What’s the Big “Armored Truck” Secret?

If you work for an armored truck service you need to be tough, honest, trustworthy and sharp. Only the best will do.
       So where do “the best” go to store their service weapons at the end of an arduous day of hauling millions in cash and coin from tills to vaults?
Tyson D. of Salt Lake City wanted a convenient and safe place to keep his handgun when he got home from work each day.

For Tyson D. of Salt Lake City, the answer was a no brainer.

“We wanted a handgun vault that was tough, trustworthy and did the job,” Tyson said. “That’s why we went with Liberty. All my co-workers said go for it.”

He said he has three things on his mind when he walks in the door each evening—“My family, their safety, and securing my gun.”

That’s why Tyson and his wife purchased a Liberty HDX-250 handgun vault as a Father’s Day gift this past summer.

“I love the biometric access,” he said. “In the dead of night we just swipe a finger and the door pops, we’ve got the gun, a flashlight, and protection.”

Securing his gun has become a habit.

“First thing I do when I walk in the door is put the gun and clips into the vault, and then I kiss my wife. It’s a peace of mind that I didn’t even realize I was missing. It’s therapeutic—it let’s that knot in my gut relax knowing that my gun is safe—I can let it go.”

The HDX-250 uses 5th Generation Biometric finger swipe technology, with an emergency key as backup. “Takes me less than 2 seconds to grab the gun, it’s fast,” Tyson said.

But there’s more.

Tyson’s father also needed a more handy gun vault. His full-size gun safe was all the way in the basement, hardly accessible should an emergency arise. For Father’s Day, Tyson and his wife made sure that he too received an HDX-250.

When asked, Why Liberty? Tyson and his father both smiled. “Who else?”

That’s why Liberty Safe now offers the best-built safes on the planet—in all sizes.

Tax Deduction for Buying a Gun Safe?

Leave it to a free people to solve America’s most pressing problems.

A new bill in Congress called The Secure Firearms Act, proposes a federal tax deduction of up to $1,200 for the purchase of a gun safe or other gun safety devices.

The legislation gives incentives to gun owners to secure their arms and ammunition when not in use. And, as a protection of second amendment rights, the IRS is prohibited from using the tax deductions claims to produce any form of gun owner registration.

The bi-partisan legislation was introduced May 8, 2013 by Rep. John Carter (R-TX) and Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-TX), both members of the Homeland Security Appropriations Subcommittee.

“The most common factor in the mass shootings over the past years is that people who should not have had access to firearms managed to acquire them anyway,” Carter said. “We don’t attempt to address all of the reasons for that in this bill, but specifically target better security of firearms by law-abiding citizens through incentives, not mandates.”

“This is a common sense first step towards increasing access for Americans to purchase devices that will prevent the misuse of firearms,” Cuellar said. “While this legislation is not meant to be a ‘fix-all,’ this is a bipartisan idea that Congress should immediately act on.”

Mass shootings in recent years involved people who should not have had access to guns. The most recent Newtown tragedy was apparently facilitated when a gun safe holding the weapons used to kill so many children and adults was left unlocked, or the combination otherwise made available to the mentally unstable son of the woman who owned the safe and the guns.

“We can use this legislation to kick off a nationwide push,” Carter said, “to put gun safes or security devices in every home with unattended firearms by the close of 2014, and then let’s push for everyone to use them.”

The Secure Firearms Act is endorsed by:

The National Rifle Association (NRA): “…we support the Secure Firearms Act of 2013 …”

Gun Owners of America: “This bill provides a solid benefit to law-abiding gun owners nationwide, and will increase public safety in the process.”

National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF): “[We] thank Rep. Carter for his leadership in offering a real, bi-partisan solution that will help make our families safer….”

Rep. Carter added, “This is one bill that will reduce illegal firearms use, is constitutionally-sound, paid for with appropriate corresponding budget cuts, and should be supported by all sides on this debate.”
