Quote of the day—Erik Simonsen

The same people who feel it’s necessary to give driver’s licenses to defiant law-breakers are the same ones trying to pass this nonsense. When did we become a state that put lawbreakers first, while attacking the rights of hard-working, law-abiding citizens?

Proposed N.J. gun law would mandate $50k insurance policies for all gun owners
[Answering the rhetorical question, evidence would indicate it was shortly after getting a socialist/communist majority in the state.

If you read the article you also find this interesting bit:

Governor Murphy signed an executive order in September making it practically impossible for a legal gun owner to obtain a firearms insurance policy. Attacking gun insurance as a gun ownership “enabling” concept has become a popular trend in blue states as of late.

So, the governor, through executive action has essentially banned people from obtaining firearm liability insurance (the NRA Carry Guard insurance). And:

A-6003 sponsored by Patricia Egan Jones (D-5) mandates that each New Jersey gun owner obtain a minimum of $50,000 in liability insurance at the time of purchase.

New Jersey is the one state that I refuse to visit until their oppressive gun laws are repealed or I can get a varmint hunting license for the politicians who created and/or perpetuate this tyranny.

These people need to prosecuted. I look forward to their trials.—Joe]

  1. A real-life Catch-22.

    Unless of course you are wealthy enough to post a bond to self-insure at the $50k level. But if you are that wealthy you also likely want a good umbrella policy and that might not shield you against civil suits over firearm use. So, back to the catch.

  2. This reminds me of skydiving clubs trying to get access to muni airports, only to be told they must have insurance. And such insurance doesn’t exist. There’s some pretty good case law and good legal help to defeat such bureaucrats. The same would be needed here.
    Boris, you may have hit on the actual goal here. The bad guys tend to consider rich gun owners acceptable, because they are “one of us”. It’s the ordinary Joe Sixpack with a gun that they can’t tolerate.
