They actually believe this stuff.

“I believe that if we get the private sector and insurance companies involved in gun safety, we can help prevent a number of gun tragedies every year,” said David P. Linsky, a Democratic state representative in Massachusetts who wants to require gun owners to buy insurance. He believes it will encourage more responsible behavior and therefore reduce accidental shootings. “Insurance companies are very good at evaluating risk factors and setting their premiums appropriately,” he added.

So that’s what’s been missing!

Let’s ignore the fact that Linsky is a lawyer at a firm that lists “personal injury” cases first among its areas of expertise and that there just might be a business angle here (“How do you know the insurance company is treating you fairly and giving you everything you deserve? Call Dipwad and Associates for a free consultation today!”).

Or let’s not. This is all about business, not safety. Legal gun owners are already some of the most responsible people around and being shorter on cash isn’t going to greatly improve that. There’s money here for insurers, attorneys and the bureaucrats needed for another layer of regulation to monitor.

Kabuki Theater! Watch the Left Hand! Smoke-and-mirrors of the first order!
Keep on tryin' Mr. "O!" Posse Comitatus Act of 1878 says "not going to happen, not in this lifetime!!!" 20 Stat. L., 145 Chap. 263
In a nutshell, this act bans the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines from participating in arrests, searches, seizure of evidence and other police-type activity on U.S. soil. The Coast Guard and National Guard troops under the control of state governors are excluded from the act.
Dennis Corrigan, a retired colonel who taught the law at the Army's Judge Advocate General's school, says legislators should resist the urge to change it. The military isn't trained to be a police force, he says, so it should stick to the skills for which it is trained: surveillance, information gathering, logistical support. All of these activities are allowable under Posse Comitatus. "I'm not sure, even with what's going on today, that Congress wants the military arresting people.''
Many American politicians and bureaucrats hold what might be called a "Consumerist" interpretation of freedom. In a nation where liberty is defined by the ability to choose from a variety of breakfast cereals, it may not be long before the supermarket cash register will be nicknamed "Checkpoint Charlie."
This is where all American Progressive New Left Activists are swerving this argument to,i.e., million dollar insurance policies, additional taxes on weapons and background checks, check lists of weapons purchased in every city across the USA....and the list of "consumer activism" is extensive. Pray. Amen. Remember always, Progressive New Left Activists view the Second Amendment as their victorious goal towards decimating America's Rule of Law, Constitution, Declaration of Independence and Bill of Rights. Corollary:Federalist Papers...all of them.
Want More? Read: "Shadow Government, Martial Law and Locking Americans out of the Liberty Loop." You will discover that the Posse Comitatus Act has already been undermined by 32 CFR 501.4. (Remember Waco?Ruby Ridge? 9/11?Katrina? Sandy?) Don't Tread On Me!!! Damn!

Ah yes, The Second Amendment was always meant to be applied on a subscription basis, right? If you can't pay for insurance or whatever, you just don't get to bear arms!
