Notorious conspiracy theorist Rep. Adam Schiff joined forces with Senator “Da Nang Dick” Blumenthal this week to introduced bills in the House and Senate that would gut the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act. Allowing victims of “gun violence” to sue gun makers who sold their products lawfully would cripple the firearms industry, if not destroy it.
And that’s exactly the point of the legislation.
“Responsible actors in the gun industry don’t need this limitation on liability. And the irresponsible ones don’t deserve it,” California Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff, one of the bill’s co-sponsors, said at a press conference Tuesday.
“All we’re doing through this proposal is giving victims of gun violence their day in court,” said Connecticut Democratic Sen. Richard Blumenthal, co-sponsor of the bill’s Senate version.
The NRA and the National Shooting Sports Foundation oppose the bill.
“It’s like blaming Ford or General Motors for the negligent use of their cars,” Lawrence Keane, senior vice president of government affairs for the National Shooting Sports Foundation, told The Daily Caller News Foundation. “It is wrong to hold the gun or any other industry liable for the criminal misuse of nondefective products sold lawfully.”

Translation: watch as Da Nang Dick and I try to put the gun industry out of business via abusive litigation for selling legal products. https://t.co/ayJ2xjmN9u
