California bill to mandate insurance
A bill introduced by Democrats in California would require gun owners to buy extra insurance. Insurance companies are all for it. Reason given is that the public shouldn't have to bear the cost of gun violence. The problem with their logic is that facts demonstrate guns in the hands of good people save lives and property from loss. More guns means less crime and more the society saves.
Therefore I propose legislation that would require anyone without a gun to pay a premium, because his disregard for his own safety encourages crime, the cost of which the public shouldn't have to bear. With the financial support of the insurance industry, I'm quite certain I will be elected in a landslide.

Ridiculous. Between Kalifornistan, NY, and Maryland, this kind of crap can only be taken for so long. It's just retarded; I can't even comprehend the mindset that these people must have to think that this is okay. All the same arguments apply; do we make people buy extra insurance if they own a knife? A tire iron? How about a hammer? Stupid, stupid, STUPID! Man this crap gets under my skin, but fast.

People's mouths cost them more than anything. Are they going to be required to buy free speech insurance?

Going try to starve us out with insurance, taxes, and fees. Anything to make it less desirable.
The police are not there to protect you from crime, they are there to arrest the guy after the crime has been committed, assuming they find him. It is your responsibility to protect yourself and your family.

I didn't even have boat loss insurance.

Yet another way to attempt to discourage people from wanting to own weapons.
Reason given is that the public shouldn't have to bear the cost of gun violence.
Now that is pure bunk. 99% of gun violence is perpetrated by the criminal element who sure will not be buying insurance. 99.99% of law abiding citizens do not commit "gun violence".

I doubt any of the liberty-haters can answer how forcing citizens who are known to own firearms to obtain insurance coverage will reduce crime committed by other people who are not known to have firearms.
Sounds like a scheme to deepen the pockets that victims and attorneys can dip into, in this land of deep-pockets lawsuits. Paid for on the backs of upstanding citizens who aren't the ones committing crimes in the first place.
