Sentry Safes Help Uphold the Right to Bear Arms
Sentry Safes is an all American company, started in New York during the Great Depression, and still operates out of the area of the country. Not just their corporate offices, but also all of their manufacturing. To the very core, Sentry Safes is an American company, and they support American values.
Their products help protect certain rights that are guaranteed through the US Constitution, primarily the right to bear arms. Regardless of whether we actually own a fire arm is not really the point, the point is that we have the right to if we desire one. There are many unfortunate accidents and purposeful crimes that occur with these firearms, and some people try to limit this Constitutionally given right because of these occurrences. But criminals will access guns regardless of limitations; limitations primarily stop honest people from owning guns.
Why is the "right of the people to keep and bear arms" so important? It is the first line of defense against usurpers within and without the country. True, today we have a standing, active military. There is no need for the militia. And the chances of an internal uprising that needs guns is practically nonexistent. But what is important is what the right to bear arms stands for: freedom and liberty. And removing that right is a first step to a government controlled state. As Thomas Jefferson said, ""No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms. The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government." Or as George Mason said, "To disarm the people (is) the best and most effectual way to enslave them."
The right to bear arms brings along with it great responsibility. That responsibility includes knowing how to use and handle the fire arm correctly, teaching our children correct safety procedures, and also keeping them safely out of the hands of young and irresponsible children. And the best way to do that is to use Sentry safes. If your gun is locked away, you do not have to worry about it falling into the wrong hands.
Now, we live in a rural community with many hunters. Seeing a gun rack in the back window of a truck is not unusual. My husband was saying recently that when he went to high school, he would see students with rifles in their truck's gun racks. But not in today's climate and that is good. But these are kids who are raised from a very young age knowing how to properly handle a firearm and to respect them and what they can do. Truck gun racks lock, and when hunting season is over, rifles are kept locked up in Sentry safes or other secure locations.
Another group of people, who have guns in their homes, and often on their persons, are law enforcement, federal agents, Homeland security, and military personnel. With any of these professions, they truly are protecting us, the average American citizen, and are people who we should honor and respect for their great service. They know, more than perhaps most, how important it is to keep their firearms secure. And it is these personnel, including firemen, that Sentry Safes want to recognize and show their appreciation to for their dedication and sacrifices. SentrySafe is currently offering a special discount, of 10% to 50% off, on select Sentry gun safes, security and fire-rated safes, chests, and files. What a wonderful way to honor those who serve our country and to show support for the importance of the Bill of Rights.
Let us all not forget the importance behind the right to bear arms, to take that right seriously and to protect ourselves and others against misuse by being responsible gun owners through securing our firearms in Sentry safes.
