Many of us have carried our infants and firearms at the same time. One of them goes in a decent holster that cover the trigger; the other is usually open carried. They are far from being mutually exclusive. While nothing can be too idiotproofed, a very affordable safe will keep your young ones and firearms apart when unattended.
Rust and bureaucrats. Freedom and vigilance. Front sight and trigger. Kindness and firepower. Situational awareness and tolerance. Safety and concealment. Taxes and allegiance. Love of man and surgical marksmanship. Once a soldier, always a soldier.
