That is why gun owners should be required to purchase liability insurance for their firearms.
If that's the case then apply it everywhere: Alcohol purchases, pets, children, knife ownership, gas stoves, electricity.
This is more anti-gun hypocrisy, which is what I smelled to begin with with your line of questioning.
Odd how asking someone to spend $5 on a state ID to verify their identity before voting is a disenfranchisement of constitutional rights but forcing gun insurance isn't.
