New Bill Requires $1 Million In Liability Insurance To Own A Gun

Gun Control via liability insurance.

You'll need at least $1 million in coverage to own a gun in New York.


A bill was introduced in the State Assembly by Felix Ortiz (D-Brooklyn) that would require citizens of New York to acquire liability insurance as a condition of gun ownership.  Bill S2353 will require all gun owners in NY to obtain and "continuously maintain" insurance coverage of at least $1 million, or they will suffer "immediate revocation of such owner's registration, license and any other privilege to own" a firearm.

If the citizen fails to obtain the insurance, then by simply owning the firearm, they will be in violation of the law.  It is estimated that the required $1 million liability policy would cost $2,000 annually.

If the bill is passed, gun owners will have 30 days to get the insurance.



This is outstanding.  Don't skip this clip:

Let's see. JP Morgan helps Corzine literally steal farmers hard earned money, loses billions in the whale trade, and helps to create a housing bubble in which they helped themselves to billions and billions of unwanted money because, you know, they just wanted to get along to go along so as to not look untoward. These guys are the captains of corporate kleptocratic cuntlery. How dare they suggest that somehow they are in someway moral. Dicks.

I'm NOT a gun-owner, and I want this law "repealed," too.
Meanwhile, since it is unconstitutional on its face, it is null and void, and therefore one has no legal duty to obey it, whatsoever. (Marbury v Madison, 1803)

It is stated very clearly. "SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED." It does not say, shall not be infringed except on military arms, shall not bi infringed except in school and other public buildings including "gun free zones", shall not be infringed as long as your have 1mill in liability insurance. All laws regarding fireams are null and void.

I am sure the criminals are lining up already to get their policies.

They cannot impose fees of any kind to use a constitutional right (it's a right not a privilege) also they cannot make law thats repugnant to United States Constitution and that being fact the law is not law, but is null and void, the rules have been set in place long ago and these elected officials are in contempt, not only of the states constitution, but also the United States Constitution. They took the Oath and signed the affidavits to that fact and are in violation of the laws and supreme law of the land. They must steep down or be removed under the laws.

Constitutional Law trumps all other laws...period.
So, if people pay attention to these "other" laws, you lose your Rights.
If people adhere to Constitutional Law...you have Rights.
Ho human can trump Constitutional Law.

You also have to quit electing politicians that want to ignore Constitutional Law! Duh!
Start impeachment, recall, and whatever else you call it, proceedings to remove these politicians.
Remove them the problems goes away.

Easy concept, really works!

My state requires that I carry 1 Million Liability Insurance to install floor tile in peoples homes. It costs a few hundred dollars a year. Hasn't been an issue and I don't consider it an infringment. Hey DRUTCH, does the 2nd include nuclear arms, biological arms, chemical arms?

They will not follow any law, but, right now criminals can walk into a gun show and buy whatever they want. Repeat, right now, this moment, criminals who plan to harm you and me are legally buying crap loads of guns at gun shows. What do we do about that? Nothing? Criminals 1, American Citizens 0.

Hey Dave you must not go to many gun shows. They also run background checks in most states and the states that don't do not have the same gun violence as the states that have strict gun control. Look at Chicago where the laws are the strictest and they have way more violence than a state like Arizona.

yeah, well there is about as much chance of me complying with that as me paying income tax

Isn't it just another form of gun registration? They would have a record of who you are and what guns you own, making it so much easier to confiscate. And now you'd have to pay to register.

What will NY do to gang bangers who get caught with an illegal weapon? Nothing as usual? That's my bet.
Feb 27, 2013 at 2:33 PM | Unregistered Commenterhypocrisy
This is what happens if you bow down and register your guns. They know you have them and start adding more and more laws and infringements until you are not able to keep guns. Registration IS confiscation!
Do not comply with these illegal laws!

Unfortunately the NY state representative has voided the bill by legal means from the get go. He claims in the bill that this pertains to any privilege to own a firearm, there currently are no any privileges prescribed under NYS law for anyome to own a firearm but instead it is a right guaranteed by the NYS Constitution

"They will not follow any law, but, right now criminals can walk into a gun show and buy whatever they want."

Sorry but...they actually don't. Go to gun shows all the time myself, the most lay abiding places on the planet. These
"gun show" laws are only to disarm the law abiding. The criminal class steals their guns or buys on the street corners.

This means that poor people don't have Second Admendment Rights.When are they going to require $1 million liability insurance policy in order to practice your First Admendment Rights,just in case someone is harmed.

Perhaps one could find a firearm located on the street corner of your own small town, like mine, through a federally funded gun runner who has purchased said gun from the money he laundered right down the street at the local branch of BofA. You would need cash, of course, and I would be certain that you would not need a backround check.

Obama is a j@ck A55. Same with Bloomberg and I hope someone smuggles a large coke into New York and shoves it up bloombers @ss.

Hey DJ...
Only six states (CA, CO, IL, NY, OR, RI) require universal background checks on all firearm sales at gun shows. Three more states (CT, MD, PA) require background checks on all handgun sales made at gun shows. Seven other states (HI, IA, MA, MI, NJ, NC, NE) require purchasers to obtain a permit and undergo a background check before buying a handgun. Florida allows its counties to regulate gun shows by requiring background checks on all firearms purchases at these events. 33 states have taken no action whatsoever to close the Gun Show Loophole.

All those that live in the USA and do not want guns near their children, come and live in peace in Europe.

Those that want to keep their guns, stay in the USA.

We in Europe can tell you something else: it's very despairing, watching you all kill each other.
