Gun owner liability insurance?

By The Bakersfield Californian

OK, so now the Democrats want to force gun owners to "buy liability insurance to cover damages or injuries caused by their weapons."

If this bill (AB 231) should pass, will there be a task force put together to go after street gangs and make them register and insure their guns as well? Or will only the "legal" gun owners be forced to pay for this coverage?

And if this is "equated to buying auto insurance," will I also have to take out a supplemental uninsured gun owner's policy? If I can drive my car in public why can't I carry a gun if I am insured?

Will this cover just accidents by legal gun owners or will it pay for gang violence?

This is just another way to get money from law-abiding citizens and it won't make a difference in the amount of gun violence we see in California or anywhere in the U.S.
