Unless maintaining insurance was a requirement for ownership...

You are correct. As I already said, I don't think it should be a requirement of ownership of firearms. As I already posted, there are more deaths from accidental drownings than from accidental firearm deaths. There isn't a requirement for insurance for ownership of pools. Also there isn't an insurance requirement for ownership of alcohol or poisons. As much as I hate to agree with telegraph, the vast majority of firearm death is due to intentional use, not accidental. The largest portion of the deaths from firearms is due to suicide. I don't have a problem with voluntary requirement of insurance for ownership of guns.
