I am a moderate gun enthusiast that is sickened by events like these. The gun show loopholes can be closed without reducing ownership rights, but in
general, the biggest problem with gun misuse in not the acquisition of firearms but rather responsible ***ownership*** of a firearm.
If a gun owner provides open access to their firearms by other individuals - especially those who cannot acquire them independently - then the gun
owner should share legal responsibility for the acts committed with their firearms.
My guns and ammo are locked down - my sons cannot access and will not gain access until they are 21 and pass a background check to purchase ontheir
own. Too many gun owners toss weapons in drawers or closets, or provide routine access to children or friends thinking this is OK. Legislation
regarding responsibility in this area is what is needed.
