In states where auto insurance is compulsory, failure to maintain coverage results in revocation of reg and sometimes even driver's license. No reason it can't be the same for firearms liability insurance.
Certainly - in fact driving without insurance here could mean up to 1 year in jail as well. Still there are people who get insurance so they can get registration/safety check then just let it lapse until next year.
I think gun insurance is a good thing , more so insurance companies will place some restriction on getting insurance. I still think taxing certain bullets (machine gun) and paying higher insurance premiums for machine gun owners - they would at lease think twice before buying one = keep your 7 mag Glock its way cheaper sorta thingy.
What's with these machine gun owners you keep talking about. Machine guns are illegal. There are no machine gun owners — except for gang bangers and mercenaries — and they're not bothering with normal channels or registration.
I agree making bullets more expensive - is not the end all answer either. Maybe just tax the bullets used in machine guns ?
Plus not everyone has car insurance too. Just buy to purchase a gun then let the insurance lapse.
But the only folks who can legally carry a machine gun are military and leo.
