Boulder Mobile Locksmiths: Gun Safes Proving Best Firearm Theft Deterrent
In recent Locksmith news, Sheriff Departments around the U.S. are claiming gun safes are proven to be the best way to protect your firearms from theft. Each year the ATF develops a statistic report for firearm theft, last year the ATF reported over 1.4 million firearms stolen. That is a record number, and many speculate recent changes and attempts to change firearm laws has caused the almost 48% hike in weapon theft.
The Sheriffs Departments stated that those who do not properly store their guns within their home are unwittingly allowing the black market sale of unauthorized weapons. Their solution to the problem includes installing a safe that is hard to move within your residence. The safe should be awkward, heavy, in an unsuspecting location, and if possible, bolted to the floor.
Though it is currently the right of every American to bear arms, it is the owners inherent responsibility to keep weapons safe from the hands of thieves and children. The Sheriffs Departments noted that firearm purchase permits have nearly doubled, and education about gun safety and proper storage is imperative to keeping unauthorized weapons off the streets.
