Unsafe Gun Safes can be opened by a three-year old

Writes Mark Tobias in Forbes

Americans love their guns, and every day someone in the U.S. is either shopping for or buying a gun safe. Small gun safes have become popular as an alternative security system for protecting both weapons and valuables, even though Federal law requires some sort of lock to be provided with every gun sale.

You should know how unsafe these gun safes are. Both small and large gun safes are sold at all major sporting goods stores and on-line retailers, including Walmart, Cabelas (37 stores), Scheels (24 stores), and Dicks Sporting Goods (450 stores). These safes typically cost $75-$200 depending upon manufacturer, retail outlet, container size and alleged "sophistication and method of locking." There are three leading brands that are sold by these retail outlets: Stack-on, GunVault, and Bulldog.
