democrats once again are all for accountability. They want to make gun manufacturers liable for the crimes committed in the misuse of weapons:
A group of congressional Democrats announced Tuesday a new push to repeal a long-standing provision of federal law that protects firearms manufacturers from being sued when their products are misused.
On Tuesday, Schiff announced he had re-introduced the bill and rallied in Washington, D.C., along with Democrat Sens. Richard Blumenthal and Chris Murphy of Connecticut and Reps. Debbie Mucarsel-Powell of Florida, Jason Crow of Colorado and Dwight Evans of Pennsylvania.
Blumenthal and Schiff framed the issue as part of congressional Democrats’ efforts to pass gun control legislation, they said at the news conference announcing the bill.
And here’s the key line:
After listing major shooting incidents, Schiff said, “These deaths are preventable.”
I don’t know how you hold a manufacturer accountable for the misuse of anything. More people are killed by fists and hammers than by assault rifles.
With newer crime statistics now out for 2012, Breitbart News can report that more people are killed each year with fists and hammers than are killed with rifles or shotguns.
According to the FBI, there were a total of 625 murders committed with rifles and shotguns in 2012. That breaks down to 322 murders that were rifle related and 303 that were shotgun related.
The total number of deaths committed with fists, hammers, and other blunt objects was 1,196. That breaks down to 518 murders related to hammers and blunt objects and 678 related to fists.
Taken together, the rate of murder by fists and hammers was nearly 100 percent higher than the rate of murder by rifles or shotguns.
Ever hear of a democrat wanting to hold hammer manufacturers accountable for that? of course not.
The execrable Adam Schiff said this about guns:
“Under state and federal law, we require and expect every other industry, whether car-makers or drug companies, to act with reasonable care for public safety,” he said, adding that the legislation was needed “to correct the error that Congress made in 2005.”
He added that this piece of legislation was designed to “ensure that victims of gun violence can have their day in court.” (emphasis mine)
Well, as long as we are talking accountability, I strongly believe politicians should be held responsible for their actions. Specifically, I think any politician in favor of illegal alien immigration should be held accountable and responsible for the actions of those illegals.
Here’s a sample of illegal alien crimes from April:
On April 2, Miguel Martinez was arrested in Louisiana on 100 counts of possession of pornography of children under the age of 13, one count of production of child pornography, and one count of sexual battery of a child under the age of 13. Martinez, an illegal alien, was deported in 2005 and remains a registered sex offender in California, a sanctuary state.
On April 3, 2019, thirteen-year-old Mariana Pérez Borroto was struck and killed by an illegal alien from Argentina while riding her bicycle to school in Kissimmee, Florida. The suspect, Micaela Coronel, had overstayed a work visa and was driving without a license. ICE has placed a detainer on Coronel so she will be deported regardless of whether there is a conviction.
Illegal alien Laura Rosas killed Emmanuel Ramirez by running him over twice with her vehicle outside of the OK Corral nightclub in Fort Worth, Texas, on April 8, 2019. Rosas has been charged with murder and is being held on a $200,000 bond. ICE has also placed a detainer on her.
Juan Francisco, an illegal alien from Guatemala, killed Debbie Burgess in a hit-and-run in Knoxville, Tennessee, on April 8. Francisco’s criminal history includes a 2017 DUI conviction, a 2004 reckless driving charge, and a 2002 theft charge. Despite a 2002 warrant stating is illegal status, Francisco was never deported. As of this writing, Francisco is still being sought by the authorities.
On April 12, 2019, illegal Honduran alien Carlos Zuniga-Aviles kicked his girlfriend’s four-month-old son to death in Memphis, Tennessee. Zuniga-Aviles reportedly killed the infant, Alexander Lizondro-Chacon, because the boy was fathered by another man. The illegal alien had been deported from the U.S. five times (in 2010, 2011, 2012, 2015, and December 2016).
Back in March democrats wanted to expand background checks for gun purchases
The Democratic-controlled House of Representatives recently passed a gun control bill, H.R. 8, the Bipartisan Background Checks Act of 2019, which would establish new requirements for background checks of individuals who purchase, or are given, weapons from other private parties. Although a variety of amendments were introduced and accepted that would carve out certain common-sense exceptions, such as a gift hunting rifle from father to son, or inheritances, in my personal opinion it’s still not really a good bill because the only people ever likely to obey such a law are the law-abiding. How do you make criminals subject themselves to background checks to obtain weapons if they know that they aren’t going to pass them?
But not for illegal aliens:
Seeking to instill a little balance into the bill, Rep. W. Gregory Steube (R-Fla.) introduced an amendment, the focus of which is easy to understand: It requires that whenever any gun purchase is imminent — whether between private parties, or individuals and licensed firearms dealers, or whomever — a comparison of data is made between the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) database of immigration violators. When there is a match indicating that an alien illegally in the country is attempting to buy a firearm, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents would be notified so that the attempted purchaser could be apprehended and prosecuted and/or removed.
Ironically, as Steube notes, the amendment was based on language introduced by two House Democrats, Reps. David Cicilline (D-R.I.) and Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.), who is now chairman of the House Judiciary Committee — yet both of them voted against Steube’s amendment.
Democrats already defeated Kate’s Law:
The measure would expand maximum sentences for foreigners who attempt to re-enter the country, legally or illegally, after having been deported, denied entry or removed, and for foreign felons who attempt to re-enter the country. It appears unlikely to pass the Senate, where Democrats have vowed to filibuster it.
democrats even go so far as to protect the right of illegals to vote:
They protect illegals at the cost of American lives. Worst of all, they don’t get to personally feel the pain of their actions. They don’t have to account for the pain they cause. They don’t care about the loss of an American child.
It is time that America demand that politicians be held to the same accountability and responsibility as they seek for everyone else. Democrats so supportive of illegals should be held legally liable for their actions.
Were it up to me, for every American killed by an illegal alien a democrat politician would be imprisoned. Truth be known, I want worse than that. They need to feel the pain they cause.
Then we’d see how quickly things would change. We citizens have rights too, the right not to be made a victim of liberal largesse one of them.
As Jeff Session said, “The illegal immigrant crime rate in this country should be zero.”
They should not be here. Period.
