It is well over due that the City Of Blairsville Mayor and City Council be shown the road. A real bunch of losers if there ever was one.

How Many People Have Been Killed by Guns Since Newtown?
http://www.slate.com/articles/news_and_politi...

The answer to the simple question in that headline is surprisingly hard to come by. So Slate and the Twitter feed @GunDeaths are collecting data for our crowdsourced interactive. This data is necessarily incomplete. But the more people who are paying attention, the better the data will be. You can help us draw a more complete picture of gun violence in America.

Everyone wants a lush beautiful green lawn, yet so many people are often dismayed by the amount of work it takes to maintain their landscape. Growing grass that is capable of causing the Jones’s to gasp in awe doesn't have to be a dream. You can have a beautiful lawn, but first you need to realize a few simple steps to ensure that you are doing everything possible to ensure your lawn is healthy, green, and full of life.

I don't follow that one either. Although maybe it's an allusion to all the people killed by gun who are dead in the ground and making good fertilizer so the grass can grow greener... Beats me, man...

The same rules apply.

Once an amendment is in place and once weeds take over, it is very hard to change the outcome.

For the grass all the subsoil would have to be replaced. For the Amendment it would have to be replaced. In most cased neither one will occur without a struggle.

Perhaps the point is that there is a price to be paid for a marvelous lawn that is the envy of the neighborhood, and the freedoms enjoyed that are the envy of the planet.

Wondering, as a property owner it is in my own best interest to carry liability insurance, for some forms of property this insurance is required by the state.

Do these requirements (regulations) make us less free, or less enviable.

Does the fact that criminals do not follows these requirements and regulations make them unworthy of enforcement?

"Freedoms that are the envy of the planet "

What decade did you drag this statement out from ?
No one on the planet "envy's" America anymore.

It is funny that people most often throw around the word freedom when trying to limit or remove freedom from others.

If you do not agree with my explanation for the post of the Green Lawn, perhaps you could offer your own.

Wondering, if "No one on the planet "envy's" America anymore.", then why do people still immigrate to this country.

Tell us, do you feel that requirements for liability insurance limit or remove your freedoms.

Are you referring to liability insurance for guns? or the ammo?

Within in the context of the post I was replying to there seemed to be some question as to whether or not our status as a free nation was still enviable.

So I posed the question,
do you feel that requirements for liability insurance limit or remove your freedoms.

It doesn't really matter what type of property the state imposes a liability insurance requirement upon, the question posed was if this type of requirement limits freedom, or does it protect citizens from damaging and irresponsible behavior.

Firearms are among the types of property that can cause damage and are subject to irresponsible usage.

Say, that's a great idea. Require gun owners to purchase liability insurance. That way the insurance companies could make more money, and the government could add a new employees for an expanded government. Lawyers (wink, wink) could make money fighting with the insurance companies over claims. Why, it's a win, win for everyone. Well, except for the average man...

Feel free to lobby your state government for the repeal of all burdensome laws requiring liability insurance.

Hey, if people want to freeload of others who actually pay for health insurance, why shouldn't they be allowed to freeload off those of us who pay for the damage their irresponsible ownership or use of firearms causes.

If your kid shoots up a third grade class causing 9 kids to lose there parents, and 20 parents to lose their kids, why should the gun owner pay, let's make you and me pay the costs incurred.

Seems like a very reasonable idea to make any firearm, owner carry liability insurance so I don't have to pay for the damage their knucklehead son, brother, sister, cousin, cause with the firearms.

Why are so many people who demand others exercise personal responsibility, so against policies that make sure they do?

Kind of a conundrum.

Your question,“do you feel that requirements for liability insurance limit or remove your freedoms?”
First, the question is out of context. There is no issue with a limit or removal of one’s freedom; the issue would be legal liability of damages done.
Example=there are too many people driving the roads with no auto insurance. They have no money, no resources, and there is no way if they cause an accident they would be able to pay damages to me and mine. I have an option of uninsured insurance I can purchase for myself that would cover me and mine in the case of an uninsured driver. The uninsured driver will only be cited, if he was at fault, with a traffic violation and not having insurance. If the uninsured driver intentionally caused me harm in a road rage incident, he would be charged with a felony(if he could be found), but that would not reimburse me monetary expenses.

Federal and State governments are self-insured by taxpayers money. They do however require contract workers and builders to have liability insurance. The State of Georgia also requires me to have a min. auto liability policy insurance. Most small local governments do have liability insurance as a huge damage settlement against small local governments can impact their budgets seriously.

The only liability insurance I'm required to have in Georgia is auto liability insurance.
I have other liability policies to guard myself from financial ruin but they are not required by government rules and laws in the State of Georgia.
Liability insurance only protects citizens from damaging and irresponsible behavior in the form of monetary protection, and only if that citizen caused harm or damage by accidental incident.
No insurance carrier will pay off for purposeful or intended harm to another, including declared war.
