    I’m sure the gangbangers will be calling their insurance agents and making sure they are fully covered…

    Great way to see what idiots pipe up and say they have a gun, and then of course your premiums will rise as well.

    Time to sue the stupid mayor and Santa Clara dip shits.

    The easy access of firearms in the USA provides guns to the cartels down south. Then politicians will use that to scare USA citizens about immigration. The USA creates its own problems.

  5. clearwater on January 24, 2023 at 1:26 am

    Good idea. Criminals can now kill more people because insurance companies will pay for those they killed.

  6. TheModernPrepper on January 24, 2023 at 1:27 am

    This only effects me and I’m not a criminal

  7. 911JayishSupremacy on January 24, 2023 at 1:27 am

    What a scam and blaming gun owners isn’t the solution or the problem. It’s is illegal gun owners that aren’t registered and most are gang banging criminals that don’t give a f🤬ck about insurance. Yea government scam right here should be taken to the Supreme Court violation of 1st Amendment right.

  8. BillyL6 on January 24, 2023 at 1:28 am

    lol yeah man. just like how criminals that drive cars also register their cars and also have car insurance.

  9. Proj_Doomsday on January 24, 2023 at 1:30 am

    cause everybody thought they never needed car insurance either.

  10. supersonicwings on January 24, 2023 at 1:32 am

    Tyrants!!

  11. Joseph Landry on January 24, 2023 at 1:32 am

    I can’t wait! We are going to be so safe!!!

    ******WARNING***** DEMOCRATS AT "WORK".*****

  13. Andrewb5681 on January 24, 2023 at 1:36 am

    I will be safe now when I carry my own gun around the house I will be full insured to whoever gets the money monthly.

  14. Mike San jose on January 24, 2023 at 1:38 am

    Oh it makes sense now it’s a $25 scam that’s how much the permit would be from the city

  15. Westcoastplinkin655 on January 24, 2023 at 1:40 am

    SJ has double downed on this ridiculous law. I remember when it was first being talked, they wanted to confiscate people’s guns that didnt’ have insurance. I’m sure their lawyers told them there was ZERO chance it would hold if they did that.

  16. DontEatBatSandwich on January 24, 2023 at 1:41 am

    You get what you voter for. Enjoy your hell.

  17. Middle Guy on January 24, 2023 at 1:43 am

    Why do these idiot politicians think criminals follow the law? This will make nobody safer at all.

  18. Baron Maupertuis on January 24, 2023 at 1:44 am

    Did you see what you typed? "In an effort to crack down on gun violence" and then you say "proof of insurance covering accidents". Accidents aren’t gun violence.

  19. Tired American on January 24, 2023 at 1:47 am

    Even the insurance rep thinks it’s stupid. He said your home insurance covers this. Also, if it’s like car insurance when’s the last time car insurance stopped car accidents?

  20. Björnson on January 24, 2023 at 1:47 am

    Won’t comply. Screw you SJ

  21. 1flybyguy on January 24, 2023 at 1:49 am

    I will be 100% ignoring this ordinance.

  22. DIDAmnesia on January 24, 2023 at 1:53 am

    Literally a poor tax that doesn’t work. Car insurance doesn’t stop accidents

  23. propblast82nd on January 24, 2023 at 1:53 am

    The latest effort by our communist leader to infringe on the 2nd Amendment

  25. Miles Mayhem on January 24, 2023 at 1:54 am

    The grift never ends.

  26. Ian Garrett on January 24, 2023 at 1:55 am

    This is not about gun insurance people……………. THIS IS ABOUT CONTROL!!!!!

    Thank God I live in a free state!!! I feel so sorry for California gun owners who have to deal with this anti-gun bullshit!!!!!

  27. SGT M on January 24, 2023 at 1:57 am

    It’s another way to bleed the California people of there hard earned money. Gun owners already have to have a safe and training. This is a ploy for our hard earn money.

  28. Timothy Lopez on January 24, 2023 at 1:58 am

    🎉🥳New record America! 6,000+ kids were shot, and over 300 school shootings! 2022

  29. Ferenc Horvath on January 24, 2023 at 1:58 am

    Non constitutional it will fail in court and I’m sure the criminals will follow this law to the tee 😂😂how about refund the police and actually lock up and prosecute the criminals remember elections have consequences but Demo rats 🐀 keep voting for the destructive policies that are destroying San Jose

  30. JK BR on January 24, 2023 at 1:58 am

    Illegal
    Law-won’t last

  31. thunder bolt on January 24, 2023 at 1:59 am

    How about let the cops profile and Stop and Frisk certain people. Vote these democrats out of office.

  32. William Winn on January 24, 2023 at 2:00 am

    All it’s doing is cracking down on the lower class from owning a gun, you know the people that need it the most. Making sure poor people can’t protect themselves has always been the number one goal. will do nothing for crime

  33. Asskicker41582 on January 24, 2023 at 2:02 am

    Give me my CCW and I’m all about it.

  35. michael peralta on January 24, 2023 at 2:06 am

    Stupidest thing…. This doesn’t apply to criminals.

  36. TheModernPrepper on January 24, 2023 at 2:07 am

    😂😂😂

  37. Rainbow on January 24, 2023 at 2:08 am

    Pls send the insurance bill to criminals fitst

  38. montego breeze on January 24, 2023 at 2:10 am

    DO YOU REALLY THINK CRIMINALS CARE ABOUT SAFETY & LAWS

  39. Sergio Galvan on January 24, 2023 at 2:10 am

    I think you got paid by insurance companies

  40. Daniel Lambert on January 24, 2023 at 2:11 am

    Its not he law abiding citizens you need to regulate. Its the criminals who are doing all the "accidental shootings"

  41. Ethanol on January 24, 2023 at 2:12 am

    Oh yeah that’s totally going to work because criminals have a such a good track record of following the law

  42. S. Michael DeHart on January 24, 2023 at 2:12 am

    What a racist law…lower income individuals that need Constitutional covered protection, cannot afford.
    Another ignorant law that’ll be struck down by the SCOTUS.

  43. Targg The Wise on January 24, 2023 at 2:12 am

    No. It won’t. Simply more proof the left are anti America fascists. This will never survive court. Bwahahahaha another giant L for the fascists

  44. John Spain on January 24, 2023 at 2:14 am

    Goddamn pro-gun extremists love to bitch and moan over the tiniest gun safety measures.
