Responsible gun ownership means keeping your weapons in a safe place, yet many gun owners purchase their guns without thinking about where to keep them.
KFBK spoke with the owner of a local gun safe business to learn more about what you can do to be a responsible gun owner.
Tom Callos, the Owner of Safe and Vault Outlet in Rancho Cordova, says it's important to keep the guns out of the reach of your children to help prevent incidents like what happened in Sparks, Nevada and even the incident at Pacific High School where a student was arrested for bring two guns to school.
"Accusing someone of not storing their weapons right, and putting them in the hands of someone who shouldn't have them is going to be a much bigger issue.
Callos says there are number of places in the Sacramento area and online where you buy some reasonably priced storage units.
He says there's no execuse for a child to gain access to an unsecured gun.
