D.C. Considers Mandatory $250K Insurance Policy for Gun Buyers
#1
Quote:WASHINGTON (CBSDC/AP) — The D.C. Council is considering requiring people to purchase liability insurance before they can get a license to own a gun.

The bill would mandate that prospective gun owners maintain at least a $250,000 policy. The policy would cover damages from negligent acts or intentional acts that aren’t undertaken in self-defense.

It's the "BILL OF RIGHTS" not the bill of "needs"

And then when insurance companies decide they don't want to cover gun owners....basically, you're screwed, without the government actually coming out and banning gun ownership.
Error 396: Signature cannot be found.

And I am assuming, like Obamacare, you will be provided with insurance at taxpayer expense if you cannot afford it, and fined if you refuse.

Sounds unconstitutional. Just like a poll tax. You cannot charge someone to exercise a basic right.

Constitution says "keep and bear". It doesn't say anything about "acquiring new" or "stockpiling more". Anyone who has zero guns today can "keep and bear" exactly that many and there would be nothing unconstitutional about that ... I guess ... if I understand the liberals correctly.

If it turns into a by-proxy total ban than that also violates the Heller decision then this law can be easily tossed out.

If it passes DC City Council.
