    It sounds like none of you have actually been burgled. We have, twice.

    A safe, bolted to the floor and wall, inside a closet where no pry-points can be maneuvered is the way I've stored valuables since the last time.

    I do miss having my guns displayed in a nice wood and glass cabinet. Those times went away with the prevalence of drug related crime in rural areas where there is no police presence. Keep your powder dry my friends. It's only going to get worse.

    Well, my dad’s “hunting cabin” was broken into once - it sits on a river and is easily accessed by boat, canoe, etc - and several rifles were taken. Fortunately he had photos and serial #s of all his guns and had all returned when the sheriff’s department broke up the theft ring. A small camera had also been stolen with the rifles and when it was returned there were pix of the thieves posing with his and other stolen goods in the developed photos! Talk about redneck idiocy!

    With over 200 million firearms in private possession, in addition to a collective ammo round count of over a trillion rounds, it should be obvious that we in the firearm community and culture are NOT the problem!

    Guns? What guns?
    We have a safe, 8 dogs (yep, eight) and burglar alarm donkeys that bray loud enough to be heard two blocks away every time they see or hear a human come into the yard. Not to mention an old retired guy with a crappy attitude who's home most of the time (by choice, as if anyone cares. See what I mean? Crappy.)

    Levels of security need to vary based on where you live. As mentioned gun safes are a good start, however with a multitude of power tools around my house they are just a slow down. The addition of an alarm system with a wi-fi camera system and smart smart phone alerts helps negate that slow down.

    Alarms and Cameras are easy to set up these days. I know when someone approaches my door outside, I know when my door opens, I know when someone enters the room with the gun safes. I can remotely monitor and communicate with them. In my area police are generally near by and when guns are involved a quick response is the norm. Now if I lived in the country where police could easily be 30+ minutes away I would most likely have a different set up than I have now.

    Having a display case would be nice but for me is out of the question.
    A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.

    The 2nd amendment is not about hunting or shooting sports, it is about the citizens of this country having the means to protect themselves and the states from the tyranny, oppression, and misery of an over powering government. Modern rifles are a means for the citizens to stand up to an over powering government.

At the moment a Glock 34, a Sig P365 and my four legged security system are all within reach. If that don't work I have a picture of my mother in law.

    I now suspect you are a cruel and vicious man.
