I live in IA. Am wondering if you can you legally store a handgun in a locked biometric gun safe in a garage separated from an apartment in the same building? So the biometric gun safe (opens only with my finger print) is in the garage, which is four floors below my apartment unit.
If someone breaks into my garage and steals the gun safe, then manages to get it open and use it (the gun inside) in a crime, could I face some legal consequences? Perhaps revocation of a CCW license or worse like trial for jail time?
