    Guns are radioactive.

    1.  The longer you are exposed to guns in the open, the greater chance they will harm you.

    2.  Keep them in safe, locked storage whenever they are not being used.

    3. Use them only as long as necessary, then put them immediately back into safe storage - again, minimize exposure time.

    4.  Be mindful to follow all safety procedures whenever you remove the guns from storage through the time that they are safely put back.  Never bypass safety procedures.

    I wish there were regulations for safe handling/storage on the books that could be enforced from a fine and/or other penalty standpoint.  Make gun owners realize these aren't casual objects, but that they are radioactive, dangerous materials.
