person who knows or reasonably should know that a minor [under 16 years of age] is likely to gain access to a loaded firearm at a premises under the person's control" is criminally liable for a misdemeanor if a minor gains access to a firearm , unless the person:
***9632;Stores the firearm in a securely locked box or container;
***9632;Stores the firearm in a location which a reasonable person would believe to be secure; or
***9632;Secures the firearm with a trigger lock.

only thing it says is that u are liable IF the minor gets their hands on the firearm. so you can store it however you want as long as the minor doesnt get their hands on them,but if the gun was in a safe, trigger locked or in a reasonable secure location, and the minor did happen to get their hands on them, there would be no criminal liability on the gun owner

but like i said, the gun should be stored in a secure location anyway.
