Conservative guns-in-schools plan runs afoul of the insurance industry

There is something both odd and slightly satisfying in the newest roadblock facing conservative plans to put more guns in schools. Private insurance companies want no part of it:
As more schools consider arming their employees, some districts are encountering a daunting economic hurdle: insurance carriers threatening to raise their premiums or revoke coverage entirely.[ ]
[A]lready, EMC Insurance Companies, the liability insurance provider for about 90 percent of Kansas school districts, has sent a letter to its agents saying that schools permitting employees to carry concealed handguns would be declined coverage.
We are making this underwriting decision simply to protect the financial security of our company, the letter said.
We've already seen a significant blow dealt to the death penalty by pharmaceutical corporations that don't want their branded products associated with killing people. Now the private insurance industry is balking at conservative notions of putting guns in schools because they're not buying the conservative line that arming teachers or other employees will make the buildings safer places to be in. On the contrary, the insurance companies are estimating that it would cost them considerably more money in payouts, enough money that they'd rather drop policies entirely than try to insure that mess.

At least teabag NRA members aren't as retarded as you.
