Letter: Make gun owners responsible for crimes committed with their weapons

February 2, 2013 

Gun control

Preventing sales of guns to criminals must include background checks for private sales, but how can that be enforced? I suggest this can be accomplished effectively if laws are passed making the registered owner of a gun culpable as an accomplice to any crime committed with it.
