    Yet another reason to never live nor visit New York.

    Sounds like a good way to make it harder for the poor to legally own a firearm. Its not a tax, just a requirement. Between the insurance, a safe, and what ever else they dream up, they can make it so that the only people that would be legal would be the wealthy.

    Its called divide and conquer! The more they can separate us from each other, the less we will rally together against them. That probably works OK in the Big City but in the outlying areas, we dont separate that easily!

    Heres a little factoid to mull on- In 2011, the percentage of overall deaths that were the result of falling off things like rocks and ladders was 1 percent, or nearly three times the percentage of deaths that were gun-related: 26,631 versus 8,583.

    Looks like The Albanizers need to check the insurance status on those that own Ladders and rocks not guns...

    Impeach this a$$hole!!

    According to his bill, firearms ownership is a "privelege".

    See Section 1 of this BS!!

    How can he uphold the laws, when he doesn't know the laws?

    I like #4.
    With the NYPD shooting bystanders, seems to me that they ought to not be waivered.
    ???
    Well, there's your problem.
    Apparently it's the Bill of Privileges in NY state.

    It's real simple, If you can't apply a similar burden or restriction to the other amendments, then you can't do it to the 2nd. Does one need insurance to exercise any other rights? Religion insurance? In case you offend muslims and a riot breaks out? Speech insurance, in case you offend homosexuals and a gay pride parade breaks out?

    That's a racist proposal! It marginalizes the poor and downtrodden. ;)

    No to mention that it defies the Constitution.

    for a long time I believed that right would prevail, that the constitution meant something. BUT what we have are people willing to sacrifice honor, duty and the rights off every citizen for power. They have banded together to annul our rights, willfully and knowingly, without shame or remorse.

    For anyone who does not know, this is the same "butt-ring" that brought the idea that we cannot walk and listen to a personnel music device or cell phone while crossing a street. Check out some of the laws this guy has proposed or managed to get passed. HE is the Mayor Bloomburg of the NYS legislature...

    and we expect anything less from a state where you enter on the 90, and are greeted with toll booths, but the first welcome center is 56 miles into the state? needless to say, I am no longer buying guns until after I have moved out of this state.
