    Or do you disagree with both parts?
    Now that you mention it I disagree with both. Because the simple fact of driving alone leaves you seconds from disaster. Or the fact that your walking on the street. Everything has risks for disaster. Does that stop you from doing them? By just living your seconds from disaster and don't even know it. Unless of course you stay sitting in front of your computer all day and don't move, but even then your computer's power supply could short out and cause a fire.

    I am not going to stop riding my motorcycle or anything you may think is risky just to avoid disaster. Because if its your time to come in contact with disaster you will. Nothing you can do about it.

    And I just notice in my other reply I said I disagreed with your first quote. refuring to the first one right above my post.

    At least phissionkorps understands insurance enough to acknowledge that insurance companies may recognize guns as posing a risk.

    How many other people disagree with the first quote, or either part of it?

    this reasoning could be used to ban everything from cars to 5th floor walk up apartments...if this is how your going to argue for that banning of guns you arguing for stuffing everyone into a padded room for the rest of their lives.....i live in a part of the country where nearly every one has guns and the last shooting i can think of was when my uncle got shot 7 years ago cause some kid wasnt paying attention out hunting and he got peppered with bird shot......yet i can think of 20 deaths in the last 2 years due to cars.....one of which was caused by a woman who had a heart attack while driving and struck another car and killed the driver of the other car.......yet your not claiming ppl shouldnt have cars when they are a far greater danger than guns.....nearly every home here has a gun, nearly every home has atleast one car sometimes several.....yet no ones getting shot but ppl are dieing due to cars and no one is saying we need to ban cars

    * those who are experiencing confusion, acute psychosis, or delirium as a result of taking Digoxin (or even if they are not taking it) should not drive cars.
    no chit sherlock, i and the wife have taken over the years medications that we cant drive on, i still take meds i cant drive on......yet no firearm in my house has ever been pointed at someone while i was on such drugs......if this is how your going to argue why we shouldnt have guns i have to think your on medication thats altering your mental status........

    no chit sherlock

    So the score so far is that JB disagrees with the entire quote, and rattler disagrees with only the first part of it. Anyone else disagree with the quote or either part of it?

    I just don't think rates would go down because 1) accidental gun injuries are very low, and account for very little of the cost of homeowner's insurance. The money paid into those policies mostly covers things that are much, much more likely to happen, like natural disasters, crappy craftsmanship, or fire. 2) Insurance companies....lowering rates? Lol. If removing guns did lower the policy by, idk, $5 a month, which is negligible, they would probably say there is no point in lowering prices since the decrease is barely noticeable, and most importantly (for them), people are already used to paying the original price.

    A pit bull would make your insurance go up more than a gun, but like I always say, it's not the dog, it's the owner. Same thing with guns. If you're a psychopath, you might kill someone....guns don't go around killing people on their own. However, if you're a psychopath and dead set (no pun intended) on killing someone, you're going to do it with whatever you can get your hands on, be it a gun, a knife, a pencil, a screwdriver, a hammer, etc. Or yes, even a car. However, I think you agree it would be absolutely ridiculous to ban all of those things just because they can be used to kill someone. Lots of serial killers don't even use guns.

    I don't think anyone experiencing acute psychosis should be doing anything but sitting in a padded room. I have to disagree that people try to avoid danger though. Not only is there the whole "extreme sports" thing that it seems like everyone is into, but most people's attitude on dangerous things is, "hey, this might kill me...then again maybe not". If people tried to avoid putting themselves in dangerous situations, no one would ever drive anywhere.

    Which part of the quote do you disagree with?

    (A) individuals should try to avoid disasters, especially when those disasters may involve innocent people being injured or killed.

    (B) those who are experiencing confusion, acute psychosis, or delirium as a result of taking Digoxin (or even if they are not taking it) should not drive cars.

    Or do you disagree with both parts?

    Update: JB disagrees with (A) and (B). Rattler and phissionkorps disagree with (A).
