4.5M kids in the US around unsecured guns, yet the @NRA opposes ALL laws holding gun owners accountable when people are injured due to negligence: "The NRA opposes these laws because they are unnecessary, ineffective and endanger law-abiding gun owners."

In fact, the @NRA is actually suing the city of Seattle for a new law that would fine gun owners for not responsibly storing their firearms, including a fine up to $10,000 if someone uses their negligently stored firearm to commit a crime. Seems fair, no?

But the @NRA's opposition to safe storage laws isn't surprising - it supports their message that everyone needs an expensive arsenal at the ready at all times to shoot fellow Americans - even if it means storing loaded guns in your kids' rooms.  https://thinkprogress.org/nra-tells-parents-to-keep-guns-in-kids-rooms-for-safety-94c682543ed8/
