SAN JOSE, Calif. - The San José City Council will vote Tuesday on requiring every household with a gun owner to have liability insurance coverage for their firearms and pay an annual fee – which would make San Jose the first city or state in the nation with such gun violence reduction proposals.
Requiring every gun owner in my city to carry liability insurance will better compensate unintentional shooting victims and their families for medical and related expenses, Liccardo argued.
Imposing a modest annual fee on gun owners can support underfunded domestic violence and suicide prevention programs, gun-safety classes, mental health services and addiction intervention, Liccardo said.
"While gun rights advocates argue that gun owners should not have to pay a fee to exercise their constitutional right to bear arms" Liccardo said the "2nd Amendment does not require the taxpayers to subsidize folks to own guns."
Liccardo said his proposals are modeled after public health approaches that have reduced auto-related deaths, tobacco use and teen pregnancy in the U.S.
