Gun Control Group Files New Lawsuits to Make A Point
Submitted by: Bruce W. Krafft

Post Comments | Read Comments

 
"A gun control group on Thursday announced it is filing two new lawsuits against gun makers and gun dealers on behalf of crime victims."

"The timing of the lawsuits is politically motivated: The Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence strongly opposes legislation, being debated in the Senate this week, that would protect the gun industry from lawsuits arising from the criminal misuse of their products."

"Second Amendment supporters say such lawsuits are back-door gun control -- intended to ruin gun makers financially."

"But anti-gun groups say the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (S. 397) will deprive crime victims' families of their legal rights." ...

"A recent Brady Center news release appearing on U.S. Newswire describes a new lawsuit filed by lawyers with the Brady Center against firearms manufacturer Sturm, Ruger and American Gun and Lock, a Philadelphia firearms dealer that allegedly sold a firearm that was later involved in a criminal shooting. This lawsuit is another example of why S. 397, 'The Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act,' must be enacted."

"The Brady Center's release states in part, 'The lawsuit also includes claims against Sturm, Ruger, the manufacturer of the gun who continued to supply American Gun.' The Brady Center is fully aware, however, that Sturm, Ruger does not sell its products to retailers in the normal course of business. ..." ...

"In an astonishingly irresponsible maneuver, US Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-TN) stopped floor debate yesterday on a crucial Defense Department authorization bill in order to allow immediate consideration of the pet project of the gun lobby, S.397, a bill to grant nearly wholesale immunity from civil liability to gun manufacturers, distributors and dealers. S.397 would also lessen the ability of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) to discipline reckless gun dealers." ...

"Calling his comments the height of hypocrisy, the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) today blasted Connecticut Senator Christopher Dodd (D) for his efforts to defeat legislation that would protect gun manufacturers -- and Connecticut jobs -- from junk lawsuits. The Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (S. 397) being debated on the Senate floor will provide relief from lawsuits that seek to hold gun manufacturers responsible when their products are used by criminals in the commission of a crime. There are five gun manufacturers located in Connecticut that collectively employ thousands of workers either directly or through the manufacturing supply chain." ...

"More than two years ago, my good friend from Idaho, Larry Craig, introduced a bill in the U.S. Senate to protect law-abiding firearms manufacturers and dealers from being held responsible for the criminal actions of third parties."

"... Senators on both sides of the aisle recognize, as do the vast majority of Americans, that these ridiculous lawsuits are really all about shoving a social agenda — firearms prohibition — through the courts. ..." ...

"... Do you believe that Ford Motor Company should be dragged into court and held responsible for damage to life caused by drunk drivers? Do you believe that Callaway Golf should be held accountable because someone was assaulted with one of that company's Big Bertha irons? Of course you don't." ...

"In an effort to make the upcoming Senate vote on tort reform for firearm manufacturers appear as nothing more than a squabble between political parties, MSNBC ran an AP story on July 26 leading with:"

"Senate Republicans on Tuesday moved the National Rifle Association’s top priority ahead of a $491 billion defense bill, setting up a vote on legislation to shield firearms manufacturers and dealers from lawsuits over gun crimes.[1]"

"Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein was quoted in the same article:"

"What’s happening on this gun liability bill is really despicable. To put that ahead of the defense bill, I think, is the most distorted priorities I can possibly conceive of." ...

"When Nascar racer Ryan Newman ran the fastest lap at the Texas Motor Speedway earlier this year, a member of Italy's Beretta family was waiting in victory lane, armed with a marketing strategy: a 12-gauge shotgun etched with Mr. Newman's image and valued at $65,000."

"When grizzled gun dealers gathered for their big annual Shooting, Hunting, Outdoor Trade Show in Las Vegas last January, they found themselves rubbing holsters with a decidedly different demographic: people who play and profit from the booming sport of paintball."

"Experiencing sluggish sales largely because hunters represent an aging demographic, the $2 billion-a-year gun industry has launched bolder marketing pitches to attract novices into the world of weaponry. Gun makers see potential growth in the self-defense, security and target-shooting markets, and the young, edgy, camouflage-clad Gen Y crowd is squarely in the cross hairs." ...

"Dr. Leslie P. King's essay on gun control ('A new aim,' July 24) is not to be taken seriously, except as a friendly expression of her personal feelings. Notice that Dr. King is an emergency physician, as this group is over represented among gun-control advocates. Their duties expose them to so many gun injuries that they lose perspective and forget guns are far down the list of public health threats." ...

"It's exhilarating. It's strenuous. It's overwhelming. One minute you're breathing pumped-in oxygen, and the next you're in a huge building full of re-circulated air lacking oxygen. It wears on you. But it's always a special time spent with special friends. It's the Shooting, Hunting and Outdoor Trade Show, commonly known as SHOT, and it's been held in Las Vegas, Nevada, off and on for years."

"I look forward to SHOT every year because I can't wait to see old friends and new gear. The amount of stuff there is awe-inspiring, and there's really no way to see it all, even if you're there for the whole affair--guns, ammo, hunting gear, cutlery, clothing and just about everything in between. It's bigger each year--almost a half-million square feet this year, a record." ...

FULL TEXT BELOW:

A resident told police he used his concealed gun to chase away a knife-wielding robber in downtown St. George.

The resident suffered a minor cut on his neck, police Lt. Mark Brklacich said.

He said the man had cashed a check at about 1:45 p.m. Tuesday at the EZ Cash drive-up window. As he pulled into traffic, he saw a man near a dark SUV waving him over.

Thinking the man was having car problems and needed help, he pulled over.

The resident said the assailant approached him, put a knife against his neck and demanded money.

But the resident "reached down and pulled out his concealed weapon and pointed it toward the suspect," Brklacich said.

The robber ran back to his own vehicle and drove away. He remained at large.

He is considered dangerous and is still on the loose after robbing a First Merit bank in Worthington on July 20th." ...

"Of the many good things that can be said of Brookline, perhaps Keith Langer said it best. [Brookline Police] are known to be 'somewhat obstructionist in their [gun] licensing practices.'"

"Maybe this is the reason Brookline's rate of violence is as low as it is."

"Guns can be stolen, sold, used purposefully, accidentally - they are not water bottles to be carried around indiscriminately. They should be carried by law enforcement people and any others that the authorities think it is necessary for protection and security."

"The United States Army allowed Army Specialist David Bardfield to carry a pistol only when he was on specific duties. If they thought he needed target practice, let us hope they would have demanded he spend time on the range." ...

"Gearing up to attend a woman's instructional shooting clinic — one sponsored by the National Rifle Association (NRA), no less — I was skeptical. Scared, even. This is an organization demonized by the left, dominated by Republican males, and lauded by Charlton Heston.

I certainly didn't expect to enjoy myself. Was this all part of the group's plan?" ...

There are a lot of people, as you know, who purchase guns so that they can go out and commit crimes,' he says." ...

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.' The right of the whole people, old and young, men, women and boys, and not militia only, to keep and bear arms of every description, and not such merely as are used by the militia, shall not be infringed, curtailed, or broken in upon, in the smallest degree; and all this for the important end to be attained: the rearing up and qualifying a well-regulated militia, so vitally necessary to the security of a free State. Our opinion is that any law, State or Federal, is repugnant to the Constitution, and void, which contravenes this right. [Nunn vs. State, 1 Ga. (1 Kel.) 243, at 251 (1846)]
