Car insurance and "Firearm" insurance are two different things. One is a right and the other, a privilege.

So then get yourself an umbrella liability policy if you think you can't be trusted with a gun.

Better yet, don't be a gun owner if you don't think you can be trusted with one.

There are policies out there right now.... Do you have liability insurance on your firearms? If not why dont you?

So you own guns, but dont like to talk about them in the gun section.... then you openly agree with anti gun bills that are going to effect you in a negative way?

Ones that might actually own guns but make statements like his.

And.... "Im an absolute supporter of the 2nd amendment... Hunting is great"

Or... "We need to protect our right to bear arms by registering them and enacting other common sense laws!"

Na, he's not got any guns....2000+ posts with the few about guns being in this thread???? No questions about anything gun or ammo related but plenty of posts about stupid shit in GD. Followed by, I have guns I just "dont talk about them"...

My theory, The liberal media has drawn the attention of our resident GD libtard to the topic of guns...Thus he see's our firearms section and desides to impress us with his knowlege on the subject. After all he has been brain washed by the best. I'd bet if it wasent for guns being the topic of the day he'd never be in here spouting off.

I'll just lay this here.... may help with some future lies.

When you choose to own / operate an item that can kill or maim another, like a car or gun its a good idea to have insurance anyways.

...ever been hit by an uninsured driver?
Do you buy insurance for your free speech? Your free speech can destroy the livelyhood of a person by costing them their business. Your free speech can cause your girlfriend to kill herself. Should you buy insurance?

It's not about rights vs. privileges.

The right of owning a gun, should also come with responsibility.
Responsibility does not equal COST.

You do not know me, other than the fact that I am of the opinion that just because owning a gun is a right, doesn't mean it is free.
Sorry buddy, but that right there is something a libtard like Feinstein would say.

Keep the guns in the hands of the rich. Thats the right thing to do. Most criminals are poor.

Right, and since most criminals are poor they won't be able to purchase this insurance meaning they will no longer be able to use guns for illegal activities. It's all coming together now in a logical way.

I love this site.... LoL

So What's wrong with someone who owns a side by side 20 gauge, but doesn't feel the need to participate in all the chat about guns?

I don't live with a gun on my hip like some do, but I do own one for home defense.

Maybe you're right, perhaps all the lib media has crept into my brain... Maybe I watch the news too much.

I never said I was going to vote for that policy, or even that it was right, at first glance I compared it to car insurance....so I made a couple stupid comments...

Give it a rest guys / your points been made, Bimmer4lyfe said something dumb....



Really, I just hang out here mostly for a few tips on our cars and the occasional chuckle or eye candy in OT ....

This site is kinda like entertainment for me mostly- So, I'll go back to the lol thread where I belong now...k.

If you want to have a serious conversation, respond to my post above about free speech and the damage it can cause.

Here's what it all boils down to, and why people need to be paying attention to anti-gun legislation:
Guns are guaranteed by the 2nd Amendment for the purpose of "the security of a free state". The design of the Bill of Rights was to limit the government, not the people. It outlined what the Government was not allowed to do. The intent of each amendment has a historical and logical reason. The 2nd Amendment was created to ensure that the citizenry always have recourse to ensure the US remained free. This is not because of external invasion, but to prevent a tyrranical government. They needed guns to overthrow Britain, and guns were kept as a right to keep the people free from the new government.
Every time a gun control measure is proposed, it's a further infringement that cuts a little bit deeper into that amendment, and if it keeps going, it'll eventually pierce the heart and kill the amendment. If we have no guns, what is our recourse should someone decide that A.) the President can be president for life, and B.) Americans are subject to international rule by the UN council (among other scenarios). The problem here is that these two things, and other measures that directly violate out Constitution, are currently being proposed by actual American elected officials.

This is why insurance is such a bad idea. It's an encroachment. People today see the poll tax for what it was - suppression of freedom. It just amazes me why not everyone sees this gun "insurance" thing as the same thing.
