Another way to milk the people. What happens if you don't have insurance?
The same thing that happens when you are responsible for an auto accident and don't have insurance.
If someone is accidentally injured by your gun: You get sued, lose everything you have and likely have your wages garnished until you pay off
the judgement levied against you.
If you intentionally injure someone with your gun: It's not covered by insurance and you are going to prison.
It's not "milking people", it's called shared risk. Everyone pays a little and, from time to time, that pool of funds (a.k.a. insurance) is used
to pay off your financial liability. It's called insurance for a reason, it insures that you are not in destitute for the remainder of your life
because of an honest mistake and/or accident; a mistake or accident that you may not even make yourself, but someone else makes with your property (be
it a car, gun, etc.)
What part of that is not understood? You own a gun, you get insured incase of an "accident". That doesnt go against the constitution, surely? You
still get to keep your guns but those that dont fancy being shot in the foot by, how you say, a Dumb ass, will have the ability to claim compensation,
Those that whine and drone on about the cost may also wish to whine about the American citizens who cant afford to own guns, whats the difference?
Yes, an outsider is commenting on American politics and the constitution, why not?
This is an international forum, its not America centric ( no you dont control the forum AND Planet Earth) and you are at perfect liberty to comment on
my Countrys idiosyncracies as well as any other nations.
That, obviously, pre supposes you have any kind of interest that goes beyond the borders of the USA.
Whether I agree with your gun culture or not has nothing to do with my posts, my comments pertain to the no brainer of being insured if you possess
I cannot fathom why there is any kind of resistance to something so logical, something that will protect the owner from bankrupcy and the third party,
should they still be alive after being shot accidentally.
Oh, I see that you didnt quote on my previous points so, i will assume, they must have boxed you into a corner.........
