    Gun Control Proposal of the Day:

    Make the registered owner of any assault weapon criminally and civilly responsible for any damage or loss of life that his/her weapon is involved in, regardless of who the person was carrying the weapon at the time of the crime.

    If people want to own these weapons, they should own the tremendous responsibility of doing so, and be held accountable.

    So if a spouse, son, daughter, uncle, brother, friend, friend of son, etc... gets you assault weapon and commits a crime you are completely liable, and criminally prosecuted to the full extent of the law.

    This might take some of the fun out of owning these weapons.

    You would think the army would have some sort of sleeping gas that is undetectable that would not harm them so some one could get in and rescue that child? Just thinking out loud....
