While I agree with the idea of a person being able to defend himself and his loved ones with a handgun or rifle, I have a hard time believing the bad guys are going to broadcast their evil intent early enough for you to go and unlock your .45, remove the trigger lock, and then remember where you stashed the clip and ammo. If a home protection device, be it a Glock or a baseball bat, is not immediately ready to hand, it is useless.
Train your children to leave dangerous things alone. You don't lock up the stove for fear they will burn themselves, do you?
I, and my brothers, were around guns from birth, and never even heard of an incident where a child was injured handling a gun. We knew better!
