Each and every CCW (Concealed Firearms Class) we hold, we advise all our students to buy a an auto gun safe. Not simply to place your firearm in when you can't carry into certain venues, but to also use it for travel, or to keep valuables in when you park say at a mall or valet. There are so many reasons to own one, and truly no reason not to!
I have included a link to an article for you all to read. If you are going to have a firearm, then accept the responsibility that comes with it! Firearms are not dangerous unless the owners refuse to take responsibility for them.
