Another Gun Control Ploy

It seems that if they can't exactly go after the firearms, then they will attempt to manipulate the system in any means necessary to make owning a firearm so expensive only a select few can own them. How about this:

"Kenneth Dunkin, a former social worker and Democrat member of the Illinois House of Representatives, has introduced HB0687, entitled the “Firearm Owners ID-Insurance” bill. It is currently in the Rules Committee.
Dunkin’s bill amends the Firearm Owners Identification Card Act, a previous bill aimed at chipping away at the Second Amendment. Dunkin’s amendment states “that any person who owns a firearm in this State shall maintain a policy of liability insurance in the amount of at least $1,000,000 specifically covering any damages resulting from negligent or willful acts involving the use of such firearm while it is owned by such person.” [link]

How about we start trying to get a bill that states "All elected officials must carry a liability insurance policy in the amount of at least $20 million lest they in any way, shape, or form try say or do anything that tries to limit, curtail, regulate, ban, eradicate, outlaw, etc... anything that has to do with personal freedom and responsibility. This policy will specifically cover any damages resulting from negligent or willful acts of using your powers as a representative of the people to try and remove their freedoms and/or your violation of any part of the United States Constitution. Such examples include, but are not limited too: stress (from having to put up with your stupidity in office) and any related conditions caused by stress, high blood pressure, headache, carpel tunnel syndrome (from having to write, type, stamp, etc... to you and urge you not to be an idiot, and/or post on forums to get the word out about your treachery), or any other damages real or imagined."

Now we just need to give this legislation a name.
