Employers should be required to buy $100,000,000 of liability insurance if it employs a gun owner, per location these employees happen to work. The high level of insurance is because of the number of people that can fall victim when a gun is used.
The school should be held responsible to pay for these deaths and these injured because it employed the owner of the guns that killed and injured. If the school did not employ this gun owner, this school would never have been the sight of a massacre yesterday. At the very least they and every other employer should be insured for the results.
The point is not bankrupting employers, the point is to make gun ownership an economic liability. Since the GOP under the control of the NRA refuses to establish any reasonable regulation of guns, then society should seek the regulation they desire by other means, in this case using market forces to provide factors that limit gun ownership in society.
I think this can be done better and more quickly at the state level. States with strong gun control laws that require a registration or license is enough to start a database to reference for background checks. Secondly, there are enough states in the union to effect business policy nationwide were it implemented in enough states.
