N.Y. bill would force gun owners to buy at least $1M in insurance

Oh look another attack on 2nd amendment rights! New York is trying to pass a bill that would require firearm owners to carry 1 million dollars in liability insurance, basically a tax for firearm owners costing 1600-2000 dollars a year.


A bill introduced in the New York State Assembly by Assemblyman Felix Ortiz, a Democrat, would require the state’s residents to acquire liability insurance as a condition for gun ownership.

“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.


Liability insurance for $1 million in coverage for gun owners is estimated to cost between $1,600 and $2,000 annually, the Examiner reports.
