SPOUTING MALONEY
century ago, in 1923, Ernest Hemingway
wrote that the denizens of this part of
Manhattan "have all striven so hard for
careless individuality of clothing that
they have achieved a sort of uniformity
of eccentricity." He also called them "the
weird lot."
The place hasn't changed. Nor has its
wealth left with all the many industries
that have fled New York City. As of the

the boundaries of Maloney's gun
knowledge-or more likely, lack
thereof-investigative reporting turns
up plenty on her real agenda. In fact,
as you'll see, the facts show her to be
politically crass, either ignorant or
malicious-even for a politician-and,
oh yeah, that she hates not just your
freedom, but also poor people. More on
that as we go.

obtained a job working for the
New York State Legislature, and later was
elected to represent New York City's 7th
Council District.
She was first elected to Congress in
1993. For the 2013 legislative session,
Govtrack.us ranked Maloney as the
fifth-highest among all representatives
for "Bills Sponsored."
Let's take this one at a time.
Mandatory Liability
Insurance, Really?
Maloney wants you and every
other gun owner
to be forced to buy
liability insurance or
pay a $10,000 fine.
A lot of experts in
insurance law have
pointed out that
liability insurance
would not deter
gun violence, as
criminal activity
and suicides, which
wouldn't be covered
by liability policies,
make up 97 percent
of firearm deaths.
"To me,
insurance is just
a fancy way to
discourage gun
ownership by
raising the cost
of owning a gun,"
Russell Roberts, an
economics fellow
at the Hoover
Institution at
Stanford University,
told Bankrate. "I
don't think that's a
good idea because
not everybody obeys the law. You would
raise the cost for law-abiding citizens to
own a gun without having any impact on
those who illegally own a gun."
Nevertheless, in May, Maloney
introduced the "Firearm Risk Protection
Act of 2015." As of this writing-three
weeks after the bill was introduced-the
text of the bill wasn't yet publicly
available. But information her staff
leaked to The Hill described the bill as
requiring gun buyers to have liability

By studying gun violence as a disease that needs
to be treated with gun control, this idea turns
the Centers for Disease Control into an anti-gun
propaganda machine, which doesn't need to be
funded by tax dollars of lawful gun owners.
First, Just Who Is Rep. Maloney?
It's worth beginning with a short
profile of Maloney, as she is almost a
caricature of the anti-gun crowd.
Maloney represents New York state's
12th Congressional District, which, yes,
is located in New York City. Her district
includes several neighborhoods in the
east side of Manhattan, Greenpoint and
western Queens. Manhattan's Upper
East Side has long been known for its
wealth and out-of-touch elitism. Nearly a

2000 u.s. Census, the Upper East Side
contained the greatest concentration
of individual wealth in Manhattan and
had the most expensive real estate, when
measured by the square foot, in the
entire United States.
Maloney is actually from
North Carolina. In 1970, she visited
New York City and decided to stay. She
began as a teacher and soon became
an administrator for the New York City
Board of Education. By 1977, she'd
