A liberal activist judge is green lighting a lawsuit against Remington, the gun manufacturer of the weapon used in the Sandy Hook mass shooting. Manufacturers are protected by the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act, but this judge wants the lawsuit to proceed in this politically turbulent year.
Gun manufacturers have no influence over those who purchase their products, but apparently anti-Second Amendment activists are pushing this lawsuit.
This doesn’t make sense. Are Ford or GM responsible if their cars are driven by drunk drivers? NO! Any lawsuit asserting that nonsense would be tossed out. But since this case involves firearms in an important election year, Judge Barbara Bellis is allowing it to proceed. See the video below for more information.
This highlights how important good judges are. Judges are to rule on the law rather than create it. And it also shows how important this election is. With an empty seat on the Supreme Court following Justice Antonin Scalia’s sudden death, the next president will have an important job filling the vacancy. And that appointment can have long term consequences on the judicial system for 30 years, given the balance of powers, not the court. Issues like the Second Amendment could swing from the conservative side to the liberal side if a gun grabbing Justice is appointed by Hillary Clinton.
