As if the American people were not having a hard enough time paying their monthly bills already, leave it to the lawmakers to come up with a cozy new solution for their insurance industry contributors.
Before the huge ramifications of forced medical insurance via Obamacare has ripped a gaping hole in your wallet, we have now a new solution to the gun control debate that is sure to further bankrupt the American family. Leave it to politicians to find the solution to the gun control debate. Could this be their plan B for gun control? Pay no more mind to their silly arguments of trying to convince the masses of law abiding citizens that somehow they will be safer if only criminals and the government have all the guns. If Americans are not all stupid enough to willingly give up their guns, let's just force them to buy yet another type of insurance.
As Ronald Reagan said many years ago in a speech reminiscing about the days of having true freedom of travel, "The rate of car accidents did not go down after the requirement to have a driver's license was instituted." Likewise, a young and inexperienced driver being forced to pay over $200 per month for car insurance does not make the passengers in a car beside them any safer. But on the same nonsensical principle, the gun grabbers may have decided that if we are going to have to pry their guns out of their cold, dead hands then why not just make a boatload more money by making them pay for their right to keep and bear arms. The sound of money changing hands from insurance companies to politicians may soon be heard across our land.
In a recent segment of "The David Pakman Show" it is reported that 4 states are already proposing bills to require gun owners to buy gun liability insurance. As history has shown, what starts in one state often sweeps across the nation so if you think this is an outrageous idea, you may want to call your state representative very soon and let them know this would not be a good idea if they ever want to get re-elected.
This latest scheme may have been in the works for a very long time. Did you know that the NRA jumped into the insurance business back in January 2000? If you have not joined thousands of gun owners jumping off the NRA ship and joining GOA instead, you may find a website rather interesting now that this new type of insurance is being proposed. The website is titled, "The NRA Endorsed Property & Casualty Insurance Program: No one Understands Firearms Insurance Better." We know that they had been referring to liability insurance for gun-related businesses but it now seems somewhat miraculous that they already had positioned themselves for this latest fleecing of America via mandatory insurance. Just a lucky coincidence or what?
We can only hope that We The People will get just as enraged at the prospect of gun owner's insurance as we are about the dangers of gun confiscation. Mandatory insurance will prove to be a pathway to the same end. Are the American people going to fall for this latest political/insurance scheme and be fooled into accepting it as a compromise to gun control as they rip even more into our pocketbooks? This is no compromise at all! If you can't afford the insurance, it will become the new "legal" excuse to disarm you. If you can't prove you have insurance on your car, it gets towed away and your "right" to freely travel gets suspended. History tends to repeat itself using the same tactics for different reasons. Don't fall for it America!
