San Jose mayor’s ‘gun insurance’ hits law abiding citizens and makes poor people less safe
San Jose, the 10th largest city in the nation, is a progressive trendsetter like San Francisco and Los Angeles. It’s in a state that already has some of the worst gun laws on the books. Making it cost-prohibitive for low-income families to have the means to protect themselves is the most asinine proposal he could make. Punishing law abiding citizens who own firearms is not about keeping guns out of the hands of the wrong people. It’s about keeping guns out of hands. Unfortunately, it won’t make a dent in guns that are used in crimes, only guns in the hands of people who will become victims of these crimes as a result of the Mayor’s proposal.
This is the most illogical gun control idea I’ve heard. It has nothing to do with stopping crime. It has everything to do with punishing gun owners and making it harder for low-income families to protect themselves. This is gun prevention, not crime prevention.
