In a recent Free Press letter to the editor, John Borgen advocated: "Serious prosecution of the registered owner should result from the gun being legally misused regardless of the person in possession of and misusing the gun."
First, how can anyone legally misuse a gun? If you are using it legally, can that be misuse? If you are misusing it, isn't that illegal? Isn't that an oxymoron with stress on the moron?
Second, if the gun is locked in a gun safe, someone steals the safe, breaks it open and uses the gun to kill someone, the owner is prosecuted for what? Murder?
Mr. Borgen is simply a prime example of how liberal gun control advocates have no ability to make a rational argument. His argument is akin to saying we need to reduce the size of gas tanks on cars so drunk drivers can't drive around so much.
