Seattle passes safe storage law

Is the law about safety? Or about hampering self-defense. Consider this section

Seattleā€™s safe storage regulation, and the rules on reporting lost and stolen guns, state

Safe storage: Guns should be stored in a locked container, and rendered as unusable to any person other than the owner or authorized us

Wait. Locked up AND disabled? Why? If a gun is locked in a safe, or in some other locked away in another manner, why must it also be rendered unusable? Doesn’t this make it harder to actually use a gun for self-defense in a home invasion or break in? Or maybe that is the point?
