So to return to the subject of the thread, does my Man need a gun cabinet in his caravan, as caravans aren't the most secure of places, even when locked?

Our local groupf of yobs are mostly under 18, despite being regularly inebriated...

AIUI - no. It only calls for reasonable precautions to prevent access. That could be acheived by a chain through the trigger guard and wrapped around almost anything or even a simple trigger lock so that it can't be used even if taken. No need for cabinets etc.

Personally I'm just going to put an eyebolt through some wood work and chain the gun to that it'll cost only a few pounds, I'm not worried yet as my little lad is only two so there's no practical way he could remove, cock, load and fire it and anyone else would have to break into the house first to get that. Is it absolutely secure? no, is it reasonably secure? yes.

I am not surprised in the least about this legislation. Common sense has completely been removed from the average man and examples of a bag of peanuts carrying the warning "contains nuts" is just complete stupidity and a mockery of what society has become.

Respect and understanding is what is needed.

My Dad had air rifles and pistols lying around the house all the time when I was a kid. I knew what they were and how to use them in a responsible manner. Education and respect of equipment used for hunting and not protection in the hood!

Sorry for the little rant and I hope it doesn't offend too many. Just get very annoyed at the restrictions that are placed on everyone else who has two or more brain cells to rub together.

i completely agree, and the more responsibility that taken away in this manner the more it will happen
