Some cities and states have laws and ordinances requiring or recommending gun owners store their guns in locked gun safes. Many more cities and states have laws and ordinances that require guns to be secured with some type of locking device, generally a trigger lock that prevents anyone from firing the gun unless the lock is removed. Evidence shows that gun safes and locking devices are not safe and fail to properly protect the gun owners.

According to SmartGunLaws.org:

“Eleven states have laws concerning firearm locking devices.  Massachusetts is the only state that generally requires that all firearms be stored with a lock in place; California, Connecticut, and New York impose this requirement in certain situations.  Other state laws regarding locking devices are similar to the federal law, in that they require locking devices to accompany certain guns manufactured, sold, or transferred.  Five of the eleven states also set standards for the design of locking devices or require them to be approved by a state agency for effectiveness.”
