While it would suck to pay insurance, you could get discounts if you could provide proof that guns are kept securely, additional discounts if you have a CCW permit or anything else that would imply you've received specialized training. I figure if one were to insure guns, it wouldn't be that much anyway and it would give financial incentive for people to be responsible around them.

Would they stop mass shootings like the one in Orlando? Probably not, but at least it'd reduce the instances you see where dumbass parents leave loaded guns out in the open only to have their child accidentally kill themselves or others.

But either way, it was just me throwing around ideas, no idea has to how viable it'd be in practice or if it's even Constitutional.
I agree with all of that. I think the cost would be minimal, especially if you have homeowner's insurance, car insurance, and firearms insurance through a single provider - discounts would mount quickly.

I also agree it wouldn't stop mass shootings, neither would my requirement to have people train. However, it could easily reduce them, and that is the goal right? Reduce mass shootings and still be able to have our 2nd amendment rights. The solution seems simple, and nobody loses their guns.
Homeowners insurance is on the hook for liability with their insured's guns. The fact that they don't typically require anything additional shows that it isn't an issue for gun owners. Insurers will increase your premium if you have a large dog - but not if you have a gun.

I agree with a previous poser that this is not an issue. Nothing proposed thus far will do anything to decrease gun violence, but is a Trojan horse to erode the 2nd amendment. The San Bernadino shooters raised all of these issues again; the left had no answers at that time, and refused to see the issue as immigration. The only thing that's changed is more deflection.

The FBI would disagree that the shooter was gay.
The FBI also has said they've found no link between the shooter and ISIS

Name specific places when this happened, go ahead.

But then if you had actually studied history, you would already know this
PS....The Polish Jews in the Warsaw Ghetto held off the Nazi's trying to force them into a concentration camp for a full month.

Now, perhaps you're the cowardly type that would rather forfeit a losing fight, but I'd rather die on my feet.

I don't get it. Are you being facetious? Suggesting that's it's funny and no big deal that 5 people in robes are going to start castrating elements of our bill of rights?

So apparently you've not been paying attention to the saga of the Republican Party and Donald Trump...

Taullrightythen.

A footnote on this - the FBI just released the full transcripts of the Orlando shooter's call to 911. They had previously only released a partial version, where they had scrubbed out who he pledged allegiance to, and other tidbits that evidenced it was indeed a terrorist attack. They had to know this even as it unfolded, but (again) the FBI and Justice Department refused to call terrorism what it is:
