Why? We're not responsible for anything stolen and/or what the thief uses it for. Example: someone steals your phone & racks up a huge bill. You wouldn't have to pay that bill.Liability for it's use, or misuse. For example, if you are the legal owner, and it is stolen, then you are responsible for reporting it stolen, or be held partially responsible for what the thief uses it for.
Easy. It was stolen. Just like if your car gets stolen and is caught in a drug bust, you would t get charged for drug trafficking.Likewise, if it's used without your knowledge, you would have to prove that in court.
Doubtful. Most guns used in crimes are already illegal. Forcing law abiding citizens to get insurance wouldn't change that.This would drastically reduce the number of illegal guns, which is often used as an excuse for flooding society with more guns.
Agreed. I see nothing wrong with gun registration. My guns are registered with the state of CA & if I ever sell them, they'll be re-registered to the new owner. If they're stolen, they're be registered as such.This way, people who wanted guns could have them, but they would bear the responsibility for them too. It's just logical.[QUOTE]
[QUOTE] Of course, this would also necessitate gun registrations, which could be held at the state level, with states cooperating in sharing information, just like car registrations. And also like car registrations, each time a gun is bought or sold, it's legal ownership would be tracked.
