    Six States Plotting Insurance Attack on Gun Owners

    Just when you thought things couldn't get more bizarre with the anti-gunners...

    6 States Plotting Insurance Attacks on Gun Owners | Wall St. Cheat Sheet

    A new spark of gun-control proposals has been springing up across the country since January, and the District of Columbia looks like it’s next in line. The D.C. council is working to discourage gun ownership as it attempts to implement a bill that would require potential gun owners to buy liability insurance. Under proposed rules, without a policy of at least $250,000, D.C. would not consider applications for the registration of a firearm. Should the bill pass the full council, it will be the first jurisdiction in the country to require gun owners to carry insurance.
    Anyone care to hazard a guess what states they might be?

    I'll make it easy for you.

    Massachusetts
    Connecticut
    Maryland
    New York
    California
    Pennsylvania

    Read the article. Take your blood pressure medicine first.

    Some of these may not see the light of day this time around but now that the seed has been planted, you can rest assured that the idea wont go away. The anti's conspire both day and night to take away your right to bear arms. If they cant do it legally, they'll try to price it out of existence one way or the other.

    Why don't we charge high felon-insurance rates to felons, eh? How 'bout that?

    And why don't we hold those who actually commit felonious harms to others feloniously liable to the full extent of the law?

    Seems to me we'd then be providing the proper incentives to both felons and citizens: screw up and harm others, and you get held accountable for it fully; screw up and fail to protect yourself, you pay the ultimate price. Nice, neat and simple.

    Doesn't surprise me these leftist states are charging for the right to bear arms. Sad, that Massachusetts used to be one of the stalwart bulwarks of liberty, too, back when. Heck, had they not been so anti-tyranny from the outset, we probably would not have so roundly defeated the British in the Revolutionary War. What a difference a few days make ... It's embarrassing, how far we've allowed some to fall, how far we've allowed some hirelings to take their Constitutional hatred for liberty, against us.

    So did most of the citizens, then.

    We must remind them, and each other, of this crucial point. And we must drum the vultures out of hired service, and scare the bejeezus out of every other living, breathing would-be vampire that dares come within 1000yds of a ballot to serve the People under sworn oath and commitment to that Constitution. Until that happens, we'll just keep breeding one generation after another of these elitist types who believe controlling the people as serfs is the road to nirvana.

    Once criminals are required to carry insurance I might consider buying it, until then I have a suggestion of what they can do with those bills and use both hands if necessary.

    Ask yourself this; If YOU were CEO of an insurance company, would you want MORE States to pass these laws? I think the answer is obviously "Yes".

    All we need are the insurance companies telling their minions in the legislature to pass these laws everywhere.

    Why does the list of states involved not surprise me? That a couple more NE states arent on that list does though.

    I remember hearing that this was coming. I forget where I heard it. I'm not surprised at all. Now that it is clear that the legislative path won't be a cakewalk, they are turning to insurance companies, who will jump at the chance to destroy individual rights, as long as they can make a buck along the way.

    If it were actually about money, about coddling the insurance companies, then by all means the liberty-haters would be going after the vastly greatest percentage of harmful folks out there, as a potential rate-paying citizenry: felons. Given the damage caused, felons cause far more than suicides, accident/negligence. Of all people who have arms, it's the people who use them in upstanding ways that have nothing to do with the damage caused by these other groups. And even suicides aren't inflicting material damages on other people, only themselves (and grief of their families, perhaps).

    But then, perhaps it is about money. 'Cause if the numbers widely suggested are true, between many hundreds of thousand to millions of instances of arms usage (at least display) are done each year, year after year. "Taxing" everyone in such ways is yet another revenue source, another potential bottomless pit, a source of kick-backs and campaign contributions for the "elite" (aka, liberty-haters) who are pushing such things.

    Hm. I wonder which it is ...?

    There's a problem with the thought that if it were about money they'd go after felons. Felons don't have money. Tell them they have to buy insurance on anything and they'll laugh. They couldn't pay the premium if they wanted to- and breaking the law isn't a big deal to them.

    I'd like to say this is being pushed by insurance companies, but this is just another anti-gun ploy. In reality insurance CEO's are probably torn. They can see millions of new policies being written. But if every gun owner has insurance every use of a firearm, no matter how justified, would result in a claim. Juries, knowing the gun owner was insured get the lottery syndrome and ridiculous judgments are awarded. It could end up being a wash to them- without attempting the math I'm not sure, but for the insurance companies the profit may not be what you'd first imagine. (Now for an insurance salesman the profit would be huge.)
