    The last I heard about CT today is that the Mother owned (legally) the weapons that her son used to murder the kids & adults. What difference would it have made today if they were registered to her? What difference would it have  even made if they were registered to him?

    I agree that many things need to happen to try and change the way our society is, and does.

      But surely I needn't remind you about kids that took a weapon from home to school or wherever and another child (or children) were shot. In THAT case, the parents would face charges.

      If a kid can get TO the gun, the gun is obviously not secured, right?

      If a parent is going to have a gun in the house, the gun needs to be secured. Period.

        in my original post about this - and registration would not have had any effect at all, which is what I was getting at.

        So to you the Mother in this case should have been responsible if he hadn't have shot her? Even so, he still would have done what he did even if the Mother had to have registered the guns (which she may have had to in CT anyway - not sure of their laws).

          have been ABLE to do what he did, right?

          And yes, had she lived, she should be (under my proposed rules) liable legally and financially.
