Second, it would point toward solutions that might appeal to both sides in the debate — such as incentives for gun buyers to choose a weapon designed so it cannot be fired by anyone other than its owner. Positioned as a way to reduce accidents and thefts, this could appeal to responsible gun owners.

There it is again .. this mythical "responsible gun owner".
I am not a "responsible gun owner"; I am not an "irresponsible gun owner". I am a lawful gun owner.
I would say that a "responsible physician" should have his records open to the public so that a potential client can evaluate the physician's competency and philosophies for himself ~ after all one places their life in a physicians hands on occasion.
I would say that a "responsible legislator" should have all his calls and meetings recorded and made immediately available to the public.
I would say that a "responsible judge" should have a Q&A session about any decision he makes.
The "responsible gun owner" is a phrase meant to disarm argument. I do not fall for such terminology.
