The safety bullet can't take the place of a handgun safe (which is the only possible use, IMO) - what if the kid racks the slide, as they've seen done in countless video games and movies?
That is why you can put two safety bullets in, one in the chamber, one in the top of the mag, and when kid or badguy racks the slide, he chambers another safety bullet, thus locking up the gun if he tries to shoot it. Of course I agree with you, but I think it's a good option for, e.g., people who don't lock up their guns because they don't expect anyone to come snooping, or sometimes lock them, or whatever. In any case, it's good to have options IMO. Obviously it doesn't replace good discipline.
