There is nothing more important than our fundamental right to a gun but 55% of the population is being denied and that results in 16000 needless deaths every year.

The easy and obvious solution is to issue a gun to every fetus/person and hire some IRS agents to insure that they maintain ownership until death. This would be so cheap that possibly several guns could be issued and could be handed down from generation to generation, thus bending the cost curve.

This very interesting and timely article clearly shows the urgency of solving this after over 200 years of neglect and wasted lives.

There is a fundamental right being denied 55% of all Americans. This denial costs over 16,000 lives per year, meaning more than 44 of our fellow Americans will die every day that we delay. What should be done in light of these shocking figures?
Using the example set by President Obama and the Congressional Democrats, there is only one answer: Universal Gun Care for every American. Surely a right outlined in the Bill of Rights (2d Amendment) is just as important as a right NOT found the Constitution (Health Care).

Bonus, it should be easier to implement. After all, gun dealers and manufacturers are ready and willing to help solve the problem. Unlike the evil insurance companies, gun dealers don't want to take your weapon away from you when you most need it. Nor will they deny selling you a weapon simply because you haven't purchased one in the past (i.e. a pre-existing condition).

Conventional estimates state that 45% of all US households own a firearm. This leaves at least 55% of all Americans "uncovered."
In 2008 there were 16,272 murders in the USA. How many of those could have been prevented if the victims had been able to protect themselves?

My proposal is a modest one:

Mandate for every American to purchase a gun or be provided one by their employer (children under the age of 26 can share a weapon with their parents)
Tax credits to offset the cost of purchase (for those making less than $250,000 per year and everyone in Nebraska)
For those that can't afford it, a grant or subsidy to purchase a weapon (union members can get two weapons subsidized before 2018)
Funding for a series of community based gun dealers/clinics and firing ranges (especially in under-served urban and rural areas)
Monthly ammunition benefit so that no one has to choose between feeding their kids, paying the rent, or buying a box of .38 special cartridges

Sounds good to me.

Also universal "Make My Day" care should be addressed.
