California: Bill Filed to Harass Firearm Industry With Lawsuits

California is attempting to pass a bill that would endlessly harass gun companies with frivolous lawsuits. IMG NRA-ILA

U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- On Monday, the California Legislature opened and went right to work on pushing their gun control agenda. Assembly Member Phil Ting (D-19) introduced Assembly Bill 1594, to allow civil lawsuits against the firearm industry under vague conditions.

Assembly Bill 1594 declares that a firearm industry member “shall have created or maintained a public nuisance… if their failure to follow federal, state, or local law caused injury or death or if the gun industry member engaged in unfair business practices.”

Existing federal and state laws already heavily regulate the firearm industry and the laws allow for stiff penalties for violations. This is the latest salvo in gun control advocates’ long-running effort to circumvent the federal Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA), which ensures Americans have reasonable access to firearms.​ The PLCAA does not prohibit lawsuits against the firearm industry for knowingly unlawful sales, for negligent entrustment, and on traditional products liability grounds.

Please stay tuned to www.nraila.org and your email inbox for further updates on this bill and others affecting Second Amendment rights in California.

Please print all these new laws out and mail them in bulk around the country. We will need them when the next toilet paper shortage occurs .

This is silly, because federal law already limits these kinds of suits. As with cars and tools, you can’t sue a firearm manufacturer or dealer for a criminal’s use of a firearm unless they knowingly provided a gun to a person they knew would use it in a crime. There is currently a case on appeal where an Obama appointee judge ignored that law, but he will be slapped down post haste.

I would pay per view their hangings. It’s definitely worth $75 to watch that.

Wild Bill

then we should be able to sue the vax producers and social media sites for mental health

Dee

Only thing is Trump has money and support tied to the vax producers and all social media companies are based in California.

and ??

Wild Bill

Are you suggesting some kind of guilt by association?

Dee

All I’m saying is pushing that agenda goes against the former president. And California is so far “left” that they won’t push their state laws against their own social media companies. Kinda like Texas who pushed “right” ideologies on their citizens i.e. abortion, gerrymandering districts, gun rights(which I love), and others. I’m assuming both states have their rights to pose any of their ideas if they have the votes in legislation to do so.

Bubba

You mean the Constitutional rights they pushed in Texas…
What California and New York do is so far out of whack with the Constitution it’s laughable.
