NY State bill to require liability insurance as condition of gun ownership
A bill was introduced in the State Assembly by Felix Ortiz (D-Brooklyn) that would require citizens of New York to acquire liability insurance as a condition to gun ownership.
Bill S2353 will require all gun owners in NY to obtain and "continuously maintain" insurance coverage of at least $1 million, or they will suffer "immediate revocation of such owner's registration, license and any other privilege to own" a firearm.
If the citizen fails to obtain the insurance, then by simply owning the firearm, they will be in violation of the law.
This bill was introduced by Assemblyman Ortiz as an amendment to the current NY State Insurance Law.
