mske a pilot's license optional?
    Sounds good to me. Orville Wright didn't have a license.

    No, because safety training for gun ownership would NOT prevent 100% of all accidental deaths. So that's no good. Therefore, everyone everywhere must always have access to firearms at all times. Any restriction whatsoever is tyranny.

    A trigger lock doesn't prevent theft and theft prevention is one aspect of gun security laws. There'll be no law that only mandates trigger locks. Not to mention, it renders a self defense weapon useless.
