Chicagoans with guns in their homes might be required to have insurance to protect taxpayers from frivolous lawsuits, he said.
“We’re talking about putting first-responders in a very, very delicate position of people being armed without being notified how many guns they have in their homes,” Daley said. “We have to be able to fashion a law that truly protects first-responders and protects the citizens.”
Requiring gun owners to have some ridiculous amount of insurance is not a new tactic.Â But expect it, and others like it, to get dragged out of the basement and dusted off as politicians and gun control advocates look for new/old ways to discourage gun ownership.
