Janq, similar question to you-
if all your guns are locked up with cable locks, what would you want your teenage daughter to do who's home all alone and someone breaks in with intent to rape/kill her?
would you want her access to the gun completely restricted? Would you even want it slowed by 1/2 second by her having to try and get a cable lock off?
If your guns are stored or kept appropriately to your own situation, that may change when you have guests over. Things that you keep out may need to be moved or locked up; guns that you keep loaded may need to be unloaded and stored. It requires constant attention and assessment.
(I)advise my own students to lock up their guns and repeat same online among gunfu forums to LOCK UP YOUR GUNS!!...That I won't back down from that position.
If it's not on your person or you are not in the room with direct control of the gun, lock it up! "
From the quotes above it apparently DID need to be made mention of because it sounds like you are saying LOCK UP YOUR GUNS pretty definitively. What I quoted made more of a regard to the certain situation and circumstances and I think is the real answer to all of this rather than an all encompassing LOCK UP YOUR GUNS directive that it seems you were originally prescribing.

Agreed...And that item was so obvious it really shouldn't even have been an item to make mention of.
She definitely should have been educated to not allow people in the house in areas where guns are especially when alcohol is involved. For me growing up, my parents room was ALWAYS off limits to friends and I was educated as such.
As well in this story the girl herself in her own home was _educated_.
Lack of education was not her problem.
