J. P. Herr says:
I propose that we pass legislation that would provide for a mandatory prison sentence for anyone whose gun is used to injure, or kill or in the commission of a crime. The fact that your gun might be stolen would be no excuse. In this way this gun owners would be required to be responsible for all acts committed with their gun.

A) one year in prison when your gun is used to injure someone, accidental or otherwise
B) five years in prison when your gun is used to kill someone
C) five years in prison when your gun is used in the commission of a crime

Add an exception for extenuating circumstances and you've got yourself a deal. Sounds like a great idea.

How do you sentence a dead gunman to 5 years in prison? What's so hard about addressing the mental health crisis in this country?

I'm sure the Connecticut shooter's mother, whom he killed before using her guns to massacre children, would really be fearing that five-year prison sentence right now.

So 3 years ago an intruder broke into my home and robbed it while I was at work. He stole a whole bunch of crap, including my gun. Now its used in a murder somewhere in, say, Cleveland.

I'm responsible for this?

Nope, bad idea.

So if someone stole a car and crashed it, the car owner is resposible!! That is an AWFUL idea.

How about just electing a government that cares more about protecting lives instead of killing !!

So long as the correct precautions are taken then I believe you should be fine. But if its proven that you were negligent and it was just sitting on a counter in your house, then no. I think its a good idea.

We can put a million of security agents in airports and parking lots and not a couple at schools.

Why not try the proposed approach for cars? Many, many more people are killed and injured by cars than guns--except maybe in Chicago or Washington.

Because cars in many cases can only be parked out in the streets, there's no way for a lot of people to secure them any other way then to lock them up and role up the windows. Guns are different. They are small can be locked up in a secure location quite easily.

yes you are

gun nut

A sign saying that you are armed will in most cases be more then enough to keep most intruders from going to your house. A gun case with a combination lock would be security enough. How long does it honestly take to code in a combination lock?

I'm not quite sure what you are talking about.

are we having a police state yet?

raise kids to nonviolence insteaad of the extreme violence they witness in our "entertainmental" media every day and guns become obsolete.

raise kids to love one another and cooperate and give to one another compassioantely in peaceful love and equitable justice, and guns become the odious instruments they are.

your extenuating circumstances quickly make any legislation ineffectual, and meaningless showboating.

what are your extenuating circumstances forgiving murders like trayvon's

Trayvon? I wasn't even thinking about Trayvon. I'm talking if an individual does everything that can reasonable be expected of them to keep their weapons secure and yet criminals manage to get to them anyway. Why should someone go to jail for that so long as they did the responsible thing to do and locked their weapons away? Then its just a round about way to punish the very ownership of guns, which I am NOT for at all.

This is not intended as a complete solution. Nevertheless, his mother might have reconsidered purchasing them given that she had a mentally unstable person in the house.

Why is any proposal intended to help get criticized because it does not solve every problem.
