My suggestion for gun control

December 18, 2012 - Harry Eagar
Define firearms as attractive nuisances, like swimming pools, so that owners are strictly liable for injuries caused by the guns. That ought to cool the ardor for ownership (without excluding those who genuinely need to keep a firearm).

It would require a national registry and tracking system, without loopholes.

Even if it didn't cause some twitchy folks to dispose of their shootin' irons, it would at least prod them to take better care of them. Unlike, for example, Smart Pawn in Kansas City, which supplies free assault weapons to local thugs:

"But this recent theft is now the third time guns have been stolen from Smart Pawn in the last year, including a theft in October where thieves emptied the gun cabinets. A Smart Pawn manager told FOX 4 that corporate is looking at ways to improve security.

Last year, Smart Pawn told the media 'We also share the community’s concerns about access to firearms by theft' and said the new store would be protected with state of the art alarms and security."

We must have a license to drive a car, fly plane etc. Why we do not have license to have a gun?
