      guns were used to kill some other people and it was found that she had them inappropriately stored, right?

      So the problem facing her is: her guns get taken and the insurance company has to pay out. The company cancels her policy afterwards and no one else will insure her. Therefore, since she cannot insure the operational guns, they are illegal to possess.
