This is similar to how the auto insurance is setup, if you own a vehical, you have to have some type of insurance or face a stiff fine, may have license revoked and/or goto jail.
Just my thoughts.
It's FORCING people to buy a product. Completely different from auto insurance. If I don't own a car, I don't have to buy auto insurance. The auto insurance I have to buy protects the OTHER driver, not me. If I smash into someone and my car gets totaled and I've only got the legally mandated insurance, I'm up a creek.
This is making stupidity illegal which makes no sense at all.
