      But instilling a true fear of consequences into gun owners is what will stop guns from changing hands so easily. You bought it, you own it - and everything it does.

      Right now, any idiot can buy a small arsenal and think he's G.I. Joe. He doesn't sweat about how he stores his weapons, because he has no skin in the game if somebody else steals them and uses them. He doesn't have any real financial incentive to limit his arsenal, or maintain safe household conditions (childproofing, etc.) for gun ownership.

      All Americans focus on is punishing criminals after the fact. We need to influence preventative behavior so innocent people stop dying in the first place.
