There seems to be a lot of reluctance from some people to leave a gun in their glove box. There are also different reasons given for that reluctance. The one reason I can understand is the fear of loosing something for which you paid a large sum of money. The reason I cannot understand (and that burns my bottom a bit) is the idea that it is somehow "irresponsible" and that anyone who does it is somehow at fault if a criminal breaks in, gets their gun, and then uses it for foul deeds. That is just a ridiculous idea in my opinion. Yet I see people on gun forums wagging their fingers at other members all the time for leaving a gun in their vehicle. In my car I have two levels of locks (door and glove box) and an active audible alarm system. Plus, it is under video monitoring when it is parked over night at home. That is at least equal to what I have at home. I also feel that home invaders are more likely to overcome security measures than car thieves since they have more time and privacy as a rule. I do not think leaving a gun out of sight in a locked vehicle is irresponsible. No more than leaving guns unattended at home. I believe that as long as someone takes reasonable precautions they are not responsible for the actions of criminals. To act like they are somehow culpable in the crime for facilitating the actions of the criminal is laughable to me. I especially hate people who use the old " you just put a gun in the hands of criminals" line. That sounds like something straight out of the Brady handbook. SO, as long as a person is willing to accept the risk of financial loss I see no reason to look badly upon a person for leaving a gun in their glove box full time. I decided a long time ago that I was not going to allow the remote chance that some unscrupulous person may take advantage of the situation prevent me from doing what was both convenient and practical for my daily life. What does everyone else think regarding this topic?
