Democrats Propose $10,000 Fine For Gun Owners Who Donít Have Insurance
http://dailycaller.com/ ^ | April 2,2013 | Alex Pappas

Posted on 04/02/2013 6:54:42 AM PDT by Biggirl

A contingent of liberal Democrats in Congress is proposing a new federal gun control idea: mandatory liability insurance for gun owners.

When New York Rep. Carolyn Maloney introduced the legislation last month with eight other Democrats, she boasted that it is “the first bill to require liability insurance of gun buyers nationwide.”

Hold on. Would this apply to people who are in possession of guns during crimes? You know, would this apply to criminals?

No?

Why not?

Hey Maloney:

How about mandatory jail time for career criminals who commit armed felonies regardless of the choice of weapon, and please leave the other 85 million non-criminal gun owners the hell alone, you little Fascist runt?

Just another infringement of the Second Amendment. You shouldn’t have to buy insurance for a right.

Title 18 U.S.C. § 242 : US Code - Section 242: Deprivation of rights under color of law
Whoever, under color of any law, statute, ordinance, regulation, or custom, willfully subjects any person in any State, Territory, Commonwealth, Possession, or District to the deprivation of any rights, privileges, or immunities secured or protected by the Constitution or laws of the United States

Regulating the amount of ammunition is an INFRINGEMENT....forcing someone to by insurance for a secured Right is an INFRINGEMENT.......fining someone for NOT having said insurance is an INFRINGEMENT!

Surely there's a conservative legal foundation or lawyer somewhere that could slap these 'servants of the People' back into their place!

I’ve proposed that any agent of the government who, through execution of his job, can infringe on the liberty of a citizen,

must carry private malfeasance insurance, which cannot be paid for as part of compensation.

Minimal coverage should be affordable, but anyone who has had to pay a claim should have their rates jacked to the point where they are forced to quit.

"Others who have signed on as co-sponsors of the legislation include: Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison, D.C. Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton, Massachusetts Rep. Michael Capuano, Virginia Rep. Jim Moran, Illinois Rep. Bobby Rush, Massachusetts Rep. Nikki Tsongas, Massachusetts Rep. Stephen Lynch and Oregon Rep. Earl Blumenauer."

The "usual suspects". And 90% of legal gun owners probably have insurance anyway, through their homeowner's or renter's insurance. While closer to 0% of the illegal gun owners -- and Democrat core constituencies -- likely have insurance.

Then, they would have to pass another spending bill to subsidize the gangs and ghetto gang-bangers to be able to afford it.

What insurance company on earth would insure gun owners against gun related claims?

This would be like expecting insurance companies to provide insurance against HIV for homosexuals.

Yep, and of course they exempt the military, police, and government employees. I think we need a law that whatever gun laws apply to civilians in any locality also apply to the military, police, and all government employees.

That has no real effect on our military when they are in action overseas, but would certainly ramp down efforts by various states to limit gun rights. I am sure that if the latest legislation in New York applied to even just the police and every federal employee in the state that there is no way the New York legislature would have passed the bill.

This insurance requirement is obviously ridiculous, and would of course be particularly onerous for police officers since they are much more likely to face liability than others.

“Comment: That is one of the reasons they are in control and will remain in control.”

Don’t forget the stupid public. Liberals are in control, but an electorate that was even marginally capable of critical thought would boot the liberals out for their incompetence.

The American public accepts leftist rule because they are told it’s good. That magic thing in the living room that shows me things like American Idol and the Kardashians would never lie to me. So, leftism must be good.

We need federal legislation to criminalize attempts at federal gun control legislation. Something along the lines of:

“Attempts to regulate or infringe the right of the people to bear arms constitute a criminal offense against the United States. Representatives or senators attempting to introduce legislation that will infringe, control, regulate, or otherwise hamper the ability of citizens to bear arms are guilty of a capital felony, and the mandatory sentence shall be death. This includes adding such legislation as amendments, riders, clauses, or any other attempt that can be construed to mean infringing the right to bear arms. Presidents, executive officials, federal employees, law enforcement, or military personnel enacting regulations or executive orders that are equal to or tantamount to legislation for the purpose of infringing the right to bear arms are subject to the same penalty.”

This would have many benefits that I can see. Lautenberg, McCarthy, Feinstein, and their ilk going to the electric chair, for example.

And an amendment to the state constitution that no government employee is eligible for any government-funded bodyguard, police are barred from moonlighting as bodyguards, and no law enforcement agency may offer preferential protection to any politician or government official.

See what happens when politicians have to live under the laws they create for their own personal protection.

It could always be included as a rider in Obamacare which will, of course, be administered by the IRS. Everything evil is being put together by the Progressive/Statists.

Like North Korea, they will probably back themselves into a corner by trying to back up their wishful thinking with actions.
