” A group of congressional Democrats has signed on to new legislation that would mandate liability insurance for all gun owners in the United States — and fine those who refuse to purchase it as much as $10,000.
The Daily Caller reports that New York Rep. Carolyn Maloney’s Firearm Risk Protection Act says that all gun buyers — before they buy — purchase and show proof of “a qualified liability insurance policy,” and that those caught owning a weapon without the insurance are subject to harsh fines.”
New York State senator Felix Ortiz started this madness . Yet another burden on law-abiding gun owners that will have exactly zero impact on the thugs that commit the crimes , given that the criminals , by very definition DON’T obey the law .
Of course the most immediate effect of this proposed law would be to make it prohibitively expensive for the poor , many of whom reside in the highest crime areas , to purchase a gun and protect themselves . Way to look out for the less fortunate , party of ” the people ” .
