I dunno. I don't like it. It's not something you could enforce until after the fact, unless you want the cops allowed to just waltz into your house to see if your guns are "secured".
that and the other comments in this thread make me say no, I would not support this. Too many other variables.
I have no problem registering my guns. Coming up with a law so toddlers can't accidentally shoot themselves is ridiculous. As far as the Sandy Hook psycho...he was what, 20 years old? Probably could get around any security she would have had. I suppose it would have worked in that case if she had them in a safe locked away, but then they are useless for self protection.
IMO...bad shit happens. You can't make a law to prevent that.
I'm not sure what you mean by that. If your child drinks all your vodka and goes and stabs the neighbor, you're not held criminally liable for it. Your child is. You're not going to jail because your kid it. I'm not sure how you mean that you'd be held liable for what your kid did all by themselves.
