Hey there Mudman,
The fuse may provide power to other systems. I'd be reluctant to pull it. And you probably don't want to pull the steering wheel apart.
The easiest, fastest solution is pull a wire from the horn itself.
Open the hood and find the horn. Normal location is up front near the grill. Once located, the wire coming from it should have a connector that you can pull off.
Some vehicles have more than one horn, so try it out and make sure this 'silencer worked.
That should do it.
Remember: Good things come to those who rate!

SOURCE: 1995 Buick LeSabre - horn blows
My horn would honk without any assistance from me. The
reason was because the plastic cover for the air bag and horn switches had
shrunk so tight that it pressed on the horn switches. If your problem is
intermittent then cold temperature would also cause the cover to shrink. This
is how I solved the problem on my 1995 Buick LeSabre:
Disconnect the negative battery cable.
3. My horn relay was the second from the left as I faced the rear of my car. It was gray. Some may be black.
4. A small green retainer tab had to be pushed out before I could pull the relay out. On the back of the relay were two orange wires that supply 12V. One green wire that goes to the horns and one black wire for ground that goes to the horn switch under the air bag.
5. I cut the black wire and wired in a spst push button switch that I connected to ground.
6. I mounted the push button switch near the driver’s door on a flat part of the dash. I used very strong double sided tape to secure the button switch to the dash.
My horns now are activated when I push my new horn switch button. My problem solved.
Someone recommended removing the air bag/horn switch unit from the steering wheel and relieving the tightness of the plastic cover. There are probably more than one way to this.

You'll need to remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. If needed, you can pull back the weather seal (can't reuse it, but it's not that important) and you will be able to access everything inside the door
