San Jose mayor proposes insurance, annual fees for gunowners after mass shooting

Two weeks after a gunman fatally shot nine coworkers at a San Jose light rail yard, Mayor Sam Liccardo is proposing safety restrictions that would require gun owners to obtain insurance and pay an annual fee to cover the cost of gun violence. ’The Second Amendment protects the right of Americans to own guns but does not require that every other taxpayer pay for that right,’ Liccardo said.

So punish the law abiding for the lawless behavior of criminals...and for exercising a fundamental right to boot? This insanity can only come out of freak show, Commiefornia.

Annual fee to exercise your constitutionally protected rights? Like the poll tax?

If you can force me to buy insurance that pays out for someone else's gun crimes, then I want you to buy insurance that pays out when other people elect Democrats.

Next we will need speech insurance and yearly fees to speak publicly. This rube can't believe that sort of nonsense is legal in the slightest.🤦🏽‍♂️

Just like a "California Stop" or "California Sober", this is "California Legislation": seems effective if you don't think about it, but will actually make the situation worse.

Next up you need to pay an annual fee for freedom of speech and have insurance that covers your freedom of speech just in case you hurt someones feelings.

There is no way that proposal would survive legal challenges.

Ah yes, make it hard for law abiding citizens with firearms to live in your area so they all leave and criminals can run rampant and you get more mass shootings.

That’s fair. But if you are going to do that, make the woke losers buy insurance that pays out every time they get their spines offended.

The word tax was too simple, we now spell it 'I N S U R A N C E' these days (or there government does). Just another scam to milk the working man or of his money. Or for the political corrected version, people out of their money.

I am no fan of guns, and I will never own one, but I still believe in second amendment rights, and this is a clear violation. It is absurd to require people to pay a fee to exercise their rights.

He had better make sure that all Law Enforcement personnel have their own insurance, as well.

If I am required to pay a fee for owning a gun, then I should have the right to carry a gun whenever I go PERIOD . That way when a nut job comes shooting I have a chance of surviving

Yes that makes sense. Its a good start even though growing the insurance companies is dangerous.

Let’s also create insurance requirements and fees for drug dealers. You know, the ones selling drugs to the politicians and movie stars. While we’re at it, let’s go ahead and do the same for people who consume alcohol. You know, the ones who drive their cars into other people while intoxicated.

They require insurance on cars because car owners have accidents. No shooter in a mass killing is having an accident. No insurance company in its right mind would pay benefits for intentional criminality. Talk about apples and oranges ...

It should just be called a tax because that’s what it is, it’s not insuring anything.
