Firearms Risk Protection Act Will Stick Gun Owners With $10,000 Fine
Freedom Outpost ^ | Apr. 2, 2013 | Tim Brown

Posted on 04/02/2013 8:11:30 AM PDT by EXCH54FE

While the Socialists are finally coming out about the reality of the costs that Obamacare will bring and the utter monstrosity it is, others of the Socialist Democrat Party are pushing for gun owners to be forced to purchase liability insurance for gun owners. Those that don’t could face fines of $10,000. We told you that when you open the floodgates of allowing the Federal government to mandate purchasing a product there would be more to come. Maloneycare is just another in a long line of legislation that will be coming down the pipe.

Representative Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) introduced her bill, H.R. 1369, along with eight other Socialists in the Democrat Party saying it would be “the first bill to require liability insurance of gun buyers nationwide.”

The Firearms Risk Protection Act of 2013 requires gun owners to have “a qualified liability insurance policy” before they can even buy a gun, a clear violation of the Second Amendment, which Socialists swear to uphold then seek to undermine.

However, this isn’t just about citizens who wish to purchase a firearm. It’s about those of us who already own them. Maloney and her comrades want to impose a $10,000 fine if you don’t purchase liability insurance.

Chief Traitor John Roberts will not allow something so blatantly unconstitutional.

Just guessing but wouldn’t this be akin to registration of firearms. I would suppose that the insurance company would need a list of ALL firearms in the house complete with serial numbers.

Sounds like a back door method to gun registration. You don’t necessarily know the guns that are owned but you know who owns guns.

Think again. They will find a loophole that leaves you uncovered. If you think that you can comply with whatever gun law the communists, a/k/a the Democrat Party , aided and abetted by the republican Party, enacts you are only fooling yourself. Whatever law they enact that is complied with, they will only enact a stricter one. It is akin to one being taken out in a boat on a lake or any other body of water, and weights being attached to one then throne overboard. Should one be able to swim with the attached weights, one is merely pulled back in boat and more weights attached and then thrown overboard. This process is repeated until one sinks to the bottom.

The only way to defeat the Communists.. Democrats is to stamd up to them and fight them. Since 2012 demonestrated that they now control the election process, at least to the extent that they need to, voting them out of office is out of the question. We are at this point in time down to two options, surrender or fight.

American Christians should obey laws, only when they’re constitutional because the constitution and God almighty are the only authorities we’re under. We’re not under the authority of anyone who acts outside of the constitution and natural law. Politicians, judges, police, etc are under our authority. When we obey unjust laws we’re like parents who allow their kids to run their homes. We’ve done that for too long. We’re not right with God if we continue to allow the kids to run our home.

Two convicts just escaped from jail within an hours drive from me. All I know is the people that live there that have a gun in their house feel a heck of a lot safer than the people going to sleep tonight with a kitchen knife under their pillow.

Looks like a plan from elite constituents to disarm and take out the trash. Look behind the politicians. Follow the money.

Another attempt at a compromise bill against the riff-raff—a pool of Americans that will increase radically under austerity measures soon to come (big government layoffs, tax hikes, investment and pension “haircuts.” The big contributors among constituents would get more cash flow from their insurance companies, while large parts of the population would be disarmed against criminals.

So it would appear to be an answer to the political/regulator class fears of overpopulation, too. And subgroups in our population whose Second Amendment right is violated now will vote in favor of gun control later (revenge). Looks like a fascist plan.

They can impose a $10,000 fine, but then they have to try to collect it.

Thanks for the excerpt from the Thomas site. They’re using the First Settler Syndrome approach, too: grandfathering those who’ve already purchased. It’s worked very effectively, even in majority Republican counties on the Rockies, to get many regulations passed against freedom (planning offices, land use regs., building codes, anti-small-business zoning, etc.). Too many voters enjoy cutting off those aren’t already established.

"They can impose a $10,000 fine, but then they have to try to collect it."

Sellers (see "established" in my comment #30) would do so out of fear and pride. The very few sellers who would disobey would price items sky high. This isn't the America that I grew up in. Interesting stopped-up market we're seeing now, too. Looks like the "gatekeeping" plans of political/regulator class folks are well enforced in every level of politics and the market again.

They are trying to exclude the poor and minorities from having the means to self defense. Same ole same ole Jim Crow/classist laws to create a privileged class in American society. That's quite Victorian of our elitist politicians. It is distinctly un-American.

Congratulations you are correct that is exactly what these smiling proto-fascist really want. A list of who has guns any guns so they willl be able to hand it over to DHS sturmtruppen wannabes for rounding up political opponents for a one way train ride to a internment/reeducation camp. We have seen this before & when liberals say it could never happen here remind them of the Americans of Japanese,Italian & German heritage who were put behind barbed wire by FDR for there own protection of course. /Sarcasm

Strikes me that your classic car parked securely for the winter doesn’t require insurance.

Gun insurance would create a pool of money, dirty pool of gun owners (again the scarlet letter), to payout money for their shared culpability.

Here’s a thought. How about...insurance for people with STD’s...lotta filthy leftists in that dirty pool..!!!

No I don't (but I see your point). I was thinking along the lines of 7 "bullet" "clips" for "military style assault weapons" and evil glocks. I put that stuff in quotes so it would be MSM friendly.
