There are crazy people on all sides. Crazy doesn't have a party, it just pretends to.

The mayor thinks this will “reduce the harms of firearms”, Lol.

Having car insurance doesn’t reduce less accidents, if anything, it makes more people more reckless.

I sure hope my family would sue the **** out of anyone who killed me accidentally or purposely. And I'd sure as hell hire the best atty to sue if I have any injury from someone's gun - or stolen gun that they failed to keep secure.

If I owned a gun and carried, I'd definitely have an umbrella liability policy "just in case" it was stolen, accidentally discharged, etc.
How many of those 30k are suicides?

You have a greater chance of dying in a car wreck on the way to a "ban guns" rally than being shot by a huge margin.

Just ask Harry Wittington about that

My guns are already insured and it's none of their business what type, how many or for how much.

Actually, we like to see liberals go crazy over 2A, while we conservatives continue to carry the ball for the constitution in its entirety.

And that mandatory insurance might be new to YOU, but its not new among the gun-grabber organizations. The Brady Bunch has been pushing it for YEARS. Their reasoning: Like draconian ammo taxes/annual gun taxes/ purchase limits, etc., if you can't lick 'em, make it as onerous as possible for people, other than the rich (and criminals, of course), to own firearms.

Nothing new here.

San Jose and other places like it should be required to maintain sanctuary city liability insurance.

*shrug* the guy is making an empty virtue signal to his constituency which is frankly insulting.

If I were actually looking for a solution, I would be angry with the guy for wasting everyones time with an unconstitutional proposal that is completely meaningless and will just end up costing the city 1 million or so in legal fees after the ACLU steps in. (assuming he even follows through, in which case, he's throwing hot air)

If he were serious about the topic he could instead seek ways within the control of the city to try to avert such problems by tackling things that can be changed like expanded mental health care or increased policing cracking down on straw sales or gangs.

Anyone upset by the proposal go back to sleep, this one isn't going anywhere.

Anyone thinking this proposal will help fight the problem, well you've been had and need to ask yourself why the guy is BS'ing you and why you didn't spot it in the first place.

33,000....yeah, i'm thinking your numbers are a bit off there.
And what will the insurance do to help reduce people killing others ?
