Fairfax, VA -(AmmoLand.com)- We’ve been reporting on Democrat presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton and her anti-gun mentality for months.

She has been especially focused on the alleged immunity gun manufacturers have under federal law, the Protection in Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA).

She has often claimed, incorrectly, that gun manufacturers “are the only business in America that is wholly protected from any kind of liability.”

Despite the fact that her accusations have been completely debunked as false on Politifact and elsewhere, Ms. Clinton continues to trot out these deceptive talking points, promising she’ll repeal “the gun industry’s unique immunity protection” if elected.

A recent poll  by the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) indicates that the American public isn’t being taken in by Clinton’s anti-gun nonsense. According to the poll, more than seventy percent of voters surveyed nationally on the issue disagreed with Ms. Clinton and her stance on the PLCAA.

Instead, voters across party lines support the common sense position that it is wrong to hold firearms manufacturers and retailers liable for the actions of third parties who misuse lawfully sold products in crimes. According to a NSSF report on the survey, “a majority of voters in all regions of the country” say the statement about keeping the PLCAA as law more closely reflects their opinion, “even for a majority of those who cast a vote for President Obama in the last election (53 percent) and for a majority of non-gun owners (56 percent).” Significantly, a higher percentage of those surveyed who identified as “Strong Democrat” supported the PLCAA than opposed it.  Even among her party’s strong identifiers, Clinton’s duplicity is not winning her any converts.

Commenting on these results, Lawrence G. Keane, NSSF Senior Vice President and General Counsel, notes “it’s time for politicians to demonstrate that they have some respect for the good sense of the people and to stop vilifying the hard-working people of an entire industry and exploiting real tragedy that is the result of criminal conduct.” 

We doubt Clinton will take this advice, but it would behoove her to think carefully when treading in such murky waters come general election time.

    Yes Daniel, those evil automobile manufacturers are building cheap cars that they know will get into the hands of teenagers, who tend to be less careful than other drivers and will hurt someone, and older drivers who buy high caliber overly powerful cars, then don’t react as fast to emergencies, and will hurt someone. Those evil car makers even make automatic models!

    Daniel, why stop there? How about suing the same numb-nuts that passed legislation for Gun Free Zones, gun waiting periods, et al for limited the ability to defend oneself. Had Second Amendment restrictions not be in place, many would not have been harmed.

    It’s funny to think how ironic it is that a Clinton of all people would speak of “gun control” after so many of their opposition have been taken out using firearms.
