What is it about these progressive communist democrats who favor criminals over victims and refuse to prosecute gun-related crimes while trying to disarm law-abiding citizens?
Every industry in this country is subject to some form of legal liability except for one — the gun industry. And it’s time that survivors of gun violence and the families of victims get their day in court, when gun industry negligence has contributed to the tragedy.
[OCS: This is a bald-faced lie from a reviled liar/leaker who engages in perjury and the manipulation of evidence. Using the same logic, manufacturers of knives, cars, baseball bats, etc.]
The gun industry’s legal liability shield, passed in a 2005 federal law at the NRA’s behest, silences the voices of gun violence victims — even when gun makers and sellers act negligently.
[OCS: What the law does -- The Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (15 USC §§ 7901–7903) is a United States law that protects firearms manufacturers and dealers from being held liable when crimes have been committed with their products. Both arms manufacturers and dealers can still be held liable for damages resulting from defective products, breach of contract, criminal misconduct, and other actions for which they are directly responsible. They may also be held liable for negligent entrustment when they have reason to know a gun is intended for use in a crime.]
The NRA called the bill their #1 legislative priority at the time. And no wonder.
Look, I don’t think that people should be able to buy assault weapons, period, and I favor banning them. And if the makers and sellers of these weapons are marketing them to kids, or negligent in how they sell them, and the purchasers go on to commit the kind of attacks we saw two 18-year-olds unleash in Buffalo and Uvalde last month, I don’t want the gun industry getting a pass. They should be held to the same standard of care as every other industry. But until we remove the gun industry’s legal liability shield, the survivors and families of victims can’t do a thing in court.
[OCS: There is no such thing as an “assault weapon” – a scary name used to demonize all semi-automatic rifles. Fully-automatic military-grade weapons are strictly controlled, and possession is a crime without a federal license. Knowingly selling a weapon to an ineligible underage person, felon, or mentally defective person is already a crime and actionable in court.]
However, there is one way we can change that:
I’ve taken the fight to the gun lobby by introducing the Equal Access to Justice for Victims of Gun Violence Act so that victims and their families would have the right to hold gun manufacturers and sellers accountable just like every other American industry — and force them to make their products safer and use best practices when they sell them. President Biden has called this legislation his very top priority when it comes to gun safety.
[OCS: This is nonsensical and a political stunt to disarm law-abiding individuals by decreasing the supply of weapons from manufacturers scared of legal liabilities that could bankrupt their companies. Even an unsuccessful lawsuit is expensive to defend – multiplied by numerous frivolous lawsuits from bad political actors.]
“Most people don’t realize: The only industry in America, billion-dollar industry, that can’t be sued, exempt from being sued, are gun manufacturers…If I get one thing on my list, Lord came down and said, ‘Joe, you get one of these,’ give me that one.” — President Joe Biden.
[OCS: Nice to see a coherent thought from some staffer delivered by an incoherent puppet of the Obama regime. But, like most of what Joe Biden says, it’s based on a lie.]
When you peel back the layers, there is a reason that stopping my bill is also the top priority for gun makers and dealers:
For the gun industry and the Republican senators whose campaigns they sponsor, it’s about money. Dollars and cents. Profits. The bottom line. That’s it. That’s all. Not the safety of our communities or their products. Not kids’ lives. Nothing else matters.
[No! You putz. It’s about freedom, the Constitution, the Second Amendment, and protection against government tyranny.]
So I’m asking for your help to change that, so victims and their families can sue the gun industry for the carnage they are unleashing on innocent folks across our country when they act negligently — the only country that experiences this epidemic of gun violence.
[OCS: How about a law that limits attorney’s fees in multi-million dollar cases?]
Add your name as a citizen co-sponsor of my Equal Access to Justice for Victims of Gun Violence Act today and together, let’s finally hold the gun industry accountable to the victims and families when they act negligently towards the public safety.
[OCS: I would rather be a citizen co-sponsor of a law that held criminals responsible for crime and implemented a three-strikes rule for gun-wielding gang members and criminals.]

Thanks for raising your voice on such an important issue.
Should a gun manufacturer be held responsible for the actions of the piece of shit that shot two police officers while out on parole because a progressive communist democrat District Attorney, George Gascon, gave him a pass on a gun-related felony charge?
We are so screwed when they demand gun control and ignore crime control.
