What I do not accept is the notion that if a criminal breaks into your home and steals your property, a gun, then commits a murder with it... that somehow the gun owner was liable in any way. It is a ridiculous argument.

Where and/or when might the shadow of liability cross over to show a lack of responsibility as a component?

Where was it that penalties surfaced for not reporting stolen firearms within a certain time?
