This has been tried before. If this makes it to the supreme court it will be over turned as the others have.

So they want to sue somebody for selling something legally to somebody who was legally allowed to purchase it. Sue them for WHAT, exactly?

The thing with this shooting is that even if he didn't shoot anyone, if he stole the guns, drove to the school, shot out the door and laid down on the ground, he still would have committed enough felonies to lock him up for the rest of his life. To look at that and go "Clearly we need more laws!" is beyond stupid.

The next time a terrorist uses a car to run over pedestrians, I guess we should sue the manufacturer of the car?

It will go to the SCOTUS where it should be reversed. 28 USC 1257.

So I guess when that kid in elementary school stuck a plastic fork in my hand, my parents should have sued the plastic utensil manufacturer....

Makes sense.

Rest assured, the left has made it patently clear this approach, whether it has any actual merit or not, will become the preferred strategy to undermining the 2A.

Still, it's the gun's fault.

I can't find the article but it was a masterful treatise on the three-pronged assault taking place on the 2a...

In short:

1) Outlaw as broad a spectrum of firearms possible that can be obtained by citizens
2) Severely limit the people that can obtain firearms by various methods including unilaterally constricting the definition of who is fit to purchase firearms.
3) For the few people left that can purchase the watered down firearms, make the system to do so so onerous that they will basically give up.

I would add a fourth:

4) If a firearm is used in a defensive situation make justifying it so socially, legally and financially debilitating as to make it unpalatable..

Even if they win it is thrown out on appeal. There is a federal based law on this the NRA sponsored.

Ok......... Why stop at the gun manufacturer? Might as well sue the bullet manufacturer & the gun powder manufacturer? Hell, sue the manufacturer of the car that he drove to the school.
