It really is a shame that in in a country like America where owning firearms for personal defense and defense against the government is a God-given right enshrined in the Constitution, we have to dedicate entire web pages to how to properly hide them from gun-grabbers, including gun-grabbers within the federal government.
Sadly, this is now the reality of America 2018 – firearms are being portrayed as tools that cause nothing but carnage and destruction, and as a result, there are millions of people out there who would love nothing more than to rip your firearms away from you.

If you are watching television one evening in your living room and someone smashes through one of your windows, the likelihood that you’re going to have time to get to your gun before being attacked is very slim – that is, of course, unless you have it on you already.
Contrary to when you’re trying to hide your firearms from federal agents, using furniture that is specifically designed to conceal weapons is great for home defense. Some of these furnishings include:
