Democratic proposal would require insurance companies to ask!
There’s more than one way to build a national gun registry. Several states are deciding the path to control gun ownership lies in making it profitable for insurance companies to get involved. Financial profit speaks louder than our constitutional rights, doesn’t it?
Report from Personal Liberty:
A gun control proposal making its way through the Vermont statehouse would require homeowners to tell their insurance companies whether a firearm will be kept in the house. The measure represents an insidious trend of gun grabbers increasingly looking to the private sector to clamp down on 2nd Amendment rights.
According to Vermont Watchdog, the state bill “proposes to require an insurer that writes homeowner’s insurance policies to require a policyholder to disclose to the company whether the homeowner or member of his or her household possesses a gun that is stored on the insured property.”
Democratic state Rep. Thomas Stevens says the legislation is ultimately aimed at getting the private sector in the business of gun regulation.
Friends of the 2nd Amendment in the state argue that the bill would create a statewide gun registry.
“How would this be enforced? By requiring the insurance companies to submit proof of compliance to the government, of course. And no insurance company will create a policy that pays out when the policyholder willfully commits a crime. This is nonsense, and insulting nonsense at that,” Eddie Garcia, founder of the Vermont Citizens Defense League, told Vermont Watchdog.
The privacy-damaging Vermont proposal is just one of a bevy of schemes popping up throughout the nation that attempt to tie the insurance industry to 2nd Amendment rights.
