It should be obvious to most that gun violence is ofter facilitated by idiots who leave weapons in their unlocked vehicles. I mean do we really think felons walk in and buy guns from legitimate sources? When a violent crime is committed with a stolen weapon that doesn't involve breaking and entering, the gun owner should be charged as an accessory before the fact.
A couple of points of correction and clarification that give a more honest representation for debate:
"The Congressional stalemate meant even the passage of reasonable laws were stalled and eventually swept under the rug of the Capitol building." I will give you the fact that no laws were passed but reasonable depends on what side of the argument you are coming from.
"Last week, another school lockdown had a much different outcome. One student at a Colorado high school was critically injured when a lone gunman entered her school and began shooting. She was shot at point blank range. The gunman then turned his weapon on himself." He turned the weapon on himself when the armed school resource officer confronted him with her gun drawn.
It would be great to get guns out of the hands of crazy and criminal minded people but taking them away from law abiding and sane people at the same time is not the right way to do it.
