Democrats Introduce Bill to Bankrupt Gun Manufacturers with Lawsuits

Published

on

According to a ZeroHedge report, this week Democrats introduced legislation in both the House and Senate that would make gunmakers liable for firearms-related crimes.

This bill, The Equal Access to Justice for Victims of Gun Violence Act, would repeal The Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act of 2005 that protects gun manufacturers from lawsuits. Lawmakers from two of America’s most anti-gun states, California and Connecticut are leading the charge. Adam Schiff is one of the elected officials championing this legislation.

In a tweet, he said that the “victims of gun violence deserve their day in court.”

 

Connecticut Senator Richard Blumenthal is also a co-sponsor for this bill. Since the fallout of the Sandy Hook shooting in 2012, Blumenthal has been one of the leading voices for gun control in Connecticut.

The NSSF (the National Shooting Sports Foundation) was in strong opposition to this bill. NSSF senior vice president of government affairs, Lawrence Keane, told The Daily Caller News Foundation that this bill is “like blaming Ford or General Motors for the negligent use of their cars.”

He added, “It is wrong to hold the gun or any other industry liable for the criminal misuse of non-defective products sold lawfully.”

Passed in 2005, The Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act prevents civil actions against ammunition and firearm dealers, builders or trade groups over firearms related crimes such as school shootings.

This is one ploy that anti-gun Democrats are exploiting in order undermine gun rights. BLP recently reported on the Connecticut Supreme Court approving the advancement of a lawsuit against companies that manufactured and sold the semi-automatic rifle that Adam Lanza used to kill 26 people at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

This type of strategy will likely be replicated in future gun control fights, as gun controllers for any avenue to advance gun control.

The American Right Should Beware of Campaign Consultant Grifters

Some people want to make a quick buck with zero results to show for it.

Heading into 2022 and 2024, America First operatives should be careful dealing with campaigns run by grifters. 

Patrick Clerbune of VDARE put out an informative post that serves as a warning to all about the rampant corruption within Republican political consultant outfits. 

He highlighted a Washington Post piece detailing how donors gave more than $8 million to Kim Klacik, a black woman running as a Republican candidate in Maryland’s 7th district. In reality, the money donated to Klacik’s campaign went straight to the fat pockets of political consultants who knew full well that she couldn’t win.

The Post went into further detail about this naked grifting opportunity:

Her campaign is an example of how some consulting firms are profiting handsomely from Republican candidates who have robust appeal in today’s politically charged environment…

By the end of Klacik’s campaign, she would raise a staggering $8.3 million and pay nearly $3.7 million of it to Olympic Media, according to campaign finance filings.

For political veterans, this is nothing new under the sun. Political consultant parasites such as Karl Rove are notorious for enriching themselves by running failed campaigns and diverting resources from actual winnable races. Rove was also involved in the Georgia Senate dumpster fire, where the GOP dropped a whopping $1 billion and still ended up losing both seats. 

Pointing out how the managerial state is detrimental to all Americans, especially minorities, is one thing. But using failed ethnic pandering and running campaigns in districts that can never be won by Republicans is another. 

In the aforementioned case, Maryland’s 7th district has never gone Republican in its history and was the long-time home of Elijah Cummings from 1996 until his death in 2019. Democrat challenger Kweisi Mfume completely obliterated Klacik 74 to 25 in the 2020 general election. 

Intelligent nationalists would be wise to recognize that certain races are lost causes, which drain resources that could otherwise be allocated towards winnable campaigns. A large degree of skepticism should always be directed towards the political consultant class. Their money-making model does not always translate into electoral success.
