In 2005, President George W. Bush signed the Protection of Lawful Commerce of Arms Act (PLCAA), passed by Congress. The act protects gun manufacturers and dealers from liability for the actions committed by criminals using firearms….
In the wake of the shootings at Umpqua Community College in Oregon, liberals are once again attacking the Second Amendment rights of law abiding Americans. Hillary Clinton just declared that as president she would work to repeal the Protection of Lawful Commerce of Arms Act so that all gun manufacturers and dealers could be held liable for the actions of criminals using their firearms.
Think about this for a moment. Using Hillary’s logic, then we should pass laws to make auto manufacturers and dealers responsible when someone uses a vehicle in the commission of a crime. Ford, General Motors, Chrysler, Toyota, Honda, etc. should be liable when someone intentionally runs someone else over or wrecks a car and injuries others after a high speed chase with police. It sound absurd, but that’s the exact same logic that Hillary is using against gun manufacturers and dealers.
