No license shall be issued or reissued pursuant to this Article unless there is in full force and effect a policy of insurance in such form as the City Attorney and the City's Risk Manager deem proper, executed by an insurance company approved by the City's Risk Manager, whereby the applicant or licensee is insured against liability for damage to property and for injury to or death of any person as a result of the sale, transfer or lease, or advertising for sale, transfer or lease, or offering or exposing for sale, transfer or lease, of any firearm, firearm ammunition or firearm ammunition component. The minimum liability limits shall not be less than $1,000,000 for damage to or destruction of property in any one incident, and $1,000,000 for the death or injury to any one person; provided, however, that additional amounts may be required by the City Attorney or City's Risk Manager if deemed necessary to protect the interests of the City and its residents.
Such policy of insurance shall contain an endorsement providing that the policy will not be canceled until notice in writing has been given to the City, address in care of the Chief of Police, 850 Bryant Street, San Francisco, California, 94103, at 30 days immediately prior to the time such cancellation becomes effective. Further, such policy of insurance shall name the City, its officers, agents, and employees as additional insureds.
In addition, applicants and licensees shall agree in writing that they shall indemnity, defend, and hold harmless the City, its officers, agents, and employees, from claims arising out of the negligence or the intentional or wilful misconduct of the applicant or licensee.
