This court ruling just became the biggest threat to gun rights since Obama was in office
President Trump may be in the White House, but that doesn’t mean gun-grabbers have given up chipping away at the Second Amendment.
And they may have just received an upper hand.
This court ruling could effectively destroy the Second Amendment overnight.
Liberals have realized they can’t outright ban guns.
Which is why they have turned to creative gun-confiscation schemes such as the so-called “assault weapons” ban or “mental health background checks.”
Traditionally, the courts have not sided with gun-control activists and have upheld the Second Amendment.
But all of that just changed.
The Connecticut Supreme Court has ruled that the victims of a mass shooting may sue the firearms manufacturer for liability.
The Connecticut Supreme Court ruled 4-3 that the suit against the manufacturer of the stolen AR-15 used in the Sandy Hook shooting can proceed.
The attacker in the December 14, 2012, shooting took the Bushmaster rifle from his mother, killed her, then took the AR-15 and other stolen guns to school and killed 26 others.
The suit is against Remington, which is the parent company of Bushmaster, and it was filed in October 2014. It was dismissed two years later, in October 2016, by Connecticut Superior Court Judge Barbara Bellis.
Bellis dismissed the case in light of the 2005 Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA), which protects gun manufacturers from being sued in instances where the gun in question was legally made and sold. The Bushmaster was legally made and sold to Nancy Lanza, prior to it being stolen and used in a crime.
If gun manufacturers are held responsible for the acts of criminals, they may be forced to close their doors.
That could make access to firearms for law-abiding citizens nearly impossible in the future.
Leftists are trying to do everything in their power to get rid of all firearms.
But you won’t see them blaming car manufacturers for a radical Islamic terrorist plowing through a crowd of people.
If the gun-grabbers get their way and this ruling holds up, the Second Amendment could be in grave danger.
