comment What books are in your parenting reference library?
On these Stack Exchange sites, questions are usually about specific problems you are facing. This is a very broad, generalized poll of the community and not really appropriate for this type of Q&A site. I have to close this, but if you have other questions about parenting, please feel free to try again. Thanks.

comment How can firearms be secured from children?
Good idea, @torbengb. Thank you. Interesting conversation, but let's try to keep it out of comments. Chat is a more appropriate venue.

I hope you are right and that the proper education sticks from day one, without fail... or lapse in judgment.

comment How can firearms be secured from children?
So your definition of "securing a gun" is a combination of "buy one that requires more strength to fire" and "teach them well and trust their judgment?" I have a lot of respect for your excellent contributions to these systems, but even the most avid gun enthusiast would shudder at this advice.

@HedgeMage: I guess that depends in how accessible the gun safe is. The authors stated that it was "completely inaccessible." I'm only offering alternatives to consider.
