Hillary Refuses to Accept Setback for Leftists Who Want to Sue Gun Makers Out of Existence

(Before It's News)

A favored strategy for denying us our fundamental right of self-defense is to render the Second Amendment irrelevant by suing gun manufacturers out of existence. This scheme has suffered a setback:

A Connecticut judge has dismissed the lawsuit by Sandy Hook families to attempt to hold a gunmaker responsible in the deadly massacre, saying the company is shielded by a federal law.

The families affected by Adam Lanza’s December 2012 rampage that killed 20 children between 6 and 7 years old and six adults in Newtown say that Remington Outdoor was at least partly liable for the slaughter because it had marketed the military-style AR-15 rifle to civilians like the shooter.

“Military-style” does not refer to the gun’s functionality, but to its superficial appearance.

Remington argued that it did not actually sell the gun to the 20-year-old. The company repeatedly pressed for the suit, one of the country’s highest profile cases against gunmakers, to be dismissed.

Fairfield County Superior Court Judge Barbara Bellis granted the manufacturer’s motion Friday, saying that when Congress passed the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act it wanted to prevent suits against major manufacturers for heinous mass shootings.

This was a no-brainer ruling, but not one that can be taken for granted, since leftists will not accept defeat:

This is why we need for Republicans to hold the House and if possible the Senate, despite calls from the Trump camp not to vote down ballot. These fools have already cost us the White House. Now it is a matter of limiting the damage by preserving what remains of the GOP as a bulwark against Democrats.
