Apples and oranges.

Not it isn't. Both accidental drownings and accidental firearm deaths are accidents. In both cases, the cause of death is an accident. It doesn't make it an apples to oranges comparison because one death is due to a bullet and another one from water. The only reason I see is that an accidental drowning affects oneself while an accidental shooting can affect someone else in the room.

What is you objection to insurance for firearms, other than the silly hammers argument?

Read my other posters where I talk of other products. The hammer argument was quick off-the-cuff response. That is just arguing the extreme end of intentional misuse of a product that causes the death of a person. I normally don't argue extremes. That is why I stopped mentioning hammers after my first response and then focused on other products that cause comparable death to that of guns. Maybe you can focus any future responses on that instead of hammers. To continue to bring up hammers and ignore my other points is an indication that you don't want a serious discussion. Please don't lump into the telegraph category who argue extremes and let facts be damned. I have listed my source of data.
