With about 90% of the public in favor of the rather timid approach of extending background checks, and with the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre still fresh in our minds, Congress couldn't even get a rather timid extension of gun registration done, much less get some control over guns themselves and ammunition. So, isn't it time to throw in the towel and take a totally different approach? 

What might that be?

I read an article somewhere, suggesting that gun owners should carry some kind of liability insurance for each gun.  The thought process was that the insurance companies would maintain a database of ballistic information (in order to ascertain which gun was used in a killing) which might help the police.  I'm not a native to gun ownership, so I am really not best placed to consider the potential implications of such a system, but it is certainly a different slant, and might have potential.
