Legislators in CT are introducing a bill requiring gun owners to have liability insurance.
How does this help? How does this prevent or discourage a shooting?
A recent Connecticut Post article reports on the consideration of mandated insurance purchase (gee, where have we heard that before?) for gun owners. Lawyers will like it, and it makes for “feel-good” political action by legislators, but does this really solve or prevent anything? No, not much.
We’d be remiss if we didn’t include this info: Your homeowners, renters, condo-owners or personal liability policy already provides this coverage.
Maybe the legislators should consult with an insurance pro before proposing insurance-related bills.
