Letter to the Editor: Guns Should Be Registered; Owners Should Be Responsible

With all the hysteria on both sides of the gun issue, it may be time for some sense.

First, no sensible person is advocating gun confiscation.

Second, all guns should be registered and ownership of an unregistered gun must be a crime.

Third, the registered owner of a gun is responsible for that gun and its use 24/7.

Fourth, if a gun is stolen it is the registered owner’s responsibility to report the theft and he is responsible for that gun until the theft is reported.

Gun ownership must be responsible gun ownership. Anything less makes no sense.
