The DarkHorseCandidate is a member of the NRA, but I do not speak for that organization. Nevertheless, in response to politicians' call for some kind of legislation to reduce firearm deaths and injuries, I offer a law which could easily be passed at the local level and which, if followed and obeyed world have prevented most of the recent carnage.
Let every town, village, city, township, county, and state write and pass appropriate regulations addressing proper storage and security of all firearms not being used and not fully under the control of the lawful owner by holding that owner (with caveats and limitations) be held responsible for the misuse of his firearms or ammunition.
Obviously, a thief in possession of a stolen weapon should be considered a defacto owner in all considered responsibilities in such legislation.
