San Jose Mayor Proposes Mandatory Liability Insurance for Gun Owners

The mayor of San Jose, Sam Liccardo, is proposing a city ordinance that would require gun owners to either carry liability insurance or pay a fee to cover public costs of gun violence in the city. San Jose would be the first city in the nation to require that.

According to KTVU, “the insurance would include coverage for any accidental discharge of the gun and for the intentional acts of any third parties who steal, borrow, or otherwise acquire the gun.” It won’t cover intentional acts done by the owner.

He also proposed creating a program that would offer cash rewards to anyone who reports someone who possesses unlawfully obtained weapons.
