To make a long story short I wanted to up the $2000 VA standard insurance for my firearms one of which is and AR-15. The company that GEICO uses for renters ins. wanted to know if it had a pistol grip, over sized mags, sawed off and if the ammo would be stored separate from the rifle. I confirmed the pistol grip, said the mags were not over sized (they fit just fine!) and that it was not sawed off. The agent that was assisting me was named Brenda said that they couldn't insure me because of the "assault rifle". Even when I told her I would store it elsewhere she said that because I told her about it it was in the system so sorry. So if you go to get renters ins. leave out the fact that you are exercising your 2nd amendment rights.
You should have told her it's not an "assault rifle" (which it most certainly isn't).
Consider filing a discrimination suit as it sounds to me that they are in violation of your civil rights (real ones).
