[QUOTE=Mr. Belvedere;2622627]If someone steals your loaded gun and kills everybody on school with it, are you responsible?
A: Yes, because you kept it loaded.
A2: Not if you followed normal safety procedures, in which case there would never be a loaded gun in the first place.
Morale: Do every prevention of misuse you can, because only that will hold up in court.
“They” do not have to do anything at all. “They” read the law as if it were a Vulcan logic debate.[/QUOTE]
You sound like a whiny liberal, and as a gun owner I can tell you that if you report your stolen firearm immediately, you aren’t responsible for what somebody does with it. All they can sue you for is negligence, and even there that’s just a slap on the wrist. You’re supposed to keep record of all the information like the serial number, a description of the firearm, etc. That way if it gets stolen, you report it, they know what to look for. It’s happened to a friend of mine. His gun(s) were stolen and he was never prosecuted because he reported it.
Normal safety procedures would dictate that you keep your loaded firearm locked up and that you’re the only one holding the key.
