Naw, don't put nothing in there
No not really because if someone breaks in or steals the car a lock will hardly stop them.
That's not why there is a lock on the gloveboxes though.
I'm more upset by the fact that the glove box is so small that I can barely fit the owners manual and my little binder that I keep my registration & insurance info in.
Can't argue with that, and I won't. But if I had a need to carry a gun for an emergency situation, I would want to be able to access it without fumbling around for a glove box key. There's got to be a more suitable place or method to carry it.you really think a 4 year old should be able to grab a gun which is inside of it at any time he wants?
When I was four years old, my parents told me not to go through the glovebox because they were scared that I'd mess up the paperwork inside.lol @ people asking why there would be a need to lock the glovebox.

I grew up around guns so it was never a big deal for me. Dad thought me how to use and respect them. At age 12 he bought me a .22 (semi auto 10-22 with a 50 round banana clip) and me and my older brother would spend hours (and countless bricks of amo) in the woods behind our house shooting at targets, bottles, cans ect.When I was four years old, my parents told me not to go through the glovebox because they were scared that I'd mess up the paperwork inside.
I never did.
Discipline is key, especially with firearms. My dad taught me about his guns when I was little and told me not to mess around with them because I could get seriously hurt. When I turned 13 and he bought me a BB gun, I still did everything he told me from when I was little, safety on at all times, trigger lock installed, magazine emptied, all that stuff.
And if I were to keep a handgun in my car for self-defense, I wouldn't want a glovebox lock. I'd have to fiddle around to unlock it first before I could pull out the firearm. Those couple seconds could cost you your life.
I graduated in 93 and we weren’t thought gun safety in school. However, I had several teachers that were hunters and one had deer antlers displayed in the classroom and another, a history teacher, actually brought his hunting bow to class during hunting season.We actually had a firearms safety class taught to us by the local game warden back when I was in fifth grade school. Of course, I graduated from High School in 89, so.. (times have changed < sigh > )
