    ...for the wingnuts to accept, but how about a "free market" solution?

    All gun owners must have insurance. No insurance? No gun.

    If you are a hunter with no criminal record, arrests for violence (domestic or otherwise) then your premiums would be low. But say you own a number of handguns, a semi-automatic assault rifle and body armor, guess what? Your premiums will be much much higher. You still have the right to have them, it's just you have to be prepared to pony up hundreds a month for the privilege. And trust me, once the insurance companies get hit with a few multi-million dollar lawsuits, they'll very quickly find out who and what is high-risk.

    •  Kind of like having to carry extra (0+ / 0-)

      insurance for owning a so-called "dangerous" breed of dog.

      OTOH, how will the gun-right folks protect themselves from the gubmint if they have to GET their guns from the gubmint?
