Dems Push for National Firearms Storage Law

U.S. Reps. Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.) and Eliot Engel (D-N.Y.) introduced the Safe Gun Storage Act, which would "direct the Consumer Protection Safety Commission to establish safety standards for firearm safes and firearm locks," according to a joint news release. The legislation is similar to a Seattle-area ordinance that was recently rejected by a state Superior Court. NSSF advocates locking firearms when they're not being carried or in use, but rejects one-size-fits-all solutions that aren't practical for different lifestyles or storage needs.
