San Jose Requires Gun Owners To Have Liability Insurance & Pay Annual Tax

Gun owners in the California city of San Jose will soon be required to take out liability insurance against gun injuries or accidents, if landmark legislation is given final approval.

It will be the first time anywhere in the US that people will be compelled to purchase coverage for their weapons.

The city council approved the measure on Tuesday, and the decision is expected to be ratified next month.

Some gun owners argue it would violate their Second Amendment rights.

The United States has the highest rate of gun ownership of any country, as well as a higher incidence of gun violence than any other wealthy nation.

California became the first state to ban assault weapons in 1989 after a mass shooting at an elementary school in which five children were killed.

Six other states and the District of Columbia have an assault weapons ban in place, according to the gun safety group Giffords.

San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo said that as well as the insurance, gun owners would be required to pay an annual fee. 

Funds raised from both would go towards initiatives aimed at reducing gun violence and harm, he said.

Can you still own a gun? Yes? Then it doesn't violate the "rights" given to you by some archaic and horribly outdated amendment, does it? :huntyga:

Freaking weirdos. I get having a hobby but I fear so many of these people saw gay marriage and immediately thought "maybe we can legalize human/firearm marriage?"

And all at once, you're all I want 💚

It does seem like something that the conservative Supreme Court would strike down tho
