    The only time a gun manufacturer should be held liable is if there is a manufacturing defect that they should have or did know about and it causes the gun to misfire and kill someone.

    This is nothing but grandstanding, it would never pass, but the democrats can say "see we want to help you but the republicans wont' let us!"

    Even if such a bill passed into law, it would be struck down the by the justice system. There is no conceivable way you can blame the manufacturer for someone using their product illegally.

    Atheism is the cult of death, the death of hope. The universe is doomed, you are doomed, the only thing that remains is to await your execution...

    Wouldn't have to. If it even got to a trial, it would probably be appealed up to SCOTUS and overturned.

    Ah looking at the bill:
    https://schiff.house.gov/imo/media/doc/One-pager.pdf

    They are being really sneaky. They are not trying to pass a new law, but to repeal an old one. The one that protects firearm manufacturers from frivolous civil suits. The goal is that once repealed the firearms manufacturers would be inundated with frivolous suits, which even if the plaintiffs didn't have a chance to win, would cost the gun manufacturers so much that they would either be driven out of business or would have to charge so much for their guns that no one could afford them.

    Kinda like suing the cake baker over and over, even if you lose, it costs him money to defend himself.
    Every problem is the result of a previous solution.

    That's what the school system was hoping would happen to ME when they had me arrested for homeschooling back in the early 80's. The then Texas Attorney General had put out word that middle income and lower homeschoolers in "rich" school districts should be prosecuted. One of the Christian recipients of that memo forwarded it to me, and I was prepared to use it at my trial.

    A gun is a weapon, a motor car is not. People need to appreciate that there is a causal link between the gun company’s profit and these, here, dead folks. When you buy a gun, thus sustaining the gun manufacturer, and delighting the NRA, you are simultaneously buying a dead person, or part thereof, only, the corpse is not packed with the gun, because of the smell.

    A gun doesn't always have to be used as a weapon, nor can it harm anybody on its own.
    It actually happens that 'motor cars' are, indeed, used as weapons. Even jihadist ones!

    You really are amusing at times.

    Guns don't kill people, bullets do.
