Safe Storage Advice in a North Carolina Concealed Carry Class

Huffington Post

Dr. Ty L. Bullard claimed in an op-ed in The Charlotte Observer last week that a local law enforcement officer in North Carolina told students in a state-mandated concealed carry handgun class to store firearms "under the bed, preferably loaded."
In a column called "What I learned in concealed carry class," Bullard, a native Texan and clinical assistant professor in the Department of Anesthesiology at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, wrote:
Perhaps most shocking, though, was the advice we received from a practicing law enforcement officer regarding the storage of firearms: under the bed, preferably loaded. I'm not kidding. Fifty or so families, many of whom we must presume have children in the home, walked out of that classroom with the understanding that the proper way to store your guns was in a location that is within reach of a child, and loaded. No gun safe. No trigger lock.
