I am absolutely convinced that the only way to end gun violence is to use the free market and pit one industry against another. The data is clear, use whatever study you’d like, they all say that you have a greater risk of being killed in a home with a gun for home defense. Especially children. Insurance companies should view guns as a strict liability and require gun owners to purchase liability insurance with high premiums. You don’t have to carry liability insurance, but the company will then cancel your homeowners insurance
This wouldn’t be governmental intrusion on gun ownership this would be the free market determining the degree of risk its willing to accept. It would also providing financial compensation to those harmed by their use.
