ravinlunachick Posted December 21, 2011 Share Posted December 21, 2011 If you travel to relatives' homes for the holidays, PLEASE think to ask about firearms, and where or how they are stored. Even if you think you know, ask again. I found out a couple days ago that my mother has a LOADED .357 handgun under her pillow in her bedroom. This is the bedroom that has no door, where my kids kept slipping off to on Thanksgiving, and where I thought the worst that could happen was that they'd break some knicknack. She just casually mentioned it to me, too. I'd never have asked, because my parents have always been very cautious when it comes to guns, and they've always been stored in locked cases or unloaded, up high in gun racks. The absolute horror of all the "what ifs" is hitting me now, and I feel sick to my stomach. I can't tell you how much I dread going over there for Christmas.
