In the news lately is the case in Connecticut where the State Supreme Court has decided to hoist its middle digit in defiance of the federal law that protects firearms manufacturers and dealers from being held liable when crimes have been committed with their products. This law is known as the PLCAA or Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (enacted in 2005). See HERE.
The PLCAA was Congress’ reaction to tyrannical, anti-freedom liberal Democrats that decided since they could not get in congress the complete disarmament of their fascist, totalitarian dreams they would essentially promote – support – encourage the harassment of firearms manufacturers and dealers with dubious law suits until it cost them so much, win or lose, that they would be forced to shut down. Despite the outright lies told by many of the Democrat presidential hopefuls, Hillary being the most egregious among them, the law does not, nor did it ever, grant immunity from liability for defective products or for a manufacturer that is illegally producing or selling firearms.
