Hillary Clinton is using the tragedy at Sandy Hook for political gain over Bernie Sanders. Yesterday, she tweeted,
@BernieSanders prioritized gun manufacturers’ rights over the parents of the children killed at Sandy Hook.
This is disgusting and it shows how little she cares about the feelings of the people devastated by the shootings. It shows how desperate she is and how low she is willing to go to beat Sanders.
Bernie’s alleged offense is voting against a bill that would have held gun manufacturers liable for murders committed with guns they manufactured. Although I detest guns, I would have voted against the bill because it would hold gun manufacturers strictly liable for producing a product that is legal to sell, possess and use even though they did not sell it to the user or have any knowledge or control regarding the decision to sell it.
Love it or hate it, the Second Amendment is here to stay until such time as it is repealed. That is not going to happen in the foreseeable future, if ever. That means gun manufacturers are going to continue to make and sell guns to gun shops who will sell them to the public for as long as the public is willing and able to buy them.
While we do have laws that hold manufacturers strictly liable for injuries caused by the products they make, the product must be hidden and defective when made. Otherwise, there is no liability.
Hillary is a lawyer and she should know this because it’s taught in every torts class in every law school in the country and torts is a required subject, not an elective.
Voting against a bill that would have been deemed unconstitutional is the right thing to do. Bernie deserves credit, not criticism, for doing the right thing.
Hillary deserves a double helping of criticism, scorn and derision for this cynical and desperate ploy for votes. She is repugnant.
I have said that I will vote for her if she is the democratic nominee because the republican candidates are so repugnant, but I am so disgusted with her that I might have to vote for Dr. Jill Stein.
