Mr. Furious left the gun safe unlocked today

The last time this happened, I told Mr. Furious and he turned the situation into an attack on me. He became indignant that I was "judging" him for making a mistake. Basically, he did the typical abuser thing - he got mad at me for being upset by something he did.
Do I call him on this or just let it go? It won't do any good anyway, but I suppose I should do my due diligence. I had a talk with my son about what happened, and I think we had a good discussion about firearm safety. But, honestly, it isn't my son's responsibility to keep himself safe - it's his parents' responsibility.
I really thought that the first time this happened would be the last. I feel like I can't trust my husband to be careful, and I have no recourse. Criminey on a crutch, why couldn't I have married a nice, normal man who doesn't drink too much and thinks about his child's safety?!? AHHHHHHH!!!!!

My H is a hunter, so we have a gun safe and guns, and it isn't a bad idea to teach gun safety from day one, so, good job having that conversation with your son.

If he cannot keep the guns secure, you need to do it. Call the authorities and find out if there is a gun safety course for adults and children. Take proactive action. Let your husband know this as well. Do every thing you can.
But remove the guns before your son, or one of his friends, or a visitor, or someone mistreats those guns.
