No longer care about the dead kid and his parents, just want to discuss this:

No lock, no security, no preventative measure is perfect. Obviously no one could just saunter in and grab a gun, but someone with time, tools and knowledge can get around anything.
It's not at all obvious that these people did not, it is likely the kid knew exactly what I know about my dad's guns: the location of them, the key, and the ammunition.
