Frank Vandall, ‘A Compensation System for Gun Deaths and Injuries’

ABSTRACT
My goal is to construct a compensation program for victims of gun violence. If the victim was killed or suffered serious injury through a negligent or intentional shooting, the survivor recovers stepped compensation. The claimant files a request for compensation with the new Second Amendment Commission. The financial part of the fund will be constructed from three sources: the federal government, the state government and the NRA coupled with the gun manufacturers. The fund will be administered by the Commission. My proposal does not rest on a finding of fault or blame by the contributors. It rests instead on cause in fact.
