Dems Want Law Abiding Gun Owners to Buy Liability Insurance to Pay for Gun Crimes

Is it Constitutional to require Americans to buy insurance in order to exercise a Constitutional right?
I don’t think so, yet, Democrats in six state want you to pay for your right to own guns.

Democrats in six states are determined to make gun ownership in their states so complicated and so expensive, no one will be able to afford it.
Democratic lawmakers proposed legislation that would require California gun owners to buy liability insurance to cover damages or injuries caused by their weapons.

Similar bills have been introduced in other states after the Newtown, Conn., school massacre. They include Connecticut, Maryland, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania and New York.
Some proposals would require buyers to show proof of insurance before they could purchase a weapon. The proposal in California would apply to anyone owning a weapon, Ting said, though the bill’s details are still being worked out.

The idea has been equated to requiring vehicle owners to buy auto insurance with the expectation that it would encourage gun owners to take firearms safety classes and keep their guns locked up to get lower insurance rates.

No state has enacted the requirement despite repeated previous attempts, said Jon Griffin, a policy analyst with the National Conference of State Legislatures.

    A real American president would never let this go without major opposition!
    But then what can we expect from a Kenyan Born, Anti-AMERICAN, Anti-Constitution, muslim who hates this country and the principles on which it was founded? (This opinion formed by watching his own words and actions)

    • Amen, I agree.

      Tex that is not an opinion it is an absolute fact my neighbor!

    • Calcat36

      Isn’t this the same thing as a “poll tax” that racist democrats instituted to prevent southern blacks from voting? I have an idea! Lets DEMAND that POLITICIANS get economy insurance, so that when they bankrupt the Nation, we can sue the moonbat crap out of them!

  • junkmailbin

    there is a large difference between the NRA offering insurance if you want to but it and The state of California or any other state requiring you to by it. Spending my money so I can have a gun if INFRINGING upon my right to have a gun.. What part of shall not do these arses do not understand. Most likely they have trouble with what part of Illegal do they not understand when used with ALIEN

    • bluejacket

      The communist East Germany put up a wall to keep their subjects in. If you live California, you better leave while you still can.

  • jenniewalsh

    The Satanic insurance racketeers and bureaucrats never miss an opportunity to fleece whoever, whenever and however.

  • Insurance companies at it again to make more money and make us poor. Lets see we have to have insurance for cars, health, and now guns. What’s next?

      You must be talking in the movie?! Stallone has come out in support of gun control yesterday and has made a complete ass of himself!!!”!!

  • Lowell

    How do you like those Democrats you voted in now. It will get better, just give them a little more time.

    • Huapakechi

      Yeah, give ’em time. Two years in isolation.

  • NO. You cannot force anyone to buy insurance.

    • violater1

      Someone needs to teach them how to read! Hey fools what part of no do you not understand!!!! Go back to hell with your evil demons that reside within you!!!!!!

    • bluejacket.

      Everytime we the people try to vote them out, they seem to win by 120% of the vote. I believe we’ve lost the Republic.

  • Men have already fought and died for our rights in the Bill of Rights. We don’t have to buy anything for the right to own a gun, or guns.

  • violater1

    Since the majority of the shootings were all Dumbass Dems commiting the crimes then you lazy basterd Democrats get a job and you pay the insurance freight and start paying the mental health insurance rate for all of you to get treatment for the newly pronounced mental illness called Liberalism it is akin to paranoia per psychiatrist journal!LYOU ARE ALL MORONS PROGRESSING TO SKITZAPHRENIA! SKITZOIDS ISNT IT IRONIC!

  • Terry C

    Why should I buy insurance to cover the cost of a crime that was committed by someone else. I did not commit the crime and since I did not, I cannot be held responsible for the crime or the end result of the crime. I am a law abiding citizen of the US, I have a concealed carry permit and have carried a firearm for approx. 38 years. And the only time that weapon spoke was on the range. I support the Constitution and the Amendments that are part of it. The 2nd Amendment gives me the right to own a firearm and states that Congress shall not make any laws that interfer with that right.

    • How about making the gang bangers and crooks buy this gun liability insurance. Even make Obama buy some.

      • TexRancher

        Because Obama cannot pass a background check to buy a gun. Remember, his birth certificate is FALSE, selective service card is FALSE, his SSN belongs to a guy born in 1890, and it was rejected by E-VERIFY!

  • amandaleane

    maybe a law should be passed that will fine every politician $250,000.00 for each and every lie, twist of facts, or partial answer that comes across their lips? Add another $250,000.00 for every question asked not answered or attempt to dance around. Time to put political correctness to bed..of course, we could double that for those communist democrats,,,

    • Huapakechi

      I like the “Three strikes and hang ’em” policy myself.

  • foodbandid

    This is a ploy to get the serial numbers and list of who has guns. It will go into a data base, and one day, the govt. will be breaking down your door to confiscate those weapons.

  • The criminals aren’t going to admit that they even have guns, much less buy liability insurance. And the government can’t force citizens to buy it.

    • bluejacket.

      Can they force you to buy health insurance?

  • fedfreakinup

    This is some of the dumbest sheet I have ever heard. One it is unconstitutional. Two why would anyone be made to pay for crimes some else committed? Three if I have gun insurance and I commit a crime with my gun I think it is a safe bet that my insurance wont pay. Liberal freakin morons

  • BigUgly666

    Forcing someone to have car insurance is just a “UNCONSTITUTIONAL” as having to have “firearms” insurance.
    Until you have done something wrong and harmed someone, you have not done something wrong and no crime has been committed because in order for a “crime” to have been committed, THERE MUST BE AN INJURED PARTY.

  • !: It is just another attempt to control guns.
    2″ it is just another attempt to control law abiding gun owners.
    3: It is just another attempt by Democrats and Liberals to produce more revenue for them to spend.
    4: It is just another attempt by Democrats and Liberals to “pay off” their Insurance Campaign donors.

    • bluejacket.

      I think you’re close to being on to something. How about it is really a back door attempt at registration, to get the names and addresses of legal gun owners.

  • Fred_K

    If you can not do the time, do not do the crime. The perps should be put at hard labor to pay their debt to society, not the law abiding memebers of society.

    • Huapakechi

      Those that live.

  • Huapakechi

    Smells a lot like a de facto registration scheme.

    • bluejacket.

      Exactly right.

  • Rustytruck

    Yeah well the idiot Dems might be facing one of their own types of persecution. There’s a politician in Vermont who is talking about a proposal to make non-gun owners pay out a $500 fee annually for not owning a gun and relying solely on police and Military for protection. If they refuse to pitch in and not stand with the rest of us when needed, then it’s only fair for them to pay out. I read that and thought , Now there’s a great idea, I’d bet that would shut them up or at least stir up a hornet’s nest, Hah!! If you guys want to see the article, let me know here and I’ll post it for all to read.

  • Terry G

    Why don’t they require criminals to buy liability insurance to cover their crimes? Bunch of idiots!

  • Doc

    Democrats are the ones who support criminals so I say we tax democrats to pay for the damage they cause.

  • wdcraftr

    We should make All Politicians pay liability insurance for all the monies spent over and above their budgets, also for all Americans killed by govt personnel/drones without a warrant, and not in self defense…

    • bluejacket.

      We can’t make politicians do anything, let alone represent us. Heck, they just gave themselves a raise, and now are back to destroying our rights.

  • TexRancher

    This is nothing more than a backdoor registration of guns and owners to be followed by confiscation if history is any example….

  • GB.

    If we gun owners have to carry liability insurance to pay for gun deaths, Then all automobile companies will have do the same. And the President will have to carry it to pay for his deaths.And all farmers will have to do it also. You can not show favoritism. This could get clear out hand.

  • Real American

    Typical liberal who bitched about anything Bush did and said Bush is invading their privacy, but when the commie muzzie halfbreed wants to do something , the kiss his ass!!What a bunch of pukes you libtards are!!

  • Dodie1990

    The real reason is the data base which will make it easy top confiscate your weapons when they wish. This confiscation will hapen without a whimper because no one is willing to stand up and protest. There is not onep olitician, Republican or Democrat who will stand up to protect the 2nd amendment. And Holder will go around Congress and use an executive order for the registry and confiscation.

  • Then of course we should demand that all teachers, politicians and the like buy insurance for the simple fact that the vast majority of the kids are killing have been on medication that has been forwarded by the same people that want to pass this absurdity.

  • Liberals have serious mental problems

  • TexRancher

    Another sneaky attempt at universal gun registration!

  • Sounds like insurance for rock climbing gear, football gear, baseball gear, alcohol purchases, tobacco purchases, sugar purchases, excess carbohydrate purchases, sausage purchases…in short a Value added tax on merchandise found to be disfavorable to the ruling majority. If it isn’t kosher its taxed.
