Democrat Congresswoman Says Making Gang Members Buy Gun Insurance Will Stop Shootings

If insurance is so great at stopping bad things from happening, can we get politician insurance?

If insurance is so great at stopping bad things from happening, can we get politician insurance?

For a mere $5.95 a month, you too can be insured against the risk of electing morons whose only two functions in life are stealing money and trying to run your life.

So now the anti-2nd amendment trolls have a great new idea. Stop shootings with gun insurance. It's a plan so stupid it can only come from a career Democrat.

House Democrat Rep. Carolyn Maloney (N.Y.) has introduced a bill that would require gun owners to carry liability insurance.

The Firearm Risk Protection Act, unveiled Friday, would require gun buyers to have liability insurance coverage before being allowed to purchase a weapon, and would impose a fine of $10,000 if an owner is found not to have it.

“We require insurance to own a car, but no such requirement exists for guns," Maloney said in a statement. "The results are clear: car fatalities have declined by 25 percent in the last decade, but gun fatalities continue to rise.”

So Maloney's theory is that the gang members, who are responsible for most of the shootings, will have to buy gun insurance before they shoot someone?

Of course their guns are usually illegal anyway because they're operating in blue states and/or blue cities. So this plan makes about as much sense as complaining that rioters burning down businesses need jobs.

Instead this is yet another bout of trolling and petty harassment aimed at gun owners by a frustrated left irritated because it hasn't been able to get its own way in its long battle with the Bill of Rights.
