    Something to think about for any gun owners who keep guns in their cars and trucks.

    This is absolutely one reason why I've *never* put any sort of stickers regarding guns, hunting, political affiliation, military veteran status...there is *nothing* visible on or in my vehicle that hints at any of my interests, or affiliations. I try to keep my vehicle as nondescript as possible.

    It pays not to advertise.

    I keep mine in my pocket, a lot more to go through than a window.
    I <3 Arizona.

    I generally carry mine in a SOB holster, though occasionally an OWB hip holster, around 3:30. But, every once in awhile (Post Office, VA hospital, other "prohibited" places)...ya might end up securing the gun in your vehicle. Mine gets locked up, but need to tempt disaster with unnecessary stickers, and such.

    I love AZ too...but I'm looking to leave. Gun laws are great, but Phoenix is too crowded, and after 25+ years...the high temps are killing me.

    Yep, I get Chicago flashbacks anytime I have to drive up that way.
    However there is no shortage of less densely populated spots to check out, some are even a bit cooler than others.

    It's better to be safe than sorry, especially when it comes about guns. I am always carrying a weapon on me, but it's sealed all of the time. Or when I am going somewhere, let's say a shooting range, I keep them in cases, in my care, to drag as little attention as possible. Besides this, I choose to buy my ammunition from in order to find a good deal. To me, ammo is as much important as a gun. I cannot shoot with a quality gun unless it has good ammo

    How about don't carry any guns. Make guns illegal.

    When you have to leave your gun in for instance a car why not remove the bolt or slide if it is a handgun, and keep them seperated until you are once again back with your guns.

    In that case I'd say there is less risk of them getting stolen and even if it is stolen it's useless until the thief gets their hands on the missing part.

    At what point and for what reason would you ever have to leave a gun in your car. Why are you carrying guns around in the first place .

    Out in the sticks people commonly leave the keys in their pickup, because the odds of hitting a traffic jamb are zero, and they are frequently the only car on the road. In the middle of nowhere, you can do whatever the fuck you want, try it somewhere else, and you will live to regret your choices.

    Wow that's a revolutionary idea..I think some people forget that the majority of guns are made to kill human beings

    Guns will soon be irrelevant, and go the way of the Dodo bird for the most part. Nobody needs a spear anymore either, at least, not where I live.

    First of all I don't carry a gun, but I do know that there are places/buildings in hte U.S were you are not allowed to carry a gun, and for those americans who does carry, they would at the point were they would have to enter such a building, have to leave their gun in their car, my suggestion was to ardresse how it can be done in the most safe way, for them to prevent thir gun from being stolen.

    The safest way to stop a gun being stolen is to not have one.
    If you have to own a gun ???????? Then.
    If places stop you entering with a
    gun leave it locked up securely at home. I'm sure you could go an short amount or time without having a gun with you.

    No guns = no gun crimes = no gun deaths . It really is quite simple

    We started that revolution in the UK, but these days it is the thought of 14 years behind bars that puts people off carrying guns.
    Except in cases where shots are already being fired, even our few police who carry guns need to get authority from their inspector before they use them.

    Well you can bet the bad guys dont wait to get authority

    I'm in northern Michigan and most households have rifles shotguns and pistols
    With everything going on I'll stay armed till somebody pries my weapon from my dead cold hands

    In the UK society it is totally different.
    Police know the bad guys, so the problem is catching them at work. As a result, being stopped searched and their homes raided every few month goes with the territory.
    The moment that they started carrying guns, most of them would be behind bars before they committed their next crime.
    This balance seems to work.

    Would you be afraid to visit the UK without your gun. I have chatted about this to countless American visitors and not one of them has said that they had any concern. They accept that they cannot carry a gun when our police are unarmed.

    Everything becomes so much simpler.
    A recent documentary highlighted that the cost of Trumps security for a single day is more than our annual budget for protecting our entire royal family.
    People scorn when they watch events such as the changing of the Guard, but these are regular soldiers marching up and down the mall instead of a parade ground in Aldershot. The additional cost is peanuts.

    Here we catch them.but our elected officials let them go. Some many different rules here the give more rights to the bad guys. If you raided them here they get a political scumbag to cry racism. My rights you invaded

    As you know by now our country is on the verge of a complete breakdown. As it stands now I'd rather be judge by 12 than carried by six

    I understand in the USA you have different gun laws and different gun culture.
    Whilst I would make guns illegal and remove them from the streets. In reality that is almost impossible to do.
    I understand the reasons to keep guns in your home even if I disagree.
    There is no reason to carry guns in your cars the way the original post suggests. I also don't understand why anyone would want or need an automatic or semi automatic gun.
    A pistol or maybe a rifle to protect yourselves and property but no more.
    The sooner the USA starts clamping down on guns the better and safer it will start becoming.

    You could ban all the guns however bad guys dont follow the rules. Ever see a sign that states GUN FREE ZONES. All this does is give bad guys a target rich

    Carry in your car means you have protection
    Car jacking road rage are real. Having a weapon handy may diffuse the situation

    Semi auto is pulling a trigger back to fire everytime when you depress the trigger

    Automatic fire is when you depress the trigger and the weapon fires until out of ammo. Now understand. Automatic weapons are illegal to owned for the average citizen

    As for the need for high capacity magazine just look at the group size of the rioters

    That's all I want is a weapon to protect my family. We live rural area if we do call a cop it could take 20 minutes to respond
    A lot could happen in 20 minutes
