A group of congressional Democrats has signed on to new legislation that would mandate liability insurance for all gun owners in the United States — and fine those who refuse to purchase it as much as $10,000.
The Daily Caller reports that New York Rep. Carolyn Maloney’s Firearm Risk Protection Act says that all gun buyers — before they buy — purchase and show proof of “a qualified liability insurance policy,” and that those caught owning a weapon without the insurance are subject to harsh fines.
Ms. Maloney says her bill would shift the cost of gun violence back onto those who own the weapon. Gun rights groups call that logic ridiculous, however.
Not sure that will fly too well in the Courts, and if it should, we can be assured our government has turned against US and the Constitution!!
How many times are the Democrats
I don't need a federal background check to buy a car now do I?
Yes it is ridiculous considering that Lanza is dead so how the hell is he going to "pay" ?
If you can make money off it(taxes) or seize power from it seems to be the status quo of the party of gun control which is nothing more than money control, and people control.
Acting like this is a Dem or Rep issue is dumb at best.
Let me ask you sir.....what have you done to make the country better
Do you live in fear??
He doesn't pay....one guy did something and now because most of you buy into this garbage,the rest of the 300 million will pay for it.

And the current administration extended the Patriot Act, gave us the NDAA, and is telling everyone "that second amendment doesn't mean what you think it means".
So the point is?
