Bushmaster Granted Immunity In Newtown Suit


Congress, through the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act … has broadly prohibited lawsuits “against manufacturers, distributors, dealers, and importers of firearms … for the harm solely caused by the criminal or unlawful use of firearm products … by others when the produced functioned as designed and intended.” … The present case seeks damages for harms … that were caused solely by the criminal misuse of a weapon by [the perpetrator of the Newtown slayings]. Accordingly, this action falls squarely within the broad immunity provided by the PLCAA.

Hypocrisy in the Constitution State

In the wake of the Newtown shooting Connecticut passed a bunch of new restrictions on firearms. New information now shows that the people of Newtown, and Connecticut, have flocked to the gun stores and are on pace to double total gun purchases from last year.

From The Daily Caller:

“So far this year, through July 24, more than 91,000 guns were authorized for sale statewide. At that pace, the state will surpass last year’s total by October,” the report continues.

President Lies About Newtown Shooting

The Weekly Standard reports that the President said that the killer used a fully automatic weapon:

Now, over the next couple of months, we’ve got a couple of issues:  gun control.  (Applause.)  I just came from Denver, where the issue of gun violence is something that has haunted families for way too long, and it is possible for us to create common-sense gun safety measures that respect the traditions of gun ownership in this country and hunters and sportsmen, but also make sure that we don’t have another 20 children in a classroom gunned down by a semiautomatic weapon — by a fully automatic weapon in that case, sadly.
