I grew up in a house with multiple hunting rifles kept in it.

Then he proceeded to tell me now you know where there are, know they are locked up and have no reason to go looking for them or anything else.

It was a very simple yet effective lesson.
Same here. Knowing and seeing, it goes much further than never knowing, and then "discovering" it and then possible damage to all parties involved.
