29. How about insuring guns?

Along the lines of car insurance, a mandatory policy for every gun you own. No multi-gun discounts either.
Bigger the gun, more rounds it could fire, whatever, the higher your premium.

Look where car insurance has been taken to, devices in our cars to track our "driving habits", etc.

We can let the insurance companies figure out the fine details and to make money you know they will.

They will see it as a great way to make some bucks.

Making gun control a political issue is just a way of starting arguments, look at most of the posts across this
board today. Take gun control out of the political arena, move it into the capitalist arena.

I for one would love to see the battle between insurance companies and the NRA.

I can see RFID tags built into guns, some technology that would make the weapon respond only to the owner, etc.

This could also limit gun ownership. Most would not be able to afford policies on multiple guns.

Let capitalism take care of the problem. Would it stop all the problems we have with guns? No. But it could be a start,
a non-political start, to reducing incidents like we have had this past week.

This is my wifes idea and was floated at a pre-Christmas get together we had this weekend.
This part of the family are hunters and gun owners. All agreed it was an idea worth thinking about.

My wife has written Micheal Moore with her idea.
