Good News For Supporters Of The Second Amendment

According to this (http://www.humaneventsonline.com/article.php?id=8279) online Human Events article S.397, the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act should have enough support to pass when it comes up for a vote. I just hope that a few anti-gunners don't ruin a good piece of legislation by attaching anti-gun ownership amendments to it. That's what got the bill defeated last time. So once again I want to ask you to contact your United States Senators (http://www.senate.gov/) and urge them to support S.397 as it was written, amendment free.

God Bless America, God Save The Republic.

I think that the technique's used to get this bill to the floor of the Senate for a vote were simply outrageous. Instead of finishing debating the defense spending authorization bill, Sen. Frist interrupted that debate to bring up this one. So, in a time of war, he said screw the soldiers, we can get back to them after our August vacation and worry about the NRA and gun lobby right now.

Chris, I still support S.937, but I don't think they should have put off taking action on the defense bill. The only thing I had read about it was a comment made by Sen. Reed D-R.I., so I contacted Sen.Frist to see what he has to say. I'll let you know when I get an answer.

God Bless America, God Save The Republic

The Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA) is a United States law which protects firearms manufacturers and dealers from being held liable when crimes have been committed with their products. However, both manufacturers and dealers can still be held liable for damages resulting from defective products, breach of contract, criminal misconduct, and other actions for which they are directly responsible in much the same manner that any U.S. based manufacturer of consumer products is held responsible. They may also be held liable for negligence when they have reason to know a gun is intended for use in a crime.
