Who loves ya baby! Reply would it be legal to require insurance for a right protected by the constitution? similar to requiring insurance to protect your goods from unreasonable search and seizure? Reply Or, requiring you to insurance for posting online. NO it would not. On the face of it, it would be unconstitutional. But then again, that’s what I though about Obamacare and look how that got passed and later calrified by the USSC as a tax. Reply yeah, i have a feeling that the supreme court statement ‘it’s not a penalty, its a tax’ will be used as THE precedent for curtailing freedoms in the future. Reply Guns are insurance…. I love it! Reply Insurance for a gun, & brady criminal safe zones? Around here they know they can be sued if you are hurt in one so they have LLC’s with crappy insurance. A “safe” zone needs 30 million dollars liability ins. per customer to be sure they can pay for their stupidity, Randy Reply Blammo and a T shirt business!!! Bet he could sell a ton of them, especially with the 1911 in the pic on the short!!! Reply Indeed. I carry a gun for the same reason I keep a fire extinguisher in my car and house, for the same reason I have a first aid kit in the car and the house, for the same reason I keep emergency radios (ham and FRS) in our collection of stuff. Prior planning prevents poor performance. Reply I read that comment yesterday and couldn’t help but thinking, “I wish I’d thought of that!” Reply LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Please enter your comment!
