California, as usual, is leading the Left in wackiness as liberals see their chances for eliminating guns fading after the Newtown slaughter.
When the latest nut job massacred a score of youngsters, the Left saw an opportunity to reach their long-held goal of eliminating guns, using a road paved with the bodies of children to achieve their dictatorial goals.
What they didn’t count on was resistance from the majority of Americans, including many who identify themselves as Democrats.
The result has been that their dream bill, introduced by California Sen. Dianne Feinstein, faces increasingly slim chances of passage.
So California Democrats have joined liberals in five other states to throw a legislative hail Mary pass in the form of a proposal to require gun owners to take out liability insurance.
“I was moved, like many others, being the father of two young children, by the Sandy Hook incident and looking for constructive ways to manage gun violence here in California as well as the rest of the country,” said Assemblyman Philip Ting of San Francisco, who introduced AB231. “There’s basically a cost that is born by the taxpayers when accidents occur. … I don’t think that taxpayers should be footing those bills.” The legislation is co-sponsored by Assemblyman Jimmy Gomez of Los Angeles.
