Hillary Refuses to Accept Setback for Leftists Who Want to Sue Gun Makers Out of Existence

A favored strategy for denying us our fundamental right of self-defense is to render the Second Amendment irrelevant by suing gun manufacturers out of existence. This scheme has suffered a setback:

A Connecticut judge has dismissed the lawsuit by Sandy Hook families to attempt to hold a gunmaker responsible in the deadly massacre, saying the company is shielded by a federal law.

The families affected by Adam Lanza’s December 2012 rampage that killed 20 children between 6 and 7 years old and six adults in Newtown say that Remington Outdoor was at least partly liable for the slaughter because it had marketed the military-style AR-15 rifle to civilians like the shooter.

“Military-style” does not refer to the gun’s functionality, but to its superficial appearance.

Remington argued that it did not actually sell the gun to the 20-year-old. The company repeatedly pressed for the suit, one of the country’s highest profile cases against gunmakers, to be dismissed.

Fairfield County Superior Court Judge Barbara Bellis granted the manufacturer’s motion Friday, saying that when Congress passed the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act it wanted to prevent suits against major manufacturers for heinous mass shootings.

This was a no-brainer ruling, but not one that can be taken for granted, since leftists will not accept defeat:

This is why we need for Republicans to hold the House and if possible the Senate, despite calls from the Trump camp not to vote down ballot. These fools have already cost us the White House. Now it is a matter of limiting the damage by preserving what remains of the GOP as a bulwark against Democrats.

    Gee, if only the dems could create a law which prevents crime and criminal activity, then there would be no need for self-defense. Until then, I’m not leaving my life in the hands of people to stupid to understand reality.

  2. Sauer Thirtyeight says:

    If the GOP was actually an effective bulwark against the Democrats – as it was 160 years ago – the Trump phenomenon would never have happened.

    “It’s incomprehensible that our laws would protect gun makers over Sandy Hook families.”

    Well, if that’s incomprehensible to you, then add that to the already lengthy list of things that disqualify you to be President.

    If you are one that believes the Supreme Court is the final arbiter of what
    is lawful and constitutional, then you have believed a lie and a myth that
    Jefferson warned about. The States still retain their rights to this day to defy
    the federal judiciary, which has become an oligarcy. We just need strong
    statesmen as governors and legislatures to make that stand!

    In writing to William Jarvis, Jefferson said, “You seem . . .
    to consider the judges as the ultimate arbiters of all constitutional questions;
    a very dangerous doctrine indeed, and one which would place us under the
    despotism of an oligarchy.”

    The germ of dissolution of our federal government is in the constitution of the federal Judiciary; an irresponsible body (for impeachment is scarcely a scare-crow) working like gravity by night and by day, gaining a little today and a little tomorrow, and advancing its noiseless step like a thief, over the field of jurisdiction, until all shall be

    Thomas Jefferson, Judges as the ultimate arbiters of all constitutional questions would place us under the despotism of an oligarchy….

    Their maxim is “boni judicis est ampliare jurisdictionem,” and their power the more dangerous as they are in office for life, and not responsible, as the other functionaries are, to the elective control.

    The Constitution, in keeping three departments distinct and independent,
    restrains the authority of the judges to judiciary organs, as it does the
    executive and legislative to executive and legislative organs.

    Thomas Jefferson, Letter to William Charles Jarvis, (28 September 1820).

    What do ya mean? They created gun-free zones. That’s worked out well, eh?

    1. a defensive wall.
    synonyms: wall, rampart, fortification, parapet, stockade, palisade, barricade, embankment,

    Walls must be manned to be effective. Take the US – Mexico “fence”. It is largely unmanned so it is as ineffective as if it were nonexistent. So it is with the GOP., which is a framework of ideals which is manned by the enemy who hates those ideals. You don’t tear down the wall, you get rid of the enemy.

    The problem with the GOP is that enemy Progressives have taken control of it. Putting an even bigger Progressive like tRump in charge of it so that he can tear down the framework is not the cure. You cannot defeat an enemy by becoming that enemy.

    That AR is hilarious, does it come with training wheels? No wonder he could only shoot small children, That configuration is good for only one thing, spare parts, LMAO!

  9. 762x51 says:

    Unfortunately, impeachment, judicial or presidential, has become far less effective than a scarecrow because those with whom the power is vested are every bit as corrupt as those they should use it against.

    The Constitution has not failed, those who are trusted with operating it have failed.

    The picture in this article has highlighted one thing. One of the few remaining reliable methods of determining whether you are dealing with a male or a female is male pattern baldness.

  11. Remind me again, how many times the GOP actually stood up to Obama, would you? Hey, I’m sure they will really put Hillary in her place, once we hand her the election and focus on keeping the House and Senate controlled by spineless, self-serving faux-conservatives…

    Please; do the good readers here a favor and stop calling them Democrats. They’ve become nothing less than fascistic communists and domestic terrorists!
