If you can’t beat ’em, bankrupt them-at least that’s the motivation behind the latest Left wing legislation targeting the Second Amendment. Introduced by House and Senate Democrats on Tuesday, the Equal Access to Justice for Victims of Gun Violence Act will allow victims of gun violence to sue firearms and ammunition manufacturers, dealers, and trade groups when a firearm is used unlawfully or in a crime. Lawrence Keane of the National Shooting Sports Foundation told NPR that the legislation is “fundamentally unfair” given that “You would no more blame Ford or General Motors for drunk driving accidents.” Which is true, but reason and truth never stop the Leftist Gestapo.

House and Senate Democrats introduced legislation Tuesday they say will allow victims of gun violence to have their day in court.
The Equal Access to Justice for Victims of Gun Violence Act aims to repeal federal protections blocking firearm and ammunition manufacturers, dealers and trade groups from most civil lawsuits when a firearm is used unlawfully or in a crime.
Those protections date to 2005, with the passage of the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act.
Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., one of the bill’s co-sponsors, said since PLCAA became law, state and federal courts have “dismissed numerous cases against the gun industry,” adding that other cases were likely not brought at all.
