Firearms Manufacturers Upset Over Biden Proposal to Change Law

The left’s hatred for the Second Amendment is hardly breaking news. For as long as they have been able to manipulate news articles that paint guns as the source of all things evil, some progressives have been trying to leverage tragedies in an attempt to destroy one of the foundations that our great nation was built upon.

The PLCAA

In 2005, President George W. Bush signed a bill that would protect firearm manufacturers from frivolous lawsuits. The Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act was one of the first, and sadly the last, law put into place that would keep American businesses from falling victim to a lawsuit-happy culture.

Like many Democrats, Joe Biden has never tried to hide his disdain for the Second Amendment. The “President-Elect” has already made clear his intention to repeal the law that President Bush signed into place some 15 years ago. Ever since the tragedy of Columbine High School, the left has tried to strip away the constitutional rights of the American people. This new law would try to destroy the legal protection that was afforded to gun manufacturers in a blatant attempt to put them out of business.

Biden’s Repeal Plan

Biden has been openly discussing his plan to repeal the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act since he was meandering around the campaign trail in early 2020. Now that he has seemingly come into power, the future of one of the cornerstones of our nation could be in jeopardy.

Should Biden be able to push the repeal through, some analysts say that firearm manufacturers could be subject to litigation based on criminal acts performed by a criminal who used one of their firearms. If this is true, firearm manufacturers could find themselves bankrupt based on something they never had a chance to control.
