One million dollar liability coverage on each firearm owned. If the government can compel liability coverage on automobiles which can be equally as lethal is not used responsibly, they should be able to do the same for firearms.

I do practice at a range but I shop around to buy my ammo so I am not paying close to a half dollar a round which is what the range charges.


A box of 50 of .45, say around $22 or more (that's what it was during the Obama administration). Half a case (500 rounds), bought in bulk, $129.59, today's price.

The economics of your gun practice is not my or the law's concern.

You guys always talk about the free market coming up with solutions. I'm sure some range will come up with a membership program to lower your per-round costs.

Like I said the rich would be armed, the rest of the everyday surfs would not.


Also I'm sure the thugs in da hood and biker gangs will be rushing down to the insurance office to get insured. I'm sure when they sell a gun on the street they will ask for proof of insurance before selling it.

You know all these ridiculous proposals being posted would never happen anyway, it would be struck down in court or there would be such massive non-compliance anyway that it would be moot.

But you know what they say...."Sure, you can trust the government; just ask an indian."
May I ask who are the "we" to whom you refer?

I admit to not understanding your unsettling post. What do you mean and what are you proposing and in what type of America do you and your "we" want to reside?

No snark or sarcasm, mine are genuine questions.

I put a lot into being perfect. My range membership is around $450.


Whether or not you care about my economics is one thing. What you should care about is that I am never suppose to miss. That if I have to shoot, I hit only who I am shooting at.


Or would you rather that your professionals shoot like the NYPD did a few years ago?

Do you trust the current administration? Do you trust the previous administration? Would you trust the government located there when New Orleans flooded? Do you trust the government when a major pipe line is proposed in your regions?


The thing is that in order for a lot of these proposals to work, there has to be trust in the government.....and now and in earlier decades, that has been shown to be a fool's folly.

Your argument is a slippery slope of excuses to prevent laws bc you want to be "perfect" at shooting. That's not a good enough reason.

The added cost of shooting practice is not getting in the way of you being "perfect" bc that's not a realistic standard.

If perfect is not an acceptable standard, then the opposite would be that if I miss and an innocent bystander gets hit, do we say that we accept that since we didn't require perfection?

The "we" to whom you refer? Are you speaking for an anti-government group? Militias? All gun owners? Your proposals for the type of America in which you want to reside? Your proposals for a peaceful and fulfilling co-existence with your 329 million or so fellow Americans?
