I'd say this interlocks a lot with that hero mentality mentioned earlier. Like "always be ready to shoot the bad guy!" but when you have to fiddle around with locks and shit it doesn't fit this narrative of casually grabbing your gun from under your pillow and shoot the intruder or something. There is this conflict between responsible gun ownership and a more or less secret wish of being an action movie hero. On one hand guns should be stored away safely but on the other hand that makes them useless in the context of those heroic stories certain gun lovers tell each other in order to justify their love for guns. So in result they ignore safety issues in favour of this irrational dream of becoming a hero who saves the day.
