WASHINGTON – A new bill introduced in the United States House would prohibit anyone from purchasing a firearm if they are not covered by appropriate liability insurance.

According to the bill, gun owners who don’t have coverage could then be fined no more than $10,000.

Servicemen and law enforcement officers would be exempt from the requirement.

The bill was referred to the House Committee on the Judiciary.

The legislation is sponsored by Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-NY-12).
