Break The Firearms Industry? New York Bill Could Do It.

A New York bill introduced in the legislature is designed to skirt the PLCAA by defining the “misuse” of guns as a “nuisance.” If someone misuses a gun, the new bill allows people to sue the gun business. The whole purpose of the PLCAA was to prevent such ridiculous lawsuits. But due to the large faction of Democrats in the New York legislature, a bill introduced by NY State Sen Zellnor Myrie could pass. They want to break the firearms industry.

Breaking the firearms industry

The federal Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act gave gun companies immunity from suits over the illegal use of their products. But it contained some exceptions, such as when they violate laws relating to “the sale or marketing of the product.”

Myrie’s bill would categorize the misuse of guns as a nuisance.

Industry members could be sued for actions that “recklessly create, maintain or contribute to a condition in New York state that endangers the safety or health of the public through the sale, manufacturing, importing, or marketing of” a gun.

“There is no question in my mind that this is a public health crisis and a public nuisance that should be dealt with accordingly,” he said. “They have a business model that is predicated on their products flowing into the illegal market, and although they are loosely regulated in other states, the blood that is spilled ends up being the kids in Brownsville and Rochester and Albany, and I don’t think New Yorkers should accept that.”


Once again, Democrats are not targeting the criminals, whom they let out of jail without even a penny of bail, by the way. New Jersey also has a similar measure. Democrats appear to view law-abiding gun owners as the great evil of the universe … and especially the firearms industry.

In other words, if a criminal steals a gun or buys it on the black market and then uses it in a carjacking, Myrie wants the gun maker to be sued because they made and marketed the firearm…

This is not a “standard” that other states should use. It’s doubtful that red states will do so. But it’s almost a sure bet that New York and New Jersey will follow it. The bill would not make anyone safer. It would simply kill the firearms industry.
