Over at The Trace, Mike Spies describes the defeat of Tennessee’s “MaKayla’s law,” penalizing gun owners who fail to store their firearms safely resulting in accidental death or injury. As you’d expect, the report proceeds from pathos to prohibition, highlighting the “evil” NRA’s successful efforts to quash the law.
I oppose any and all laws that infringe on Americans’ rights to keep and bear arms. Any arms. Any way they wish to keep them. Gun owners who want immediate access to a working firearm are well within their rights to store a loaded gun anywhere and anyhow they like, noting that there are already plenty of laws concerning negligence. Not to mention the fact that safe storage laws can lead to unannounced home inspections.
Do you support safe storage laws?
