    else? Does the liability now transfer from the previous seller to me? Because if it does there will quickly become legal entities that exist solely to purchase and resell guns to hide the ownership liability behind paperwork. And an entity that can fold at a moment's notice if sued for that liability.

    Conversely, if the liability goes all the way back to the manufacturer of the gun they'll simply raise the price enough to cover the insurance risk for liability. Remember, 99.999% of guns aren't used to kill anyone so the insurance risk/cost per gun will be pretty low.

    No, the liability for the gun needs to be on the OWNER, nobody else. I think gun liability insurance is an interesting idea and one that might bear fruit in our efforts to lower gun deaths in America.

    What's wrong with America? I'll tell you. Everything Romney said was pre-chewed wads of cud from Republicans from the last 30 years and yet he managed thru a combination of racism and selling the (false) hope of riches to get 47% of the national vote.
