  •  It's not a new idea (6+ / 0-)

    A few countries in Europe require it, Germany among them, though I'm sure others do as well. Of course, to even legally own a gun, Germany requires people to actually know what they're doing, and have a legitimate purpose for it (Home/self-defense not among them). So they're already way ahead of the curve.

    You need a license to drive, a license to run a business, but any idiot can buy a gun.

    •  It's a slippery slope, first insurance and next (5+ / 0-)

      they will try to impose sensible gun regulations:

      1. Licensing (with required training)
      2. Registration
      3. Federal, no more of the state mish-mash that makes it so easy to get guns in any state - even those with strict regulations.  If this is a federal right, then regulations should also be on a federal level.
      4.  Ban all firearms that deliver way too many bullets in too short a time.  Call it AWB, ban on semi-automatics, large clip/magazine ban, or whatever you want, but no one needs that capacity other than to inflict carnage and fear.

      Actually if insurance companies get involved, they would make sure that at least those regulations happen, not because they care about people, but because they care about their bottom line.

      Then they came for me - and by that time there was nobody left to speak up.
