This one always gets me. So I found a solution.
I once posed an honest question on a forum, asking for suggestions on how to eliminate accidental gun deaths of children by other children.
This was after I read a report about a 2year old in East Texas, shooting and ultimately killing another 2year old that was in the home.
A case of a .22 left lying around.
All the gun aficionados couldn't find a solution. Always placing responsibility on the gun owner, yet never able to find a compromise that would have saved the child.
So for you people, I accept that the child must die to protect your gun rights.
Lot's of others do as well.
Just so you know, I was searching for a solution that would allow everyone to keep their guns..
Now, here's my new proposal, and you can still keep your guns.
Require all gun owns to keep and maintain liability insurance.
It would be no fault and funds would be pooled to be payed out to all victims and their families for damages caused by any particular gun.
This way, at least the victims would be compensated for their collateral damages.
This would bring free market principles into the picture, as I'm sure that when premiums get too high. the market will learn to regulate the "damages market".
I guess this is really where we are at.
It's still all about the money, even here. among so called revolutionaries.
