San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo is today proposing a city ordinance that would require firearm owners to either carry liability insurance or pay a fee to cover public costs of gun violence to the city.

Why it matters: San Jose is reeling from the Gilroy Garlic Festival shooting last month that killed 2 children and 1 adult and injured a dozen more. The city, the 10th-largest in the U.S., is the first to propose this kind of “harm reduction” measure to curb gun violence.

The article goes on to state the following:

How it works: If approved by the city council, the measure would require San Jose gun owners to have private liability insurance.

  • If such insurance is not available, or if an individual is not able to purchase coverage, firearm owners could pay a fee intended to help cover the costs to city police and emergency services related to gun violence.

Show your support for President Trump!

    Not only unconstitutional it doesn’t solve the root problem. There isn’t anything that will solve the gun problem other than confiscating every gun in the US. That simply will not happen! Ever! People are the problem and society is beyond any type of normal social responsibility .

    All they are doing is making a grab at everyone’s wallet.
    They are punishing gun owners that are law abiding citizens as always
