Not only did New York legislators ram an ill-advised, twisted, tyrannical, fucktarded gun control law down the throats of its citizens and deprive them of some of the most effective defensive tools on the market today, but now, taking a line out of the ObamaCare playbook, they are also trying to force gun owners to purchase insurance.
Forcing. Private. Individuals. To buy. A product.
“Any person in this state who shall own a firearm shall, prior to such ownership, obtain and continuously maintain a policy of liability insurance in an amount not less than one million dollars specifically covering any damages resulting from any negligent or willful acts involving the use of such firearm while it is owned by such person,” the measure, dubbed S2353, reads.
And if you refuse? Well, “Such an occurrence ‘shall result in the immediate revocation of such owner’s registration, license and any other privilege to own such firearm.’”
This is instructive, boys and girls. We already knew that the ignorant cretins that run the shithole that is New York have no problem infringing on your rights. However, as you can see from this particular proposal, your rights protected by the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution are merely “privileges” for their purposes.
Privileges, not rights.
Authoritarian swinery duly noted. Again.
Such liability insurance will cost gun owners as much as $2000 per year. Now, tell me something – how many poor folks living in dangerous neighborhoods, who may need a tool of self-defense, can afford an additional $2000 per year after they have already purchased a firearm at a jacked up price due to mandatory gadgets and bureaucracy meant to make the firearm “safe,” by “well-meaning” politician assdrips? How many won’t be able to purchase a tool with which to protect their families because of the onerous extra associated costs?
I’m sure Demtard Assemblyman Felix Ortiz couldn’t give a flying rat’s fuck. I’m fairly sure he lives in a decent neighborhood, where he doesn’t have to worry about protecting himself and his family too much. Meanwhile, the people he seeks to disarm will be rendered defenseless by his efforts to make firearms cost prohibitive. Why do you hate poor people, Felix?
It is time for firearms manufacturers to start leaving New York. And it’s time for gun owners to follow suit. It has become nothing but a third-world banana republic with tyrannical politicians imposing their will on the very people whom they’re supposed to be serving!
