    I know you are being sarcastic, but I wouldn't even joke about such a thing. There is no proof that insurance requirements would not stand a court challenge.

    I'm serious. I love it when they blather on about banning all semi's, needed for hunting and other stupid stuff. Good. I know it will fail.

    I guess I've read more supreme court cases than you or the anti's. I'm confident those things would not stand for many reasons. I didn't fear Executive Orders, confiscations, a federal AWB or most of the other Chickenlittle stories going around.
    I do fear carefully tailored incremental restrictions and concessions by my fellow gun owners and major gun groups.

    As far as I'm concerned, the crazier the ideas, the better.

    My favorite; "Only single shots and the National Guard are protected by the 2nd" Or "Obama will ban/confiscate your guns through EO's". Good, you run with those theories, see how far they get you.

    OptimusPrime - good points you made about discussion among ourselves.

    One thing that bothers me is that IMO we spend too much time on the defensive reacting to all sorts of idiotic proposals put out there as trial balloons by the antis. Youre less likely to be struck by lightening than be a victim of a mass shooting. Check out the number killed from numerous other causes including bee stings, bathtubs, & misdiagnosed medications. And, about 100 people die every day in car accidents in America. The whole premise of the other side is false -- that there's some kind of 'massive problem' and that certain kinds of guns are the 'cause'.
    Its as though some royal 'government command' came out that from now on all Americans would have to always wear DayGlo bright pink jumpsuits - and we spent all our time arguing with them why we wanted to wear a more 'dignified' blue or black jumpsuit instead. (Oh we might 'compromise' and agree to wear the pink one twice per week. But only if we can wear a black or blue one the other 5 days.)

    The media is painting an anti 2A 'picture' that has nothing to do with reality.

    Sample insurance company questionaire:

    1. Are you a law-abiding citizen? (Y/N)
    If you answered "Yes", then please skip to the bottom and sign the "preferred customer rate" signature block. A one time payment will be remitted in full for lifetime coverage upon completion and submission of this form because multiple payments for any smaller incremental periods will not be worth the price of postage for such small payments. All payments will be accepted in Monopoly cash only.

    2. Are you a criminal? (Y/N)
    If you answered "No", then please return to Question 1.

    3. What criminal activities do you participate in?
    A. Rape
    B. Murder
    C. Burglary
    D. Mugging
    E. Arson
    F. Assault
    G. Other (Describe)

    4. In the space provided, please list all pistols currently owned by make, model, caliber, serial number.

    5. In the space provided, please list all rifles currently owned by make, model, caliber, serial number.

    6. In the space provided, please list all shotguns currently owned by make, model, gauge, serial number.

    7. In the space provided, please list all other firearms/weapons currently owned by make, model number, caliber, and serial number where applicable.

    8. In the space provided, please list all arrests and convictions for any criminal activities you have participated in.

    9. Do you use any illegal drugs or abuse any prescription medication? (Y/N)
    If so, please list the drugs/medication and your suppliers.

    I just would like to point out that most insurers won't pay out in cases of deliberate negligence or criminal acts(think car insurance) so really it would be for accidental injury really only, which you already have with homeowners/renters insurance. If someone steals your car and runs down a bus stop full o children your insurance and you aren't really on the hook in most cases, right? So a stolen gun's possible misuse would be insured by no-one.
    This would be free money for insurers. I think someone should look at the bill sponsors corporate donors and see if Farmers/Allstate/Geico etc aren't filling someone's coffers.
