"I do not understand why gun owners are not required, at least, to carry liability insurance."

Why? there are 100 million gun owners. There are at least 300,000 owned firearms in the country.

Less than one in a million get used in a 'mass shooting' each year. Oh, and half the 'multiple casualties these days are caused by - duh, handguns.....often by those who 'cannot' legally own them. You think they got insurance? You think the gang members in Chicago doing drive bys have any insurance at all or would buy insurance? Joke, joke...most of them have stolen guns....

Most people , probably the majority, have car insurance of $25,000 or the minimum state amount. In TX, in the south, half the vehicles are unregistered and drivers with no license and no insurance.

You think $25,000 is going to cover the long term care of someone you hit in a car accident....who needs a half million a year in medical costs?

Maybe we need to make sure you have $1 million liability on your car. You got a 1 in 3000 of being in a car accident this year.
