Insurance Company Offers Discount To Gun Owners

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."

I thought your

Black/African American post was dumb, but you have managed to take the cake here. Maybe you shouldn't post while drinking?

"managed to take the cake"

so that's how sober people talk? No thanks.

(edit) I'd like to put to rest the rumors that I drink a lot...

I drink a lot.

It is what it is and it ain't what it ain't. Also there's pandas.

People would

actually tell an insurance company they own a gun?

Only if they would also confess to owning

a fire extinguisher and running shoes.
