The NRA apparently thinks it is ok to leave loaded guns around children because they oppose a safe storage bill. The say, “Criminals love this bill as it tips the scales in their favor in self-defense situations.” The NRA fails to mention that criminals love to break into houses with guns so they can acquire more guns.
👍House Bill 63 would require that all guns be locked up if accessible by a minor or a prohibited person.
