Do you think it makes a difference if the gun was purchased legally (as in the Newton, CT shooting) or illegally (as in the DC Sniper case from several years ago)?

    Finally, if you were the owner of a gun manufacturing company and found out that one of your guns was illegally sold and then used to commit crimes, would you pay compensation to the victims or their families, even if you were not required to do so by law?
