Insurance Company Offers Discount To Gun OwnersSubmitted by Chris Conspiraski on Fri, 02/22/2013 - 02:42
Discount will apply to home-owners, automobile drivers, life insurance policies
A major American insurer is offering a steep discount for owners of life, health, car, and home-owners insurance policies.
American General Insurance Company announced the plan today amidst fanfare, stating that "those who own and know how to use a gun are our best insurance against claims. Gun owners are an insurance companies' best friend."
When pressed for specifics, a spokesperson told us "gun owners are the best risks for an insurance company to take. They tend to be cautious people who like to plan ahead to not just be ready for, but to ultimately avoid altogether the types of scenarios that cause companies like mine to pay out hundreds of millions of dollars each year. Gun owners are responsible. They're prudent, they're wise, they're ready. They drive safely, get robbed less frequently, and they protect what's theirs, meaning that ultimately my company doesn't have to.
"Selling insurance to gun owners is one of the easiest decisions my company makes on a day-to-day basis."
