Like a good left-wing Democrat, Joe Biden plans to bankrupt the firearms industry if he actually becomes president and Democrats manage to steal the two U.S. Senate seats up for grabs in Georgia during January run-off elections.
How you ask?
Simple. Allow firearms makers to get sued out of business.
Breitbart News firearms correspondent Awr Hawkins writes:
Former Vice President Joe Biden's plan to do away with the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA) could bankrupt the entire firearms industry.
President George W. Bush signed the PLCAA into law in 2005 as a way of protecting firearms manufacturers from frivolous lawsuits. But Biden campaigned on opening up firearm manufacturers to suits tied to the criminal misuse of the products they make.
On February 7, 2020, Breitbart News reported Biden telling a New Hampshire audience it was a 'mistake' to give 'gun manufacturers … a loophole that does not allow them to be sued for the carnage they are creating.'
He added, 'The first thing I'm going to do as president is work to get rid of that, and it's going to be hard.'
On February 24, 2020, Breitbart News reported that Biden looked into the camera during a South Carolina speech, called out gun manufacturers, and said, 'I'm going to take you down.'
Senior vice president of the Gun Owners of America, Erich Pratt, told the Daily Caller News Foundation: '[Biden's plan] means that gun manufacturers could ultimately be put out of business through frivolous lawsuits.
“It's totally irresponsible, imagine holding Ford or GM responsible for the damage caused by hit-and-run drivers. We wouldn't tolerate that and yet that's exactly the type of legal theory they're trying to put on gun manufacturers,” he said.
Adds Kevin Jamison, a Missouri self-defense lawyer and firearms trainer, 'The guys pushing these lawsuits, they don't care if they win. They care if they can force these companies to hemorrhage money. They are in the business of putting gun companies out of business.'
The Daily Caller adds that there is already legal precedent to sue lawmakers despite the PLCAA:
Remington Arms Company, which has been producing firearms since 1816, went bankrupt in late September after the corporation was sued by the families of the victims involved in the deadly 2012 Sandy Hook school shooting, according to Fox Business. The gunman used a Bushmaster, a sub-company of Remington, AR-15 during the shooting, Fox reported.
The families argued that the Bushmaster XM15-E2X 'posed an unreasonable and egregious risk of physical risk to others' and insisted that the 200-year-old gun company was negligent in selling the weapon to civilians, according to WBUR. Outdoor retail giant Cabela's was also sued in early November for selling ammunition to a 19-year-old who accidentally killed a friend with a handgun, The Buffalo News reported.
So, how many more times must Democrats prove they hate our Constitution and country as founded?
Biden's inflation is GETTING WORSE by the month...
Around the world, supply chains continue to be disrupted. Delays are now commonplace. And they're going to get worse.
There IS a financial reset coming - that's just true. All the signs indicate as much.
