In brief: Safe/locks
A good gun safe can double as a home for some family valuables.
There are a number of trigger locks and quick entry safes on the market that provide quick access but eliminate child entry. As mentioned, kids taught gun handling and safety as early as age 4 are less likely to play with any gun they find anywhere.

In brief: See below
Don't have any in your house.
If you do, they should be locked in a safe, and the ammunition locked in a separate safe. Also, assure where ever your child goes, ask if there are guns.

It is also a good idea to teach your kids gun safety. Have them take a course and take them to the range regularly. In that way, they will get rid of their natural curiousity about these tools and will know how to be safe around guns. Ammunition should not be locked in a separate safe any more than the gasoline in your car should be syphoned off and locked up.
