It would follow wouldn't it?

Maybe that'd make 'em think twice, three times, before allowing this to happen.

I know this thread topic has been called bogus but just as a thought exercise, let's take it to its logical extreme.

Eventually, people will be able to sue politicians for absolutely anything that they, the politicians, advocate for that later proves detrimental to the public...

Maybe not such a bad idea, this sue everything...thing.

Whaaaaaat?

A car gets stolen, is used unlawfully by a driver who is acting unlawfully and if it runs you down you can sue Toyota for making a dangerous Yaris?

Has Hilary lost her god damned mind?

Shall we start suing garden centres for selling us trees that grow large and fall down in storms, damaging property too?

That's the point. She hasn't lost her mind.

I don't like her. At all. But I'll never make the mistake of thinking her crazy, or unintelligent. She's neither. Which makes it very scary if she does, indeed, think this.

Personally, I think it's being misrepresented, as I've only found one source. The one the OP used. Everything else uses suing auto makers as a logical follow on to the ability to sue firearms manufacturers.

It's not misrepresented, it's purposely made up BS.....click bait.

It's borderline satire.


Unfortunately, Hillary Clinton really is making that argument.

She’s just targeting a different industry, and Bernie Sanders is cravenly following her lead.


More realistically though, as cars get better at driving themselves it may become a reality that people begin endorsing such a way to hold manufacturers accountable for accidents caused by the vehicle

This one time....
In the bathroom....
After taking a dump and while wiping my butt with a particular brand of TP....
One of my fingers lost grip and went up my @$$.

Even though I enjoyed it....
Could I sue for that?

Daddy needs a new car.

I can see a definite case for suing manufacturers of autonomous cars in the future.

Remove the variable, unpredictable and uncontrollable human element from control if the vehicle and then the manufacturers are definitely responsible for the safety of passengers and other road users.

Off topic, but autonomous cars freak me out. How easy will it be for terrorists to send in car bombs then ??

It's all about the martyrdom with terrorists though. That's the ultimate in dedication, dying for your cause. Regardless of ideology.

You know, now that I'm really putting forth some thought into it I could imagine a gun-manufacturer being held liable if they were to try and implement some sort of safety mechanism into firearms. Something like a Judge Dredd gun that knows who the owner is and only fires from the owner.

Unfortunately, the only technological progress that guns have made in the last two centuries is making them better at killing people.

ETA: Apparently the technology has been around for over a decade; Gun control: the NRA wants to take America's smart guns away


Engage Armament announced it would start carrying the iP1 on May 1st. It backpedaled less than 24 hours later, after gun-rights advocates lashed out on Facebook and called the store, threatening to shoot Raymond, his girlfriend, and his dog.

However, there is immense pressure not to be the first to sell them. That’s because of a New Jersey law passed in 2002 known as the Childproof Handgun Law, which says that all guns sold in New Jersey must be state-approved smart guns within three years of a smart gun being sold anywhere in the country. The goal was to make smart guns mandatory as soon as the technology existed. Officially, no smart gun has been sold in the US yet — meaning if Raymond had sold one, it would have triggered the clause in New Jersey.

Hillary is pouring on the old "Let's sue the bastards" theme.

Lately it's been about suing gun manufacturers.

Now it's about suing car makers when the car is used as a "weapon of choice" even if it's accidental !!!!

When will these lawyers give it up?

I imagine something like this would cause millions of lawsuits one after another.


Clinton Campaigns To Allow Hit-And-Run Victims To Sue Car Makers



Campaigning in South Carolina today, Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton argued that accident victims and people who were intentionally run down in hit-and-run attacks with vehicles should be able to sue the automotive industry for damages incurred.

Clinton pointed out that almost every vehicle sold in the United States is capable of exceeding the speed limit and may be obtained by criminals second-hand, and often times illegally, to justify her position.

“So far as I know, the car industry and car dealers are the only business in America that is totally free of liability for their behavior. Nobody else is given that immunity. And that just illustrates the extremism that has taken over this debate.”


SUE 'em ALL !!!







Is she is totally out of her mind?

She wants to be prez real bad. lol!

Wow...

It is almost as if Hilary wants her party and her platform to look as stupid as possible. If I facepalm hard enough to encompass my feelings about this, my hand will go clear through my skull.

Hi TrueBrit it's not true Masonic already debunked it on the 1st pg some one was just taking a piss on her position on gun control and applying it to cars.

Personally, I think every politician that makes a campaign promise that doesn't follow through should be charged with breach of contract and sued, or impeached or fired (from a canon into shark infested waters lol). It's all good ;-)
