Gun Control Through The Backdoor

ARE YOU READY FOR THIS?

I am shamelessly reprinting this story and I suggest bloggers spread this story far and wide…oh, and somebody might want to let the Illinois PUMAs know this is going on.

Democrat Proposes Law Requiring Firearm Owners Have $1,000,000 Insurance Policies

Illinois — the land of Obama and the Blagojevich mafia — is serious about making the Second Amendment so expensive only the rich will be able to exercise it. Kenneth Dunkin, a former social worker and Democrat member of the Illinois House of Representatives, has introduced HB0687, entitled the “Firearm Owners ID-Insurance” bill. It is currently in the Rules Committee.

Dunkin’s bill amends the Firearm Owners Identification Card Act, a previous bill aimed at chipping away at the Second Amendment. Dunkin’s amendment states “that any person who owns a firearm in this State shall maintain a policy of liability insurance in the amount of at least $1,000,000 specifically covering any damages resulting from negligent or willful acts involving the use of such firearm while it is owned by such person.”

A million dollars!

Can you imagine the premium on such an insurance policy? It would be astronomical and out of the reach of most people in Illinois.

If the firearm owner cannot afford the insurance or decides that it is simply crazy and also unconstitutional and refuses to participate, “the Department of State Police shall revoke and seize a Firearm Owner’s Identification Card,” thus making the the firearm illegal and the owner a criminal.

If Dunkin’s bill makes it out of committee and is passed by the Illinois General Assembly, a whole lot of people will have their firearms confiscated by the State Police.

    Diamond, I’ll let one of your favorite people make my comment for me…..

    “Laws that forbid the carrying of arms…disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes…Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man”….

    Thomas Jefferson, quoting Cesare Beccaria in “On Crimes and Punishment”… (1764)

    While trying to spread the word I have found that the average man on the street is too involved in the Oscars or whats on TV to be bothered with something a important as this policy saying it’ll never pass, well it will pass if we dont wake up snd pound it home to those who should be doing what is right, instead of what is popular. We have already sold our childrens, children down the river with the bailout, lets not take away our last rite for protection. I dont remember who said it but”talk softly, but carry a big stick!”, Well, Its time to start Yelling and swinging that big stick before we are all handcuffed and labeled as criminals. We need to take back our country, its the peoples freedom that made this country the Greatest in the world, not the Government that has lost touch with the people they are supose to “work for”.
