Dems Want Gun Owners to Report to Insurance Companies

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.

“I believe it can be a free market answer to an important gun safety issue — let the insurance companies and banks decide what risks they need to consider when making mortgages and home owners insurance. Insurance companies ask lots of questions to determine that already,” he said.
