Skip to comments.Democrats Propose $10,000 Fine For Gun Owners Who Donít Have Insurance
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.

They never give up. And they have the public right where they want them... dumb as a door knob.
Obamanation Counterculture File.
Or, a $10,000 fine for any illegal alien without $250,000 personal injury, life, fire or casualty insurance..
and yet low information voters keep voting for free stuff:
“Obama gonna pay my mortgage!!!!”
is all they hear.
Maloney is selling snake oil insurance.
second amendment is a fundamental right.
do journalists have malpractice insurance?
do politicians have temptation insurance?
How about a $10,000 fine for politicians who don’t read the Constitution?
Double for those second generation?
You know, of course, that anything introduced by that whacko Carolyn Maloney is going nowhere.
Quadruple for third generation? And $10,000.00 for each child born out of wedlock.
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?
The demonrats are comprised of 85% laywers. Insurance is another mechanism for the effin leeches (lawyers) to make their billions of dollars. ‘Nuff said.
Just another infringement of the Second Amendment. You shouldn’t have to buy insurance for a right.
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!
How about a $10,000 penalty for moronic thinking ?
Yup..that’s gonna work...Studies have long shown that in the Bronx...at least 40% of ALL drivers are uninsured..
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.
Or a $10,000 fine for anyone caught being a dhimmicrat in public (or private for that matter)?
Are all the felons going to line up to get this insurance?
Sure they are! S/
How about a $10,000 fine for politicians who dont read the Constitution?
....or vote for legislation that they have not read.
Which other of my rights under the Bill Of Rights must I now take out insurance for?
Wonder what would happen if the Democrats introduced a bill that nobody could be released from prison unless they purchased a $10,000 liability policy?
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.
We need an “Eagle Eye” event !
Then, they would have to pass another spending bill to subsidize the gangs and ghetto gang-bangers to be able to afford it.
[Wish it were /s, but it probably is more real than we care to know. Imagine: Get your gun insurance when you get your welfare or food stamps card.]
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.
Stuff it, tyrant Maloney, I do not serve you and I’m never going to.
Need insurance against stupid sob’s that make more insane laws.
There is no insane idea these idiots cannot come up with. It never ends.
Comment: That is one of the reasons they are in control and will remain in control.
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.
good luck collecting nimrods
Or $1,000,000 fine for politicians who don't read the legislation they vote on (and I'm not talking about the 2 page summary that means nothing).
“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.
Yep, punishing the little guy and keeping the poor man down. After all only the rich should be able to defend themselves because their lives are worth so much more than yours.
Never interrupt your enemy when he is making a mistake.
Well, there isn’t any gun liability insurance to purchase that I know of.
A $10K fine for not purchasing a policy that doesn’t exist.
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.
Look for more folks to hide their guns.
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.
A $10K fine for not purchasing a policy that doesnt exist.
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.
Why? So you can get them out when the gun grabbers have gone away after realizing that they were wrong? </sarc>
They are hellbent on triggering (no pun intended) the rebellion. Only a liberal would start a war with people they KNOW are armed when they are not armed themselves.
You got it.
