New York wants $1M liability insurance on firearms

Gun News USANew York State Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Senate democrats continue their quest to usurp the Second Amendment by imposing undue burdens on those exercising that right in the Empire State. The latest attack is a bill that would require “owners of firearms to obtain liability insurance in an amount not less than one million dollars.”

State Senate Bill S2857A, sponsored by Kevin S. Parker, would “amend the insurance law, to require firearm owners, prior to such ownership, to obtain and continuously maintain a policy of liability insurance to cover any damages resulting from the use of such firearm.”

Such a law would raise the costs of firearms ownership in general, while effectively taxing legal gun owners to pay for the criminal acts of others not taxes (because they don't own their guns legally).
