San Jose mayor proposes 1st-in-nation insurance requirement for gun owners
 
http://www.ktvu.com/news/san-jose-ma...for-gun-owners

"Under Sam Liccardo's proposal, the insurance would include coverage for any accidental discharge of the gun and for the intentional acts of any third parties who steal, borrow, or otherwise acquire the gun. The insurance won't cover the liability of the policyholder for his or her own intentional conduct.

"Separately, Liccardo said that his staff will also explore if voters would want to put a measure on the ballot that would impose a tax on all ammunition and firearm purchases in the San Jose."

What a d**k more taxes for gun owners, Sounds about right.

Sousuke 08-12-2019 12:25 PM

Two things jump out me.

1. Didnít the state recently try to ban firearm liability insurance?

2. There is no insurance policy out there that covers illegal actions that Iím aware of. The mayor states that people have auto insurance...ok but if your car is stolen and then itís rammed in to another car, neither you or your insurance pay out liabilities

holdfast 08-12-2019 1:31 PM

This does not sound like self defense insurance at all, which is what the idiots have been proposing (edit: proposing to "disallow" is what I meant).

Attempting to burden the exercise of a Constitutional right and another incubation for failure to maintain a legislated edict as grounds for confiscation. We've all read the cookbook and any reasonable person can taste the contempt a mile away. As for the argument that "the cost of city police and emergency services required to address gun violence should be paid by gun owners, not all taxpayers" surely Mr. Liccardo is aware that property taxes pay for public safety regardless of gun ownership or not.

Jwalt 08-12-2019 2:27 PM

These are people willfully and knowingly trying to thwart the Constitution, thinking they're cute.

No nation on Earth requires gun owners to have liability insurance. None. Not Japan, not the UK.

There is no other item - none - which they think you should have to insure against the actions of a thief.

Lastly, there is nothing you have to insure merely because you own it. Yes, you need insurance to operate your vehicle on public roads, but not to get a Non-Op and leave it in the barn.

Just yet another law I won't be following....

They don't want you insured. In fact, they want to prohibit you from being insured.

Because if you're insured, your insurer is likely to hire a lawyer to prove in court that your actions were self-defense. If you're not insured they can use the threat of financially destroying you to leverage a plea.

Kyle1886 08-12-2019 3:00 PM

If insurance companies will not insure, and it obvious why they wouldn't, it's akin to micro-stamping.

Neither is practical, but it does not stop politicos from creating and passing legislation.

"Liccardo acknowledged that mandatory gun insurance is just one of many steps required to protect his city from gun violence. For instance, he is fully aware that the "bad guys" aren't going to follow the law and get gun insurance. Still, he said, violating the insurance ordinance would give police "one more tool" in curbing rampant gun use and abuse"

So, if you don't get insurance then you are a "bad guy" and legal gun use is "rampant" and must be eliminated.

Read the article, he has other proposed ideas too.

bool1tholz 08-12-2019 4:36 PM

On the radio version of the story on KCBS I think I heard that the insurance would be a new requirement the dealer would check for in addition to the FSC prior to sale of a firearm. If that is true this law is designed to end all gun sales in San Jose. Liccardo must be trying to raise his profile before moving on to Sacramento.

While everyone debates here and starts to go on each other they will implement it... relax, take out your cold beer and is Monday night football!

johnnyh75 08-12-2019 4:54 PM

what a freaking head ache!!

boltstop 08-12-2019 5:07 PM

I can see the criminals flocking to get insurance before going out to commit crimes. (Shakes head)

big red 08-12-2019 5:16 PM

If that nutcase in LA can try to ban all semi-automatic guns then you know every fruit loop who got elected to an office is going to try and out do him with some crazy insane idea. be prepared for more nut case legal proposals in the form of local laws hoping they go state wide. The fun is just beginning.

afteractionreport 08-12-2019 5:47 PM

Yes, pleaee sign me up for the NRA policy...ill make sure to ask them not to give me the cheapest policy...

EpiTaph 08-12-2019 6:25 PM

I have known Sam for over a decade...good guy...except...

He has statewide office in mind, he is a Gavin clone...and he will do ANYTHING it takes to get more power.

He has been against housing for years, he is a staunch liberal Democrat.

He knows zip about guns...and I am going to try to find out who gave him this crap plan...I have an idea...but not sure yet.

This is 100% aimed at higher office...everything about him is that way.

Get used to it...he will likely be around the power structure of the state for a while...

Oh, classic no moral compass politician...will do anything for votes and power.

1320Fastback 08-12-2019 7:24 PM

What a genius, this will totally stop all illegal gun crimes!

Tortugatron 08-12-2019 7:38 PM

Glad I moved the f’ck up out of San Jose 4 years ago. So much stupid

Eureka1911 08-12-2019 7:39 PM

They are scared. When people are afraid they do irrational things. Fear is how politicians have controlled people since the dawn of civilization.

holdfast 08-12-2019 7:57 PM

Meanwhile, criminal insurance will be free.

Kind of like honest law abiding, insured drivers paying extra for uninsured motorist coverage....WTF is that?

Sputnik 08-12-2019 8:25 PM

No insurance company is going to write a policy for what might be done with a gun that has been stolen and is no longer in your possession.
Does your car insurance cover damage a car thief does after he steals your car? I don't think so because you are not responsible for another person's actions.

fishnbeer 08-12-2019 8:28 PM

Really? S.J. has much bigger problems to deal with.

We just moved away from S.J. F-that place. We were on lower east side. Heard the ghetto bird circling 2-3 nights a week, homeless pop out of control, constant home burglaries and car thefts in our area.

Oh yeah, sanctuary city, makes sense.

NO, he IS NOT a good guy....he is a rotten liberal scumbag who is anti freedom, and wants YOU, and everyone else disarmed and helpless.

What, you're telling me this is this first good guy with no moral compass you've ever heard of? You need to get out more man.

DB> 08-12-2019 9:39 PM

That's kinda like saying he's a good guy, except he beats his wife and murdered his in-laws...

The road to hell is paved with "good" intentions... and the bodies of good guys who got in the way of the other "good" guys.

The news down LA way is making hay of this insane proposal, so any stupid anti 2A, anti law abiding gun owner idea is in play... interesting times.

jcwatchdog 08-12-2019 10:50 PM

So, if my gun gets stolen and used in a crime, the insurance will cover it. But if I use the gun for self defense, it wonít protect me? So criminals will be protected, but not me? Thatís basically what Iím reading.

Yeah, it makes NO sense.

By this logic, I shouldn't have to pay taxes to fund public schools since I don't have any children.

He's a "good guy" and will do "ANYTHING it takes to get more power"?

The guy you've known for a decade is a **** head.

DesertDave100 08-13-2019 6:52 AM

Isn't he also the scumbag who had the SJPD stand down so that folks at Trump rally's could get beat on with impunity?

cdtx2001 08-13-2019 7:01 AM

I hope he requires that the policy be no less than $10 million in liability insurance per person. Doooo It!!!!

IPSICK 08-13-2019 8:21 AM

My argument for this has always been that automotives require insurance for operation on public roads.

If this is the train of thought, then we should only be required to have insurance for armed carry out in the public. Sounds like they need to issue carry licenses as common as they issue driver's licenses.

Ummm...I was joking about the good guy part...the content of my post makes that point....( should have indicated that after the first line...my apologies):43:

Politicians by nature and the demands of getting elected...are not the type of people to be trusted....

Terminator2 08-13-2019 9:09 AM

Once again we see a "Knee Jerk" reaction after a mass shooting incident from a jerk politician.

Perhaps Sam didn't lookup the definition of "infringed" before proposing his latest leftist decree.

San Jose Mayor Proposing Liability Insurance For Gun Owner
 
We need to stop this now.

https://news.google.com/stories/CAAq...S&ceid=US%3Aen

This is going to cost gun owners. It will spread like wild fire to other jurisdictions.

ja308 08-13-2019 10:18 AM

Its apparent that too many gun owners have fled california and that our legacy of freedom has not been passed down to these voters.
The only option I can think of is to recruit republicans and join NRA/CRPA
