With my recent purchase of my G19 I'm catching some flak from my wife's family and friends. One of her friends even brought up me being charged with child endangerment because it is not locked away. Currently I'm keeping it loaded but not one in the chamber on a 7 ft shelf in my closet. I have a year and a half old step son and one due in 2 weeks. I just can't get the concept of how either one of them even in the next at least 3 years is going to be able to reach where it's at. Naturally everybody's retort to that is "well they're kids so they'll find a way to get to it". Its not physically possible for a toddler to reach 7' it's not going to happen period end of story. I do plan on getting at least a gun vault for it here in the next 2 or 3 years. Is there any validity to a child endangerment charge though because it is loaded and not locked up?
