If we were to view firearms as we do vehicles, we may be able to move forward in addressing gun-related violence.
A vehicle can be lethal. Therefore, we agree that vehicle ownership should be assigned legal accountability by requiring registration, licensure by its owner and evidence of insurance for events that cause damage to the owner and others.
Should we not adopt similar accountability for firearms? When sold, each firearm is linked to its owner by registration, regardless of how the weapon is acquired.
