Samantha Mumba has revealed she keeps a gun in her L.A. home to keep away any burglars or intruders.

The Gotta Tell You singer left Ireland over ten years ago to pursue a career in acting and singing in America, and she’s never looked back, after meeting hubby Torray Scales.

The couple live together in L.A., along with two-year-old daughter Sage, and safety is their number one priority at home.

In fact, Samantha and her police officer hubby are so conscious about protecting their home and family that they keep a gun in their house for security reasons.

“We would always have one in the glove box of the car too, it is just the way of life over there,” she told You Magazine.

“Initially for me and my husband is an officer. Now I had dated guys before him who had guns as well.

“Obviously he was probably the only one legally that was able to carry them so that made it different as well.  At first it is a bit weird and you open the glove box and there is a gun there or whatever.

“But I thought I would really like it. But the first time that my husband brought me to the gun range I thought I would love it and I would be a bad ass and just that it would be really cool. I hated it. The noise and the feel of the experience of shooting the gun I just don’t like it.

“We would never go to the range for fun and I am not a fan of it in that sense and I think it is insane how easily available guns are. You can walk into Walmart and buy your ammunition without any real checks.”

Although neither Samantha or Torray have been victims of a home attack, she admits she feels more comfortable knowing she could defend herself should the situation arise.

“You adjust to where you live and guns are readily available in LA and a lot of people have them. ” she said.

“So if someone is breaking into the house and I have a young daughter it is either you get shot or… I would generally feel safer 100 per cent.

“I know especially when my husband would be on night shifts and I would be alone on my own in the house and I just felt comfortable knowing because that is my worst nightmare.”
