Study: Most Firearm Owners Do Not Store Their Guns Properly

“54 percent of gun owners do not store all their guns locked away in a secure manner,” said Daniel Webster, Johns Hopkins Center for Gun Policy & Research Director.
The survey defines safe storage as a locked gun safe, cabinet, or case.
Webster, the study’s co-author, says self-defense is one reason why many owners don’t follow safe storage protocol.
“They want to be able to easily access a loaded gun that they can fire rather quickly,” he said.
|And, what qualifies "public health experts" to opine on this subject, as opposed to, say, firearms and security experts?
It seems to me that they should stay within their bailiwick and keep their mouths shut about other disciplines.
