I understand

what you are getting at, but we are talking about a Constitutionally protected right also potentionally being taken away from poor people. What about all of the people in this country now that are just getting by who would not be able to keep their firearms because they simply could not afford to purchase the required insurance for it? Should they lose their right to keep and bear arms because they can't afford the insurance? Isn't that akin to punishing some people for the criminal actions of others?

I am all for holding people accountable for their actions and would not be against civil actions being taken against someone who harms another intentionally (in addition to whatever criminal actions are also taken); however, at the same time, the 2nd Amendment clearly states "shall not be infringed" and requiring insurance to own a firearm is clearly infringing upon that right.
