The Truth about Liability Insurance and Guns
Is liability insurance enough to provide appropriate coverage after an active shooter situation?
After a record-breaking year for mass shootings, the country calls for gun control or arming more people with guns abound. There are also calls for requiring gun owners to have liability insurance; unfortunately, it is not that easy. No insurance policy is going to provide coverage for intentional acts. Insurance is a transfer of risk, and the risk must be from a fortuitous loss, not a deliberate action.
