Default Gun Insurance Scam...

https://www.yahoo.com/makers/9-thing...557320300.html
====
First time I've heard of this...
Not a scam in the traditional sense of how scams usually go....

But a scam just the same by the anti gun crowd...
That being requiring gun owners to carry liability insurance... There reasoning being you have to have car insurance etc... Why not firearms insurance...

So the state usually requires, say $100,000 in auto liability minimum....
Lets make the firearms liability, say $1 million.... Oh wait... That isn't enough.. Make it 2.... maybe 5 mil....

You see a pattern here ?? I think I do...

Facts, details, thoughts ??

I've read about this insurance thing on other forums...
Some feel it is a baby step in the direction of registration and confiscation...

Actually it is considered confiscation wouldn't be necessary in that once you have mandatory insurance in place, registration in place.... Just send a notice to surrender the firearms, for what ever made up reason...

Now there are always some in the crowd that say "never happen" or "over my dead body"........ Well.... Many things we didn't think would happen have..

Could this be the start of a well planned pattern ???

Facts, details, thoughts ???

It's not going to happen so there's little need to worry about it

These gun liability insurance efforts haven around for the last few years mostly at state level . That's where the real danger is. There have been house bills at federal level that have gone no where .

The danger here is that these laws can not be fought on 2nd amendment grounds. The anti gun crowd is just trying to make it to expensive to own guns. Worth keeping an eye on especially if you live in a state that liberals control the govt.

In a similar vein, I decided to check with my home owners policy about coverage (theft mainly) on my fire arms. On the basic policy--essentially no coverage, but could add them as a valuable property rider at a fairly reasonable premium addition. Just needed to list them--description, serial number etc. About to pull the trigger, when the thought hit--do I really want an insurance company which obviously has some sort of federal involvement (regulation) to know just what I have in the way of guns???

Still juggling a decision on this

Goggle in NRA and liability insurance . You'll be surprised.

And just like car liability insurance - the liability coverage is not on the driver, it is on the vehicle. So if one owns 2 or 3 cars you pay liability on each car. Now think how many guns you own.

And once again it does not violate 2A in the least .
