. It's been proposed by some politicians that gun owners be forced to get insurance. I believe this is wrong as it already places gun owners as criminals. Also, you shouldn't be forced to get insurance to cover a Constitutional right. Thirdly, insurance companies have already said they can't write policies for such cases. Well, I just saw a commercial where a supposed CCW carrier pushes insurance. Whether he is really pro-CCW or not, I don't know. I was just wondering how good of an idea this is. If CCW folks start getting insurance on their own, then the anti-gun politicians can point to this and say, "See, insurance companies can write policies for this and it's the responsible and safe thing to do." But perhaps people on here do have their own insurance and they believe it's a good idea. So, voluntarily getting insurance for owning a gun/CCW, good or bad? .
