    Lol no its not, or at least the attempt at passing it isn't new.

    A long time ago, Linsky (linstain) and Creem have had bills like this. They tried that in MA several different times and the last time they did this, the MA insurance industry basically came right out and said to them "no, f*** you, we will not underwite this, ever. get lost. scram. " [rofl] so the last attempt in MA went over like a fart in church. It never went any further than that because they know it would turn into a
    direct 100% gun ban, which in turn would get crushed.

    That idea has been kicking around for years,. I don't see any insurance company selling that kind of policy.

    The requirement will not apply to sworn employees of law enforcement agencies.

    Awful funny coming from the mayor of one of the most violent cities in the US, with some of the most absurdly stringent gun control already.

    In addition to the insurance requirement, Liccardo proposed a gun and ammunition sales tax to fund gun safety classes, violence prevention programs, and additional victim assistance services for survivors of gun violence.

    Working with the Santa Clara County district attorney’s office, Liccardo plans to come up with a consent-to-search program for juveniles. This would allow parents to consent to have local law enforcement search their homes for any weapons owned by their dependents. It would also allow police to “seize those weapons, in exchange for an agreement not to prosecute the dependent for unlawful possession of the firearm or weapon,” the press release says
    .

    How about "no"?
