    Thumbs down New Jersey Lawmaker Files Legislation that Will Require Gun Owners To Carry $50,000

    A New Jersey lawmaker has introduced a bill that mandates gun owners to carry a minimum of $50,000 liability insurance.[ATTACH=CONFIG]125276[/img]

    Filed on November 25th of this year by Patricia Egan Jones, A-6003 would effectively outlaw the 2nd Amendment for anyone who can’t afford the onerous insurance policy.

    The first line of the proposed legislation reads “No person shall possess a firearm unless the person has first obtained a policy of firearm liability insurance in an amount of not less than $50,000, specifically covering any damages resulting from any negligent or willful acts involving the use of that firearm while it is owned by that person.” So, basically someone could steal your gun, use it in a crime, and you’ll be held responsible.

    No they won't, because the state will ensure that no company can carry a policy that meets their requirements.
    Rules are written in the stone,
    Break the rules and you get no bones,
    all you get is ridicule, laughter,
    and a trip to the house of pain.

    How is that not semi-equivalent to a poll tax?

    Probably no such policy will ever be written and, if written and sold, will never have a claim paid. Liability insurance is not applicable for deliberate acts. Fire claims where evidence of arson is present are not approved. To escape a criminal charge and a civil claim for damages in a shooting case, you would have to convince a jury that you had good reason to shoot the bad guy and convince a civil jury that the shooting was not intentional. That is a very unlikely combination. Requiring such a policy is like banning all but biometricly personalized guns before any are on the market. You effectively ban them all which is the point of course.

    And get this. I'm pretty sure it was NJ that outlawed liability insurance for gun owners a number of months ago - so effectively, it is a catch 22. ....you're forced to get insurance that is illegal to have in the state = no gun ownership allowed.

    Patricia Egan Jones (let me guess...a democrat? Think?) thinks she is being clever, relying on no insurance company is going to insure against a willful harmful act.
    Legislating to prevent people's acts is fantasy

    You mean another potential law I won't even pay lip service to?
