"When I first started writing this post, I had in mind talking about lockboxes for securing pistols in cars, which I still think is a necessary idea. But, as I began writing, I realized I was on the wrong track. In this case, trying to secure the pistol in a lockbox would most likely have entailed repeated instances during the trip of gunhandling in the car to secure the pistol. That’s dangerous and unrealistic. The less we handle guns in vehicles, the better. It’s a target rich environment with too much potential for a Negative Outcome."Sometimes you can't avoid it, but anything you can do to minimize the amount of unnecessary administrative gun handling is a good thing. There's a reason the bullet holes at cop shops are in the bathrooms, locker rooms, and sally ports.
