Letter | Let’s regulate guns like cars

“There’s not a big appetite to do things that actually don’t do anything to fix the problem,” said Republican Sen. John Thune (R-S.D.).

“I’m not attracted to something that doesn’t work,” said Republican Sen. McConnell (R-Ky.)

What doesn’t work? Republican insistence on doing nothing about gun control doesn’t fix the problem. Time after time, multiple people are gunned down. Even before we can grieve the last mass murder, another gun rampage has happened. Doing nothing, time after time, doesn’t work.

Let’s do better. Let’s regulate guns like we regulate automobiles: license gun owners to use their weapons after they pass a safety test, a background check and a gun inspection. The law should require periodic license renewal, as well as insurance for any damage done by the gun owner.

Gun ownership is enshrined in the Second Amendment, yet, use of these weapons can and should be regulated.
