    When I stop laughing I have to pause to think just how idiotically stupid this is.


    Do we hold car makers accountable for all vehicle deaths?


    Do we go after distillers for the deaths caused by their beverages?


    We also make big Pharma pay up for every prescription drug related death?


    Democratic lawmakers introduced legislation Tuesday to hold gun manufacturers liable for crimes committed with their products.

    The measure, introduced in both the House and Senate, seeks to repeal legislation passed in 2005 that enacted litigation protections for the gun industry, National Public Radio reported.

    Responsible actors in the gun industry don’t need this limitation on liability. And the irresponsible ones don’t deserve it,” California Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff, one of the bill’s co-sponsors, said at a press conference Tuesday.

    Victims of gun violence deserve their day in court.

    Adam Schiff (@RepAdamSchiff) June 11, 2019
    All we’re doing through this proposal is giving victims of gun violence their day in court,” said Connecticut Democratic Sen. Richard Blumenthal, co-sponsor of the bill’s Senate version.

    BREAKING:
    Forks to be banned because spaghetti may cause high cholesterol, and therefore lead to heart disease and death. More details as they become available.

    This isn't a good example of needed gun control, it's a good example of needed lawsuit control in this country.

    Grandstanding nonsense that doesn’t have a chance in the Senate. At least everyone gets a chance to mug for the cameras.

    Yep, that's all this is about. Big show, just like when Republicans voted to get rid of Commie Care about 50 times.

    Anyone advocating for such should be immediately executed.

    I think they should get wall to wall news coverage. The left is always saying they don't want all our guns. Well, if you sue gun manufacturers out of business, where would we get them?

    Tell the country. Tell the world. This is what liberals stand on: disarming the American public. They don't care about our safety, they don't care about the deaths it will cause, all they care about is getting their way, just like with illegal immigration. Americans simply don't count to these people.
