A gun owner’s responsibility

Editor, OBSERVER:

Handgun and rifle owners should be absolutely responsible for the safekeeping and storage of all weapons, and keep them from individuals not authorized to use the weapons.

In the case of Sandy Hook Elementary, had the guns and rifles been locked in a secure storage, the event may never have happened.

If a person wants to own handguns and rifles, he or she has a responsibility to keep them safely and securely stored at all times.
