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.

Southern Baptist Convention Reverses Course on Name Change After BLP Reporting

They say they’re not changing their name.

The Southern Baptist Convention has sought to dispel reporting from Big League Politics on the organization’s planned name change, arguing that the institution isn’t formally changing its name.

But a close look at the American Christian church’s plans relating to its name reveal that it’s played with the idea far more seriously than they’re making it seem.

Reports of a name change first emerged in a Washington Post article published on Tuesday. SBC President JD Greear told the Post that “hundreds of churches” affiliated with the denomination had “committed” to using the phrase “Great Commission Baptist” as an alternative to the denomination’s longtime moniker. The change would come as Greear touts his support of the Black Lives Matter, although he’s been careful in pointing out he doesn’t support any formal organization related to the movement. Greear also is renaming the church he personally pastors with the term.

The SBC’s 2021 convention will also organize under the motto of “We Are Great Commission Baptists.” Sounds a lot like a name change, even if the SBC’s leadership is steadfastly maintaining it isn’t.

The name ‘Great Commission Baptist’ is theologically sound in the Christian religion, but it’s somewhat questionable that the organization’s leader appears to be emphasizing it at a moment in which political correctness is making its entryism into many Christian churches and organizations.

It seems as if the organization’s figurehead is keen to present himself as a liberal-style suburban Evangelical to the Washington Post, but he changed his tune quite quickly when the rank and file membership of Southern Baptist churches learned that he was promoting the idea of a name change.
