No Ohio push for gun insurance

Calif. proposal would require coverage

March 4, 2013

Drivers must carry liability insurance on their vehicles, so why not require similar coverage for gun owners? That’s apparently the thought behind a proposed California law that would force anyone......

Insurance for gun owners is nothing more than a punishment for exercising 2nd Amendment rights.

I'm glad It's not even being thought here in Ohio. I'm not for anymore laws on guns at all. People that live in states that are thinking about it should be out in numbers agains't such things .It's Just plain worng .

Absolutely, we already have plenty of laws on the books to make people responsible. The problem is, the lawyers and the courts do not hold them responsible!

Requiring insurance opens the doors for insurance companies to gouge gun owners, just like they do with mandatory auto insurance. Do you remember how much insurance cost before the "mandatory" auto insurance? I do, mine went up almost 3x.

Anytime the state requires anything, the end result is the consumer (you and me) gets screwed.

Keep your insurance and I'll keep my guns in a safe and locked condition.

This country is WAY out of control with laws. How about people being taught to be responsible and be held accountable for their actions? The lawyers of this country have enabled the public to blame someone else for their stupidity and ignorance.

I think we should have “stupid” insurance in order to insure that people are protected from themselves.

Requiring insurance just forms another list in which gun foes will use to futher enhance their agenda of removing firearms from the law abiding citizen.Secondly,cars and the required insurance are not included in the constitution as guns ARE.And finally,If you are a politician that has grown tired of being such,please identify yourselves now with this type of legislation so we can promptly vote you out of office in a timely,efficient manner.

I am not sure but what I do know is that everyone that purchases a gun should have a backround check. Everyone that works with kids and old people are required to have one why not gun purchasers?

One more way of making money has nothing to do with keeping anyone safe,it's all about the money!

3 things about this. One is, I agree with slogoin that the Constitution allows for the Right to individual arms. Driving is not a Constitutional right. It is a privilege. Second, only the lawyers will benefit from any kind of additional insurance laws as proposed. Third, the politicians would exempt themselves from any new law like this because, as they have demonstrated, even locally, politicians consider themselves above the law.

NO NEW LAWS!

Laws like this coming out of california from the cesspool of liberal nanny state meddlers who think more laws on law abiding citizens are the answer to gun crimes committed by criminals are no surprise to me.

These people are nothing but anti Constitution slimeballs who have no idea about guns other than what they've heard on the news.

Now, if authorities in california want to do something to stop gun crimes they can get their fat behinds down in these gang infested hoods and clean out the trash. That is where the problem is.

I wonder if any criminals read this article. These people who say they have no guns in their house and give their names and the town they live in could surely be prime targets for local criminals.

This sounds to me like another criminal protection zone. Good luck with that!

California and New York let out more prisoners than any other states. They have a problem and expect the entire country to follow their lead because they are derelect of their duties. We should sell California to Mexico and New York to Canada at a VERY cheap price to get rid of those losers. Besides. I already have homeowners insurance on all of my contents and extra gun insurance thru the NRA. But it is not to cover some maniac stealing them to kill with.!! It for loss only.

It is also wrong that we have to carry uninsured and underinsured motorist because others are driving without insurance or enough insurance. Insurance is a ripoff that needs some serious reform... Just like taxes and entitlements, need reform.

AND, how in the world would insurance have any affect on these crimes that were committed at Sandy Hook and Colorado or anywhere.???? NONE...It is just another knee jerk scheme to do something to punish the legal gun owners. Proves it is all a big dog and pony show for re election purposes!!! It will not change the maniacs minds when they decide to flip out!! You wanna curb gun violence?? Listen to the NRA and do what they suggest instead of all this useless crap!!

Daddy doesn't lock up his gun. Johnny has Susie over to play. Susie shoots herself in the face with the gun. Insurance invoked.

If so we need to give Workingstiff a medal for "cruel and unusual punishment" having to listen to that garbage that Oneill spews is worse than flushing the toilet and it backs up all over the bathroom floor.!!!!
