How to Ban Guns Without Banning Guns

Tyrants don’t need gun laws — not if they have lawsuits. Statist John Culhane, a law school professor writing in Slate, wants to repeal the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act:

[T]he PLCAA eliminated most tort claims anyone might bring against the manufacturers and other sellers of guns, and did so for past and well as future misconduct.

This spoiled the fun for Culhane, who had been developing an argument that

people injured by gun violence, and cities bearing the financial cost of that violence, should be able to sue sellers. David Kairys at Temple Law School was making similar arguments. And courts had started to see things our way.

Why wouldn’t they? Courts are overwhelmingly dominated by authoritarian liberals.

Suing everyone in sight when someone gets shot by a criminal would allow libs to loot every link of the supply chain — manufacturers, distributors, and dealers — driving all of them out of business with the gargantuan jackpots often awarded in tobacco suits. A large percentage of the proceeds would be kicked back through pathologically greedy trial lawyers into the Democrat Party, which would appoint still more anti-gun judges.

Best of all for liberals, they will be able to argue that they are not directly violating the Constitution. Sure you can have a gun — except no one makes them for private ownership anymore.

Law prof John Culhane wants to sue guns away.

On a tip from Ghost of FA Hayek.

    Law prof John Culhane

    Wow. Another aging flower child/hippie to add to the pile. Each and every one of these arrogant rodents bloviate for untold hours ad nauseum about how unique and “free-thinking” they are; yet NOTHING could be further from the truth. Progressive? Not so much.

  2. Ghost of FA Hayek says:

    The barbarians are still pounding on the gates of this law, which was enacted in 2005
    The latest attack was a Brady Center lawsuit on a gun retailer for damages due to a STOLEN gun.

    This stooge needs to come face-to-face with a criminal intent on rearranging his worldly possessions…or his arrogant face.

    I guess we fight back with filing ethics complaints with the state bar.

    Fair is fair, no?

    Can we sue auto makers for anyone who is injured in car crashes? Airplane makers for air crashes? Knife makers for stabbings? Baseball bat makers for Union knee-capping?

    Question: why do liberal dimwits who want a coercive society always look like punky little girlie-men standing next to a conservative who wants freedom?

  10. Clingtomyguns says:

    I say we ought to allow businesses to be able to sue law schools and law professors under the federal RICO Act, for coming up with criminal schemes to rip off honest folks. If that don’t fly … the court should sentence Culhane to Attica for a little sleepover and scared straight weekend with the black muslim brotherhood. That would do wonders for his fertile legal mind.

    How about a class action suit against Marxist professors for violent brainwashing?

    He looks like he’s about to launch into an anecdote about the time a census taker once tried to test him.

  15. quotes are fun says:

    Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own goodwill torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. ~ CS Lewis

  17. Artfldgr says:

    People killed by someone with a gun in a place where places were closed by such suits, should have the right to sue the lawyer for being responsible for creating that situation.

  18. Artfldgr says:

    I left out “representing people” so as to read People representing people killed… (ie estates and families)… sorry… funny though

  19. askmieke says:

    So, victims families can sue the government for lack of adequate fire power because of limits on gun types and magazine sizes.

  21. Alphamail says:

    Culhane wants to sue guns away cause’ he thinks we want to gun Sue away.

    What’s with the constant liberal back-asswards logic?

  23. Dr. 9 says:

    When you blow the smoke away, what this goofy plan is really about is, wealth redistribution. Take from those who earn it, and give it to those who want it. It’s simply another way of applying the Marxist-in-Chief’s agenda, which is in part, to make all blacks wealthy, and make all Whites poor.

    Shakespeare was right, first thing we do is kill all the lawyers

  25. JP says:

    Mr. Culhane looks like a NWO advocate who thinks “He’s gunna be there to shake your hand and share the land that they’ll be givin’ away when we all live together.” There’s a problem with your logic Grampa, you’re too old. The NWO won’t need “Useless Eaters” or lawyers. There won’t be legal disputes, isn’t that the whole point in a totalitatian regime. What freedoms do you imagine you’ll have?
    Mr. Culhane may want to check out the last book of the Bible however to see how things are really going to turn out. It’s time to get your own house in order Bud and leave the little people alone! Kumbaya.

  26. 762x51 says:

    Based on the picture, I’d say Culhane is having sphincter control issues. Perhaps from all that penetration.

  27. Veritas says:

    Why not just sue politicians who prevent people from defending themselves. Love to be on a jury for a trial like that. What number is after a gazillion?

  28. Veritas says:

    Mr. Culhane looks like Rahm’s dance instructor.

  29. Nicki Thomas says:

    He looks like a fag to me.
