Real gun control now, please

By
From page A6 | January 11, 2013 |

My suggestions is that we treat guns like we treat the registration of our cars.

There is a constant paper trail on every car with every VIN number.

I would include each gun owner has to have insurance just as I have to have insurance for my car. I pay almost $500 each year and each year I have to produce proof that I continue to own the auto that is registered to me and I have to produce proof that I am insured if my auto causes any harm to person or property even if I am not driving that car, I am responsible.

I would suggest that each year each gun owner has to provide proof of ownership and insurance for each gun he bought and that source of purchase. I have to take my auto in and show that my auto is safe to drive on the streets and that I am capable of driving that auto. A gun owner should have to take each gun into the law enforcement dept. show proof of ownership, proof of insurance each year and if the gun owner has sold that gun to some one else, there needs to be paper work to prove these transactions. If a gun owner claims to have had the gun stolen there has to be police reports and statements by the gun owner to that effect under the penalty of perjury.

I would suggest the law enforcement departments in each state receive the funds to oversee the registration of each gun and of the proof of insurance and the continued ownership of each gun.
This can start with the manufacture of each gun, just as we obtain those records from the auto manufacture, and the continuous trail of each auto ownership.

I have suggested many times that we must also maintain registration of ammunition. People can buy unlimited amounts of ammunition with no questions, asked, no identification and no accountability.

I will be sending this suggestion to Vice President Joe Biden as well.

Please consider this idea and support my suggestions by your letters.
