Prospects that the District will become the first jurisdiction in the nation to require gun owners to purchase liability insurance were dampened Thursday when Mayor Vincent C. Gray made known that he does not support the proposed legislation.
"If there was a market for it, and they could make a little bit of a profit, they would have done so," Mr. Goldberg said.
