Democrats Trot Out Legislation To Allow Gun Makers To Be Sued

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Another piece of legislation that will never get voted on in the Senate, but highlights how much Democrats want to find ways to drive gun manufacturers out of business, which would disarm law abiding citizens

Shooting victims could sue gun industry under Democrats’ legislation

Congressional Democrats on Tuesday unveiled legislation that would grant victims of gun violence the right to sue members of the firearms industry, NPR reported.

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) and Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) reintroduced The Equal Access to Justice for Victims of Gun Violence Act to help victims of gun violence have their day in court.

The measure aims to repeal a 2005 bill called The Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA), which grants federal protections to firearm and ammunition manufacturers, dealers and trade groups.

PLCAA, signed into law by then-President George W. Bush, prevents the gun industry from most civil lawsuits when a firearm is used unlawfully or in a crime, NPR noted.

Schiff said that the PLCAA gives the gun industry “an unprecedented and unique immunity from liability.”

“It’s time to hold the gun industry accountable. Under state and federal law, we require every other industry, like car makers and drug companies, to act with reasonable care for public safety,” he wrote in a Facebook post.

If someone uses a knife, a hammer, a car, you name it, in an unlawful manner, you aren’t going to sue the manufacturer, right? It’s not the fault of Gerber, Stanley, or Ford.

One has to wonder, though, what this is really about. Obviously, they’d drive gun makers out of business, but, consider how much money Democrats receive from lawyers. The top industry that donates to Schiff is….lawyers. Same for Blumenthal.

Of course, this is another way to blame the inanimate object instead of the criminals enabled by weak on crime Democrat policies.
