So your phrase in every sense seems illogical to me. Way to many scenarios to say the owner always responsible.
If you loan a car out should be responsible if the person kills someone with it?
That's why you have liability insurance......you do, don't you?
Why not have it for guns? Let the insurance industry specify how guns should be reasonably safeguarded.
The extra business would create jobs in the private sector. What's wrong with that?? Damn, I'm a 'job creator.'
