first_imgI’m for gun ownership, but am sickened by the acceleration in the scope of mass killing made possible by the assault-style military weapons used most recently. Florida, Nevada and Connecticut have all had records set for the biggest mass killing in state history since 2012 — all with military-style assault rifles. But gun legislation has remained elusive. So let’s leave the Second Amendment alone and make gun violence a free-market issue. Let economic incentives, or disincentives, regulate gun ownership by requiring firearm insurance.Like car insurance, each state would require that all firearms must be insured before the sale of that weapon. Insurance companies would have to carefully vet each citizen applying for insurance and make sure lies on applications are fact-checked.If that gun is used in a (single or mass) killing, the insurance company would have to pay out significant damages to victims. The incentive for meticulous screening and the costs of insurance would prohibit a lot of mentally unstable people from procuring firearms. It wouldn’t be perfect, of course.There is no panacea for the problem of a country of 323 million citizens possessing 300 million firearms already. It might save a few lives moving forward though.
