Churchillwasright, your points need to be repeated. With both Sandy Hook and this latest case, this guns were legally obtained by a family member of the person who committed the crime. There are already laws in some states if your gun was used in a crime, but they are not always strictly enforced. Also add civil penalties to the mix. If a gun owner doesn’t take resonable means to secure their gun and it is used in a crime, then the victim or their family should have an easy time to include them in a lawsuit. If faced with possible prison time and losing a large lawsuit, I would hope the gun owners out there not securing their guns would quickly find a way to do so.
