    Dang.... This cant be allowed but as a gun owner I believe that all gun owners should secure their weapon(s) when not on their person! Every time I see something on a stolen firearm the 1st thing that goes through my head is the gun owner screwed up. Safes are cheap! Guns are cheap! It's the ammo that's expensive. Secure your weapons!

    It's easy to enter my home. It's not always easy to leave.

    It's mind bending and ironic that Mass was the original place of rebellion against British tyranny

    I can't see this ever making it past a legal appeal. It seems like a cut and dry 4th Amendment issue. If they want to search, they should get a warrant.

    I find your message disturbingly similar to the OP's
    While storing property in a safe makes economical sense
    It is wrong to force anyone to do so. Reminds me of something I heard the other day, "If she hadn't been wearing that skimpy bikini she wouldn't have gotten raped."

    BTW - If you think guns are cheap You are buying the wrong kind, or not enough

    I not advocating violence towards LEO's in any way.....but these seems like a safety nightmare for the police. Politicians who come up with these brain-dead ideas should be the first guy in the front doors on every raid.

    I'm sorry as part of my overall security program No one outside my immediate family and a few long term friends are allowed to see any of my firearms. So I can't imagine how coming into my house would be of benefit to the police. Or their puppet masters.

    And if they did come into my house they could look around all they wanted and they still wouldn't have a clue how my firearms are stored.

    Begs the question how do they know you have firearms???? And do they toss your whole house?

    The Bill of Rights is getting trampled on all over the place but what do you expect in Mass.? They continued to elect a drunken, woman killing Senator for decades just because of his last name.

    My theory is that the east coast is now populated almost entirely by the offspring of the Tories, who lacked the will to be independent of the crown, and lacked the spine to continue their migration any farther west than where they stepped off the boat.

    Brutus my brother,"THEY" in MA,know how much ammo you have.Or at least how much you have bought.

    More union(D) sheeple listening to their leaders telling them who to elect.

    I'm sure someone has this as their sig, but it seems an appropriate reminder from our last truly great president.

    "Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free."

    Ronald Reagan

    Hard to believe this is even on the table for discussion, it seems like the next logical erosion of the rights of the folks in Massachusetts as they surrender them to the Democrats and RINO's. Thank God we don't live in a liberal bastion where things like this could happen to us.

    Thats the quickest way for the leos family to collect their spouses life insurance.

    I dare them to even try it, I always wanted red wood floors.

    Who's to say what "secure" actually means.

    -I've got a lock on my frontdoor. Someone is commiting a crime if they break in. But that's not good enough you say? I'm still the bad guy if the firearms are stolen?
    -I've got them in a softsided case with a US Govt. approved TSA lock securing the zipper, inside my home with a locked door. Whats that you say? Someone could still easily remove them from my home? After they've already committed a crime by breaking in...
    -So I'll put them in a cheap metal cabinet with a keyed lock on it, inside my home with a lock on the door. They can't move that easily. Oh, thats not good enough because someone can open it with a screwdriver??
    -How about I put them in a cheap $99 Stack-on "safe"? What? Thats not good enough cause it can be opened with a simple preybar?
    -What about a $500 costco special safe???.....

    JUst how far am I/We expected to take this?
    Again, just exactly WHO determines what "secure" is?

    I've never seen someone get blamed because they left the keys to their car laying on the counter when someone breaks into their house, steals their car and commits a felony with it.

    Massachusetts (Taxachusetts) has a long history of socialism. In the late 1600s, they were the first to make public education mandatory. Sure sure - kiddies go to school and learn.. but it takes the responsibility from the parents and gives it to the state. Depends on how much hair splitting one wants to do.
