Anti-gun lawmakers on the Insurance and Real Estate Committee voted to draft a bill on February 14 to mandate liability insurance for firearms owners. While no specific language has been offered yet, a public hearing could come as early this week.
There are numerous problems with mandated liability insurance for firearms owners including: - It is an affront to law-abiding gun owners—you are not required to carry insurance to exercise any other constitutional right. - It is economically discriminatory—insurance is expensive and such a mandate could make firearm ownership unattainable for thousands of law-abiding Connecticut residents. Currently, no other state has a firearm liability insurance law. Misguided legislators behind this effort would subject their constituents and tens of thousands of law-abiding Connecticut citizens to a discriminatory and burdensome law that especially penalizes those who might not be able to afford such insurance. If your state Senator or Representative, listed here, voted for this outrageous measure, it is very important that you contact them today and let them know you oppose this attack on the Second Amendment.
