Legislation is pending that would require legal gun owners to purchase liability insurance or give up our guns. This legislation has nothing to do with insurance or liability Its sole purpose is to use the insurance companies to make easily available to the federal government a complete list of the names and addresses of every law-abiding gun owner in the country.

This will make Sen. Dianne Feinstein, Rep. Nancy Pelosi and all gun control advocates’ goal of confiscating the firearms of every honest gun owner very easy to accomplish. Then, only criminals would be armed, and we shall be unable to protect ourselves and our families from them!
