The issue is assault guns outside of military use.
Gun control has never been the issue. Gun control is a frame paid for by the NRA.
The simple solution to the problem of mass killings involving assault guns is the same we have for cars.
Everyone has the right to buy a Ferrari but, the are required by law to also get insurance that compensates for the potential harm reckless use of the item can cause to society.
Assault gun insurance should be required. The more powerful the assault weapon, the higher the premium.
The fat cats of the insurance industry would get a big win, while nut jobs that can't deal with reality unless they own and carry an assault gun will have to be able to also afford some pretty expensive assualt gun insurance. At least when one of them goes off the rails, the victims families are compensated from the insurance.
Everybody wins, the nut boys are free to still buy assault guns, the insurance companies rake in more dough, the victims families get some compensation, and mass killers are reduced in number to only the very rich.This comment was edited on Feb 23, 2018, 07:49.
