Colorado Democrats want gun manufacturers held liable for crimes committed with their guns Empty Colorado Democrats want gun manufacturers held liable for crimes committed with their guns

The owners and makers of assault-style weapons could soon be held legally liable in Colorado for crimes committed with their guns, if sponsors of a new gun-control package have their way.
State Democrats unveiled the broad package of measures this week, joined by gun violence survivors from the Columbine, Aurora and Sandy Hook shootings.

The eight bills detailed at a press conference Tuesday tackle gun control as well as mental health issues tied to gun violence. Among them are measures to put universal background checks in place for private gun sales and a bill to ban sales of high-capacity ammunition magazines.
But getting the most attention is the gun manufacturer-liability measure.

“This is the most aggressive anti-gun legislation ever floated in the country,” Republican Sen. Greg Brophy told FoxNews.com Thursday. “To hold everybody in the entire chain of possession responsible for a crime committed by one person? The manufacturer, dealer and owners? That’s equivalent to blaming Coors for a drunk driver and the 7-Eleven after someone steals a 12-pack.”

The proposal would hold manufacturers of firearms, as well as sellers, responsible for crimes committed with those guns. The measure apparently conflicts with an existing federal law, but Democrats in the state reportedly say they want to get that federal law repealed.
Republicans say the gun liability measure would effectively ban those weapons because manufacturers and retailers would be afraid to sell them.

While Democrats hold a majority in both state houses, though, getting the sweeping series of bills passed will be an uphill battle.

Colorado has taken center stage in the country’s fight over gun control. David Keene, the head of the National Rifle Association, is in Denver to meet with Democratic Gov. John Hickenlooper and Senate President John Morse.

Keene called universal background checks a political "sweet spot," during an interview with The Associated Press on Thursday. He added that the current background check systems are underfunded and that forcing them on private sales would be logistically difficult.
Colorado’s governor has said in the past he supports background checks, but he has remained publicly quiet about the legislative package introduced earlier this week.

“The governor is hiding under his desk when it comes to answering the hard questions,” Brophy said. “It took me 30 seconds to figure out what the plans do. The governor shouldn’t be given a pass. He needs to address the issue.”
Calls for comment to the governor’s office were not immediately returned.

I guess in the theater shooting, the theater would be responsible as well? after all... if they weren't showing a movie then people would not have been there in the 1st place. Some folks really are a special kind of stupid.

I'm all for the idiot control.

Why didn't the fire exist door alarm go off when the door was opened? I would sue the theater.

If gun manufacturers are held liable for crimes committed with their products then car manufacturers should be held liable when someone is killed in a car accident.

I can't believe some one would actually propose that. I don't get the mind of liberals.

Can we sue the legislator who proposed this for wasting the money that the taxpayers are paying him? How about we make legislators liable for the damage they cause by enacting stupid legislation without taking into account the "unintended" consequences that typically occur because they didn't think things through enough before they legislated with their feelings. Maybe they should be liable for the jobs they will cost people when they drive manufacturers out of business (and not just in the gun industry).

They think that a person should have to take some sort of test (or a battery of them) before they are allowed to have a gun. Perhaps there should be some sort of tests administered to prospective candidates for office before they can stand for election - intelligence tests would be a good start, followed up by tests on US History.
