Washington Senator Pushes For “Gun Liability Insurance”

Washington state legislators are considering several gun control measures, from an assault weapon ban to a gun lock safety bill—even legislation requiring gun liability insurance. 

While Democratic Senator Maralyn Chase argues that her insurance legislation isn’t about gun control, in reality, it is.

In fact, such proposals do nothing but make it more difficult and more expensive for law-abiding Americans to practice their Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms, with no proof they would curb violent crime or reduce accidents. Additionally, laws like that proposed by Chase unfairly target the poor, who might not be able to afford such coverage and be left defenseless by Chase and her anti-gun cohorts.
