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.
"The idea of mandating liability insurance for potential acts really challenges sound public policy," said Eric Goldberg, vice president of the American Insurance Association. "We'd be allowing individuals to escape the financial consequences of their intentional acts merely because they purchased an insurance policy."
"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.
