CA Bill Requires Homeowners Report Firearms To Insurance Companies, Government

California Assemblymember Mike Gipson (D) has introduced legislation to force homeowners and renters to report the number of firearms owned to insurance companies and the government.

Gipson introduced the Residential Property Insurance Firearms Bill, AB-3067, on Friday. The legislation, which is an addition to Section 2086 of the Insurance Code, would require homeowner insurance companies to ask insurance applicants how many guns they own.

The bill states that insurers will be required to “update the contents of their applications for homeowners’ or renters’ insurance to include the questions regarding the presence, storage, and number of firearms by January 1, 2026.”

Insurers are then required to “annually report the information gathered from the questions regarding the presence, storage, and number of firearms to the Department of Insurance and the Legislature beginning on January 1, 2027,” according to the text of the bill.

This is just the latest in a long line of unconstitutional measures imposed on Californians by the state’s radical leftist government. One such law was recently blocked by U.S. District Judge Cormac Carney. The law would have banned concealed carry in places such as public parks, playgrounds and religious institutions regardless of whether the person had a concealed weapon permit.

A vast majority of the anti-Second Amendment legislation that California Democrats have attempted to enact is also in direct contradiction to the U.S. Supreme Court’s landmark decision in New York State Rifle & Pistol Association Inc. v. Bruen. The justices ruled 6-3 to strike down a 1911 law requiring concealed carry applicants to demonstrate “good moral character” and “proper cause” — forcing anti-Second Amendment states like California to reduce restrictions on concealed carry permits.

Following this ruling, California and New York began trying to find a way to continue stifling their citizens’ Second Amendment rights while trying to get around the language of the ruling and the Constitution.

“California progressive politicians refuse to accept the Supreme Court’s mandate from the Bruen case and are trying every creative ploy they can imagine to get around it. The Court saw through the State’s gambit,” California Rifle and Pistol Association president Chuck Michel declared in response to the concealed carry ban being blocked.
