Gun controllers want to destroy the Second Amendment via litigation.
The New York Times reports how the families of those murdered during the Sandy Hook massacre want to pursue similar legal strategies that anti-tobacco activists employed against the cigarette industry.
Gun control advocates hope that like in the case of the tobacco industry their litigation efforts will uncover suspicious activity on the part of the firearms industry, while also changing public perception.
David Wheeler, whose son was killed during Sandy Hook, sees this as an opportunity to expose gun companies like Remington.
Wheeler said, “We can find out what the Remington defendants have tried every step of the way to block in discovery.”
The semi-automatic rifle that the Sandy Hook killer used was a Bushmaster AR-15 manufactured by Remington.
Joshua D. Koskoff, a lawyer representing the families, believes that the discovery stage of the litigation progress is “really the most important thing we’ve been waiting to do.”
The Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act is the biggest obstacle for pro-gun control forces who want to use federal litigation to bankrupt gun manufacturers.
Under this law, gun manufacturers are shielded from most legal action when their weapons are used during a crime.
However, gun controllers are getting creative with their tactics.
The New York Times highlights how these families are now shifting gears towards accusing these companies of questionable marketing practices:
In the lawsuit, the families assert that the weapon used in the massacre was marketed in a way — with militaristic and hypermasculine slogans — that specifically reached out to troubled young men like the one who carried out the attack.
BLP previously covered how gun control advocates scored a victory in the Connecticut Supreme Court thus paving the way for future lawsuits against gun manufacturers.
This new angle of accusing gun manufacturers of unfair trade practices will likely be the go-to legal strategy for gun controllers.
The legislative strategy used by anti-gun forces since the Parkland shooting is well-documented. Now they have appeared to come across another means of undermining gun rights by using litigation.
BLP’s reports have shown that gun controllers have taken a multi-prong approach in pushing gun control by using legislative, corporate, and now legal means to move their agenda forward.
Many anti-gun interests understand that conventional means of passing gun control are not enough to make radical gun control a reality in America.

Houston Police Allow Abortion Clinic to Operate Despite Texas Courts Ruling Them Non-Essential
On March 30th, a judge ruled that Texas abortion clinics could stay open. This ruling came a few days after the Texas governor, Greg Abbott, deemed abortion servies non-essential.
Since abortions are clearly elective surgeries, the ruling was overturned by a vote of 2-1 in the 5th circuit court of appeals on March 31st. Meaning, the governor’s order stands and abortion clinics must close until non-essential businesses are allowed to open back up.
This hasn’t stopped one abortion clinic in Houston from continuing to kill the unborn.
In a video released on April 1st, via the YouTube channel ‘ProofThatGodExists,’ an abortion clinic in Houston is shown to still be accepting clients.
A couple of pro-life activists are shown in the video standing outside the abortion clinic. Across the street is a police officer, with whom one of the activists eventually talks.
They tell the offiicer that the abortion offices are still seeing clients. The officer acknowledges their concerns and says, “we’ll take care of it.”
A few minutes later, the officer goes to talk to the pro-life activists. The officer informed the activists that he was just there to “keep the peace” and nothing else.
One of the activists again informed the officer of the situation, asking, “Do you know that it’s illegal for them to do abortions today?” The officer replied, “I’m not out here for that.”
The activist then reiterated that he was asking him not why he was there, but if he personally knew of the current order. He wanted to know if the officer was not enforcing because he didn’t know about the order or because his department was choosing to ignore it in this case.
The officer didn’t want to answer directly. So, he again said, “I’m not saying that what you’re saying is wrong…. But that’s not what I’m out here for. I’m out here to keep the peace….”
He then said, “Whoever you need to call to enforce what you’re asking me about…” He was interupted by the second activist, who challenged him, insisting, “When people are breaking the law, we call the police.”
The video continues on with many more women entering the clinic. Eventually the abortion doctor arrived to the clinic, as well.
It’s clear that the clinic is in direct violation of the order that declares abortion services non-essential. Why the Houston police aren’t enforcing the order as it pertains to this particular clinic is still unclear.
