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.

Published

on

Antony Ferrill, the man accused of killing five co-workers and himself at a Molson Coors plant, reportedly had a long-running dispute with the co-worker .

The New York Post reported that Ferrill had frequently gotten into arguments with one of the victims he killed, a fellow electrician, according to an account that an employee related to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

The two co-workers had been accusing each other of going into each other’s’ offices and messing with computer equipment or swiping tools, according to a source, who did not want to be named.

The source also noted that Ferrill frequently watched movies on his phone throughout the day, which other co-workers complained about, and Ferrill believed he was being discriminated against because he was black.

Earlier in the day, Ferrill had been fired but ended up returning to the business facility with a stolen name tag and his firearm, according to WBBM-TV.

Ferrill had worked as an electrician for over 20 years. 17 of those years were spent at the Milwaukee brewery, according to a report from the Sentinel, which pointed to various sources and online employment records.

The tradesman turned murderer started to become paranoid at work, reportedly telling co-workers about a year ago that he suspected his bosses were breaking into his house, hacking his computer. and rearranging his furniture.

“I was, ‘Are you serious, Anthony? What?’” the unnamed employee informed the Sentinel. “We all kind of joked about it, saying we should maybe get him an aluminum hat. But he was dead serious about it.”

According to Phillip Rauch Sr., who worked with Ferrill for 15 years at the brewery, he was “a very good electrician.”

“Every time I worked with him, he was always in a good mood,” Rauch told the Sentinel.

Interestingly, the media did not focus much on the story.

Paul Joseph Watson of Infowars noted this on Twitter.

He tweeted, “Wow, this disappeared from the discussion quickly.”

Simply put, when a non-White commits an atrocity, the media will do everything it can to downplay it.

However, when a white person carries out a shooting, there will be non-stop coverage about growing white supremacy or other bugaboos the media is willing to conjure up.
