One thought on “DC Bill on Gun Insurance B20-170 Hearing

  1. A reasonable approach to covering the cost of gun violence, estimated at over $500 annually for every person in the U.S.. Why should I have to pay for gun violence if I do not own one. Just like smoking, let the ones smoking help to cover the cost.
