  •  Until such time that the 2nd amendment (3+ / 0-)

    could actually be repealed or modified, how about this:
    Make every gun owner responsible for whatever damage comes out of the point end of his/her weapon, no matter in whose hand it was held.  That would mean registering all guns, but nothing in the 2nd amendment says we can't register arms.  People might be more careful with their guns, or even decide it is not worth owning one, if they might be fined or sent to jail for the murder and maiming that came out of their gun.  Yes, I would apply the rule even if the gun was stolen.

    I was wise enough to never grow up while fooling most people into believing I had. - Margaret Mead
