  •  OK.. so you have made NRA membership (0+ / 0-)

    all that more attractive.

    Seems to me if you believe the NRA is against the principles you want to promote, you have just pushed a good portion of the country, progressives included, into their open arms.

    The fact is, liability costs of legal gun owners is so infinitessimally small, anyone would be willing to underwrite that risk... especially the NRA!

    •  I'm willing to take that chance (1+ / 0-)

      I'm not that concerned that I'm driving progressives into the arms of the NRA.

      If you think that kind of fear tactic will make people back off of gun control, go for it.

      As I said, I'm not concerned.

      And if it's so very easy to insure gun owners, it should be a cinch to convince America it's a good idea.  Win-win.

      •  Common sense is never attractive (0+ / 0-)

        when it is forced by government.

        There will always be a minority who will kick and scream if forced to do something they would normally do anyway!

        •  Yes, I know. They din of people howling over (0+ / 0-)

          having to get car insurance is overwhelming.

          Really, why have government at all?  Just let "common sense" rule.
