Here we go. My explanation for how stupid they think all of us are.

They want to kill gun manufacturers with liability lawsuits, which are STUPID, by design.

They compare it to big pharma selling a bad drug, or big auto selling a car with a bad airbag. This is bullshit.

If the airbag, OR WHATEVER, in your car, is defective in some way, and it causes injury by failing to function properly, then they are, and should be, liable for the defect in the product.

If a drug company sells a drug that kills or harms people in an unintended way, then they are, and should be, liable for that defective product.

Merck is not responsible, and should not be liable, if someone takes an overdose of one of their drugs with the intent of killing themselves, and they shouldn't be held accountable even if the family of the suicide idiot sues them for it.

General Motors is not responsible, and should not be liable, if someone drives one of their vehicles up onto a sidewalk, mowing down pedestrians. Like that crazy bitch did in Las Vegas recently.

If Remington sells a rifle with a defective chamber, and it blows up in someones face when they fire it, then they are liable for the defective product. They should not be liable if someone takes a Remington rifle and uses it to kill someone in any act of illegal homicide.

The new gun control effort, which is being debated by the democrats. The way they're discussing it is a clear sign of just how stupid they think all of us are.

New bill would let gun violence victims sue firearm manufacturers

Democrats are trying to pass a bill that would hold gun makers liable for crimes committed with the weapons that they produced or sold. Passing the legislation will be an uphill battle in a Republican-controlled Congress.

The law would reverse protections by the gun industry granted by the Lawful Commerce in Arms Act of 2005, which shields it from litigation over gun crimes.

“If you’re a carmaker and your airbags kill someone, you’re potentially liable,” Rep. Adam Schiff (D-California) told The Hill in an interview. “If you’re a pharmaceutical company and sell faulty drugs, you can be held liable. If you’re a liquor store and sell alcohol to minors, you can be held liable."

“Why should it be any different for gun manufacturers?” Schiff, one of the lawmakers behind the bill, asked.

Opponents of the Equal Access to Justice for Victims of Gun Violence Act argue that car manufacturers are only held liable when vehicles malfunction, not people are killed by drivers. They and say that the new law will leave gun manufacturers open to frivolous lawsuits, an outcome that the original law was designed to stop.

Co-sponsors Schiff and Rep. Adam Blumenthal (D-Connecticut), concede that the proposal will be very difficult to pass in a Republican-controlled Congress.

“It’s much the same as any gun violence prevention bill,” Blumenthal told The New York Times. “But it’s profoundly important.”

But while the bill may not be passed into law, it’s serving as an important locus of debate in the Democratic presidential primary. Hillary Clinton has long tried to claim that Bernie Sanders, who is now neck-and-neck with her in polls, is weak on gun control. Before the Sunday democratic debate, the Clinton campaign used the fact that he voted for the liability-shielding law that Democrats are trying to repeal to attack the Vermont senator.

"The Clinton campaign welcomes Senator Sanders' debate-eve conversion, reversing his vote to immunize gun manufacturers," Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta said in a tweet Saturday, implying that Sanders had flip-flopped on the issue, since he has come out in support of the new legislation.

Sanders, however, refuted the claim that he had been inconsistent on the issue, saying that he supports the new legislation, but only if it includes provisions to avoid “unintended consequences” that he originally supported the original liability-limiting measure to prevent.

“As I have said, I do want to make sure that this legislation does not negatively impact small gun stores in rural America that serve the hunting community,” he said. “So I’m pleased to support the legislation and should it come up for consideration I would work to make sure it includes a provision that allows us to monitor its impact so that we may determine if it is having any unintended consequences.”

I don't believe anyone claimed that an executive order reclassifying who is a firearms dealer is going to solve all of the issues regarding firearms sales.

While I do not have an issue with the content of the order discussed here, what I see as an issue is the president being able to make a "law" without having it go through Congress. Executive orders are nothing new, with one exception, every president has issued Executive Orders. The number varies from 1 to 3,522. The one exception was Harrison who died after being in office for about 1 month.

Heroin use has almost doubled in the past 7 years. In 2014, well over 10,000 people died from heroin overdose. Heroin use is "ILLEGAL"!!!!! Those laws have not stopped it's use or people dying from it. Does anyone truly believe more gun laws will help anything? If you do..... you are only kidding yourself.

Like has been said before... has nothing to do with crime or the safety of the people. All to do with the safety of the State.

All that would do is encourage the assholes to steal the guns from the rich.

According to the original poster we already own 30% OF THE FIREARMS IN THE WORLD. I dont think closing our borders is going to affect what is already within our borders. I think the price of guns and ammo should be set to begin at a minimum 5 figured number....if you have to pay as much to own a car as you do to have a gun then maybe that would change some things....but then again almost everyone has a car too....but not everyone has a Bentley

Sexy, NO, NO, NO, You say, "The main problem is criminal gangs killing each other" Help them KILL each other, it helps to solve the problem. Give the gangs guns that shoot both ways. This way when they shoot they will also shoot themselves. We can't fix stupid. I have no worry if they all kill each other.

You're right Nud. Trump would do a hell of a lot more to slow down gun violence by closing the border than any stupid new laws that won't work. The main problem is criminal gangs killing each other. Take the drugs away, and a large number of the gang killings will stop. I have read that about half of the people killed by gunfire are suicides. Does anybody know the percentage of the total killed in drug wars?
