At the one very pro HRC site I visit, they are mad at Sen Sanders for his common sense position on about gun manufacturer liability.

While being a gun owner and advocate, I find the NRA's politics, makes it hard for anyone that is not right wing to support them. That being said, their recent comments on Sen Sanders really made my day!

This is an epic endorsement that we so badly needed!


Huh?

that wasn't an endorsement.


en·dorse·ment

/inˈdôrsmənt,enˈdôrsmənt/

noun

noun: endorsement; plural noun: endorsements; noun: indorsement; plural noun: indorsements

1.

an act of giving one's public approval or support to someone or something.

I do believe they gave public support to Sanders and his opinion of protecting gun manufacturers.

May not be an endorsement of his campaign however getting any kind of a nod from the NRA for Sanders is something I still consider to be epic.

The NRA's all or nothing approach borders on a bit crazy when so many issues live in the grey area - like mental health screenings (edit to be clear: for the law to check that a person is not certifiably crazy) and mandatory background checks - but he's common sense to the core.

I can see why die hard HRC supporters dislike this greatly, it crosses the aisle over to the republican side that opens him up to more well rounded American support. But he didn't need a popular poll to have this opinion, just look at the link I posted on the past page about Vermont and guns.

This is good news for Sanders. No doubt. Now if he'll just run with it instead of not talking about it - like he sometimes does when he's holding a winning hand.

So we're supposed to infer from this that Mr. Sanders is pro-2nd, I take it? He's not the big bad socialist boogeyman coming to disarm everyone and implement his statist dystopia?
Exactly right.

He's not the big bad socialist boogeyman coming to disarm everyone.
Thanks for acknowledging that.

Now, tell your friends and family and neighbors: Bernie is not going to take your guns.
You know it.
Help them know it.

Please.

Its such a bizarre position for a pro-corporation politician to take ya know? Hillary I mean. It's like saying "my friend Anne is fat my fellow Americans! Its time to hold Snickers responsible!"

The only reason she can be saying something so ridiculous is because she thinks it differentiates her from Bernie in some way. But it's so politically tone deaf. She either said it on the fly or is really a moron.

I could not agree more!

The precedent set by such a law should scare every manufacturer left in the US of A!

I think we have a problem when even legal sales of a 2nd amendment right are in question. Liability is really a question of if a president would be willing to take that legally questionable route in order to ban guns without banning them by making them impossible to sell.

The response probably indicates that Sanders would not use tricks to ban guns. However until i hear otherwise, far left candidates always encroach on the 2nd amendment.

My second amendment line of liberty is that citizens or at least citizen militias should have access to the same level of weaponry that policing forces have access to. That is my understanding of the intent of the amendment as relates to weaponry.

A very important facet of the 2nd amendment is as a check against the power of an over reaching central government.

The more I think about the NRA endorsement the more I worry HRC will twist it to turnaway middle of the road Democrats. She can say "look the NRA endorsed Senator Sanders, that's not what Democrats stand for". He's got to be real sharp in his response, give a perfect soundbite to turn it to his favor, something like "You don't sue Ford for a drunk driver, you can't sue Remington for murder. That's the opposite of free American enterprise." That's a poor example but this could go south with part of his base if not handled properly.

Hillary is stupid.


You know what I thinks "stupid"?

How people are so biased and stubborn on this issue that they can't recognize that Hillary's and Sanders statements weren't even opposing each other.

Sanders simply said US manufacturer's shouldn't be liable for consumers own negligence and Hillary made a very good point about why there needs to be a law specifically protecting gun manufacturers.

It makes no sense that gun manufacturers shouldn't be held to the same standards as as any other manufacturer.

We've moved well past this as a nation. Even police forces have tanks and armed drones these days. Ordinary citizens do not have access to that equipment. The more powerful stuff costs far more money, and places it out of the hands of citizens. Once you get to the level of toys the military has, things really get to be unreal. Jets, helicopters, boats, and so on. The ordinary citizen has no chance through conventional weapons.

Fortunately, there's some unconventional weapons that really even things up.

Looks like Sanders has flip flopped and supports repealing the PLCAA. I knew Sanders would do something like this so he can pander to the left wing extremist and I'm shocked many of his supporters didn't see it coming. He knows full well what could very well happen and the fact that gun control groups will use this to further their agenda.
