Letter to the Editor: Let’s Make Owners of Guns Financially Liable for Shootings

In Florida there has been another mass shooting. How do we end or at least curtail these tragedies? Banning guns will not work. Gun ownership is considered a right. How about we make gun owners responsible? Let us have legislation at the national level to make any gun owner (registered or simply de facto) legally and financially responsible for any crime committed involving that gun. Own all the guns you want but be the legally responsible owner.

If nothing else, maybe more guns will be secured and owners will be more careful who gets to use their weapons.
