The San Jose City Council voted this in last night (Tuesday). A yearly tax on owners, requirement of insurance, and non-compliance will result in confiscation by city.

I highly doubt it would survive scrutiny by SCOTUS.
I surely do hope that it is contested!!
This is just a good way to keep the Second Amendment Foundation, et. al, attorney's funded. There's no way this will survive, probably even at the 9th Circuit level, ending this without even going to SCOTUS.

Mistake not my current state of joshing gentle peevishness for the awesome and terrible majesty of the towering seas of ire that are themselves the milquetoast shallows fringing my vast oceans of wrath.
We should strip away any government budgeted protection service they receive - armed guards, escorts, whatever. If they get any service, they should be taxed on the benefit. The public pays for the wages, expenses, insurance etc for the employees providing security services. That benefit should be applied as personal tax to the government employee benefitting from said service. Any level up to the POTUS. Cost of SS detail - cost should be added to POTUS as income and be personally taxable.
I don't know. I'm making stupid shit up. Just like San Jose.

Much like what SF attempted to do years ago with a rash of young but ideologically bent 'progressives' on the board of supervisors, they passed a variety of 'good idea' gun laws and snuck a handgun ban onto the ballot. Most of them got shot down by the courts as being unconstitutional.
Chuck Michel will likely lead the defense team and the City of San Jose will be paying through their nose on these.

It is not a poll tax, but it will be unconstitutional.
The fish is mute, expressionless. The fish doesn't think because the fish knows everything.
Call it anything that you want to as long as you realize that when the courts get involved that if it was applied to me that I would go after the people personally that tried to enforce this unconstitutional action. Commiefornia at its best. ............................ drill sgt.
1. Lawsuit(s) will be filed
2. Injunctions will be issued suspending enforcement until court action is finalized
3. Measure will be overturned by the courts
4. TAXPAYERS WILL PAY EVERY STINKING DIME OF LEGAL EXPENSES AND COURT COSTS FOR BOTH SIDES OF THE ACTIONS.
#4 is the really big problem with such nonsense. The politicians never have to come up with the money to pay for their mistakes, everything is passed on to the general public.

Leftists aren't very good at carefully thinking things through before plowing ahead, are they?

In their mind, it's throwing as much against the wall as possible and seeing what sticks. With all forms of media, news and entertainment firmly on the side of the Left, they're banking on shaping public opinion while pushing such measures.
A pretty good article on the San Jose idiocy...
The right of self preservation, in turn, was understood as the right to defend oneself against attacks by lawless individuals, or, if absolutely necessary, to resist and throw off a tyrannical government.
What strikes me as most interesting is that the city council voted strongly to support the measures, despite seeming to have no clear support from the community- essentially deciding what they want for the city. It also clearly violates California law that stipulates that no lesser body of the state can enact more stringent measures than the state constitution allows. The leftists attacking our rights couldn’t be more obvious.
