Arizona – -(Ammoland.com)- Hillary's proposed policy will destroy gun manufacturers.

That is what it is designed to do. It would set a precedent that would bankrupt most manufacturers, not just those of guns.

No manufacturer can withstand being held accountable for the criminal misuse of their products by other people.

No such lawsuits are being attempted, except against gun manufacturers.  Once the precedent is set, others will follow.  It is the pattern we have seen in tort law for decades.

That is why the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act was passed in 2005.

Numerous cities were using tax money to sue firearms manufacturers for the “crime” of existing.  The purpose was to drive the manufacturers to bankruptcy.

The stated purpose was to bankrupt firearms companies using the unlimited checkbook of taxpayers to file suit after suit, after suit, requiring an expensive defense against all, until the companies were bankrupted.  From philly.com in 1998:

“The chances are maximized if enough cities file at one time,” Rendell said. “The sheer cost of defending these suits would be hard for the gun industry.”

Of course, firearm manufacturers would not be the only manufacturers affected.

The logic is obvious.  If gun manufacturers, producing legal products, already heavily regulated, can be sued for the criminal misuse of their products, so can GM.  So can Ford.  So can McDonalds. It is hard to find a manufacturer who could not be sued in such a hypothetical situation.

Bernie Sanders understood this, and was castigated by Hillary for the obvious truth.

But this is not a play for people who examine claims logically.  It is a play for an emotional response to a false claim.

Hillary's claim is that the ability to destroy innocent gun manufacturers would somehow protect the victims of criminals.  It is not true.

In Europe, mass killings occur with as much frequency as in the United States, even though the arms that are used have been outlawed there for decades.

The Progressive's gun control schemes have always been emotional instead of fact based.

The public has become more adept at seeing through these emotion based claims.  Republicans and Independents are less likely to be fooled, but Hillary's Democrat base is still susceptible.

This is best seen as an attempt to bring out the emotionally driven vote, especially of the Democrat base. It has the risk of ramping up the vote of  Second Amendment supporters as well.  There are probably seven times as many committed Second Amendment Supporters as committed gun haters.

But most of those are already committed to voting against Hillary Clinton, or for her.  Will Hillary's tweet make much difference?  Probably not.

But Hillary's tweet does much to verify the NRA claim that Hillary wishes to destroy the viability of the Second Amendment.  It is hard to exercise Second Amendment rights when gun manufacturers have been sued out of existence.

The PLCAA protects legal manufacturers from irrational, predatory lawsuits, designed to circumvent the democratic process.  Destroying that protection will do nothing to protect families from violent criminals.

    Exactly, remember the BLITZ gas cans? HRC wants the same thing to happen to firearms companies.

    The company had so many lawsuits and won them but could no longer afford to stay in business and fight so they just shut the company down.

    Blitz USA is based in Miami, Okla., and is was largest manufacturer of portable gas cans in the country.

    It is incomprehensible that Hillary may be our next POTUS instead of being in jail. When an inanimate object is blamed for someones bad behavior then that is a dark day in the US.

    All said, govt, is way to powerful and has no regard for we the people. Congress won’t go after hiLIARy because the think it will cost them their jobs in the next election. That is the most important thing to them. The vote is the only means we have to stop all this, with the exception of civil war. It won’t be cleaned up over night because it didn’t happen overnight but we have to start NOW before it is all gone. Let’s fire them all, one at a time, and take our country back.

    Sandy Hook school shooting was another government produced false flag created to destroy our Second Amendment Rights. The Sandy Hook tragedy never happened. Sandy Hook school was supposed to the the site for a FEMA exercise and government anti gun rights politicians decided to use it as a government produced story about a school shooting and use their production as an excuse to disarm innocent Americans. View the You Tube “Innocents Betrayed” to see what happens when a government is allowed to disarm their citizens.

    If Hillary gets her way, they’ll be a lot more rich ambulance chasers. Currently, sanity prevails somewhat in the court system, in that Ford doesn’t get sued when someone gets run over. The driver is aptly blamed and held responsible. But when a manufacturer of an inanimate firearm can be sued for the abuse of their product, that will throw open the door for the makers of any object to be sued. Gerber will get sued because someone was stabbed by one of their knives. Ford will get sued because someone used their car to run someone over. Stanley will… Read more »

    It is “incompressible” that we allow people vote for those “sworn” to uphold the U.S. Constitution work to destroy this very document written to protect everyone’s rights!

    Of course this from a women who is protected by the government from the Secret Service who carry guns to protect her ass. I say if she want guns banned then lets start with her. Take her damn gaurds guns away and let see just how fast the bitch changes her mine. I but as soon as some one got to close to her she would be the first one to open her two faced mouth to shoot the person. She is nothing more than a hypocrite and a murderer, and a treasonous bitch and needs to be in jail… Read more »

    Since I was ran over by a drunk , I could sue the caer makers , the bars , the , stores that sell booze , the gas station that sold the gas to enable a drunk driver at 55 mph to hit a person walking off the side of the road. This would be the equivalent of suing the firearm manufacturers which makes no sense, BLAME THE CRIMINAL. Lets trace back all of Hillary’s arms deals in the Mid East , like Qatar , stinger missiles that went to Taliban , Libya , arms that went to ISIS. Let’s… Read more »

    I would also ban knifes, spoons, forks all which could be used to kill people. This is getting ridiculous. If firearms are being used by idiots then go after them and their families. I believe Hillary is just using these things as a bargaining chip in her crusade to ban guns. The problem with that is once you give in on one thing then they will just go after another bargaining chip to ban something else.
