Gun violence Obama's legacy

info@islandpacket.comNovember 5, 2013 

Obama would like his legacy to be Obamacare. However, he has a different legacy.

Nationally, the violent crime rate increased 15 percent in 2012. It's the second year in a row the rate has increased. It's because of Obama's inability to stand up to the National Rifle Association and chance losing votes for the Democratic Party.

I would like to make two suggestions. First, every gun purchased should have a combination and the owner be responsible for it. Second, all guns purchased should be required to carry liability insurance as do cars, boats, houses and motorcycles. If the gun is used to hurt or kill someone, the insurance will pay the victim or his/her family. A great number of these tragedies were committed against innocent children and still nothing is done?
