We all stop at stop signs, buckle up before driving our cars, and stop at red light and the reasons are simple, to avoid getting and expensive fine or ticket. When stopped by an officer we must provide a Driver license, car registration and car insurance if any of these are missing a fine or possible arrest is a possibility we all face.
Arm control and all politics are in open table meeting and looking for ways to control arms and automatic weapon restrictions or used. We see TV programs interviewing all personalities desperately to get a response or discussing the way to stop massacres with automatic weapons.
I have come up with a proposition I haven’t heard yet: insurance policy for all weapons. Any person who decides to purchase, carry and use it must have a license, registration and valid insurance policy for such weapon. The amount of the insurance police should depend on the type of weapon, usage, caliber and age of the owner. The insurance policy must cover all and any type of NON properly used weapons, pay damages cause to victims and victims’ families. Insurance will be a MUST for owners to have the right to own any type of weapon, whether for home used or sports. Stores that sale weapons without the proper documentation and insurance should be hold accountable and made responsible of liability to victims or families victims.
If insurance indemnifications exist for victims of plane crashes, boat sinking, building collapses, car accidents and any other tragedies covered by insurance, why not for victims of massacres of shootings.
Weapons don’t kill only those whom decided to used them against innocent victims are the ones to pay the price. To hold responsible those that own them, in my point of view an obvious and only solution, its to insure all weapons!!. In my concept All Weapons owners MUST have license, registration and insurance. Lets apply the same regulation for vehicles.
In the long road to became a non warrior society I do believed that this is a step TO move forward... What do you all think...? Shall we draft a proposition ?
