New York House Representative Carolyn Maloney has introduced a new bill that would force gun owners to have liability insurance or face fines of up to $10,000.

According to Maloney, the stipulations in ‘The Firearms Risk Protection Act‘ would curb gun violence, much like car insurance has lowered vehicle fatalities because gun owners would be more careful.

The Hill reported:

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. Service members and law enforcement officers, however, would be exempt from the requirement.

“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.”

Maloney said auto insurance carriers incentivize drivers to take precautions to reduce accidents, but no such incentives exist for firearm owners.

“An insurance requirement would allow the free market to encourage cautious behavior and help save lives,” she said. “Adequate liability coverage would also ensure that the victims of gun violence are fairly compensated when crimes or accidents occur.”

This is the second time Maloney, who is one of the biggest gun control advocates in Congress, has introduced the legislation. A few weeks ago she reintroduced legislation that would require sellers to obtain a background check for all guns sold at gun shows.

The Gun Show Loophole Closing Act, long championed by former Rep. Carolyn McCarthy (D-N.Y.), would subject anyone selling or transferring a gun to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System and require that transfers be reported to the attorney general.

Anti-gun politicians will go to any length to supplant the U.S. Constitution. They will use any excuse and take every opportunity – including but not limited to restrictions on popular ammunition and all out import bans on guns – in their effort to disarm the American people.

To date, all emphasis has been on disarming responsible gun owners. I want to know what steps they are taking to disarm criminals. Better yet, let’s go after the people in our own government responsible for gun-running; Fast & Furious.

  1. How much INSURANCE do the criminals that commit GUN VIOLENCE CRIMES have to have? You could base the required coverage amount of the LIABILITY insurance on the occupation and or hobbies of the owner; for example If you are a member of the Crips, the Bloods, Hells Angels, Mafia or other known criminally driven group or a Serial Killer or DRUG dealer OR just like to randomly kill people a 100 Million dollar Liability Policy IS REQUIRED, failure to have the required Insurance when the crime is committed constitutes THE AUTOMATIC DEATH PENALTY for not having the Insurance. I could really get behind a LAW like this!

    • Problem being, criminals do not purchase guns the same way law abiding citizens do, they purchase them in back alleys. There are so many things wrong with this scenario it boggles the mind. The Obama administration bases a lot of their ‘keep America safe’ agenda on false flag shootings by people who were on psychotropics which are pushed on the public by big pharmaceutical companies. The ‘agenda’ is to take guns away from American citizens.

      • You are correct, Lauren Richardson. And why should we not take guns away from American citizens who are on psychotropics or who are not law abiding? Rights ALWAYS have responsibilities.

  2. The right to drive a car is not guaranteed by the Constitution. The right to keep and bear arms is.

    Period. If the liberals think they have the votes to do it, they should amend the Constitution.

    I doubt they’d ever have the votes to do it.

  3. If they force this what’s going to happen is that a lot of people are suddenly going to “lose” their guns. Whoops, they sunk in my boat.

    • A boat that has no name nor do i recollect where it sunk, now how much i paid or even if i ever had a boat…i now am pleading the fifth.

  4. You STUPID IDIOTS… Gun violence is up because of the CRIMINALS ABLE TO BUY ON THE BLACK MARKET AND NOT HAVE TO REGISTER SUCH WEAPONS! WHY IN THE HELL DO THE LAW ABIDING HARD WORKING CITIZENS OF THIS COUNTRY SHOULD PAY SUCH AN INSURANCE FEE? DO THE CRIMINALS WITH THE UNREGISTERED WEAPONS HAVE TO HAVE THIS INSURANCE FOR THE NUMBER OF INNOCENT LIVES THEY PLAN TO TAKE JUST TO SUPPORT THEIR DRUG AND CRIMINAL HABITS NOT TO MENTION THEIR WILLINGNESS TO JOIN ON-LINE TERRORIST GROUPS JUST TO FIT IN AND HAVE A CAUSE? I THINK AMERICANS SHOULD AND WILL NOT PUT UP WITH SUCH A DUMB STUPID LAW! STAND UP FOR YOUR RIGHTS AMERICA IT HAS BEEN A WELL KNOW FACT THAT STATES WHO ALLOW THE CONCEALED WEAPONS LAW HAVE A LOWER RATE OF HOMICIDES AND CRIMES DUE TO BEING ABLE TO PROTECT THEMSELVES AND THEIR FAMILIES AND THE CRIMINALS THINK TWICE ABOUT HOME INVASIONS AND CAR JACKING AND SUCH WHICH BRINGS THE CRIME RATE DOWN AND MAKES FOR SAFER COMMUNITIES TO WORK AND LIVE IN.
