    No. All this would do is penalize legal gun owners for acting lawfully. (Criminals wouldn't insure.) Most victims of gun violence are suicides and, obviously, wouldn't collect.
    No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms. Thomas Jefferson (1776)

    I ask sir, what is the militia? It is the whole people except for a few politicians. - George Mason (father of the Bill of Rights and The Virginia Declaration of Rights)

    How can anyone collect? Unless the gun discharges by its own actions .. which it cannot.

    They are getting these bills from other countries with different civil rules.

    What do you think?
    (Note: This is an unscientific poll.)


    Should gun owners be required to carry insurance?

    • Yes. It would make people think twice about buying semi-automatic weapons and having large arsenals because the insurance costs would be high. And it would compensate victims of gun violence. (24 responses)
      11%

    • No. All this would do is penalize legal gun owners for acting lawfully. (Criminals wouldn't insure.) Most victims of gun violence are suicides and, obviously, wouldn't collect. (86 responses)
      41%

    • Yes. Car owners must have insurance; why not gun owners? (29 responses)
      14%

    • No. Driving a car is a privilege. Owning a weapon is a right protected by the Constitution. Mandatory insurance would turn insurers into regulators. (73 responses)
      34%

    Share it and spread it around please guys. I am sure the anti-rights cultists will and we could always use the help in Connecticut.
