FAST FIVE: Dems Push Plan To Hold Gunmakers Liable For Mass Shootings
Will Dems push legislation to make General Motors liable for injuries sustained from car accidents involving an '87 Chevette.
On Tuesday, Dems introduced legislation in the House and the Senate that would hold gunmakers liable for crimes involving firearms, the Daily Caller reports.
If passed, the bill would repeal legislation passed in 2005 that enshrined protections for gun manufacturers in federal law.
RIchard “Da Nang Dick” Blumenthal, the Connecticut senator and fellow Trump critic, is one of the bill's co-sponsors.
During comments to reporters on Tuesday, he explained that the bill isn't scapegoating gunmakers for marketing a perfectly legal product, but rather – like Schiff said before – the plan will simply give those who have been shot by deranged individuals soneone else “All we're doing through this proposal is giving victims of gun violence their day in court,” Blumenthal, a co-sponsor of the Senate bikk, said.
