California Governor Signs New Bill Allowing Gun Makers to Be Sued for Negligence

California Governor Gavin Newsom signed a new bill into effect on Tuesday which allows lawsuits to be filed against gun makers.

The Daily Wire reports:

The law, AB 1594, creates a “firearm industry standard of conduct,” including the requirement to “[e]stablish, implement, and enforce reasonable controls” and “[t]ake reasonable precautions to ensure that the firearm industry member does not sell, distribute, or provide a firearm-related product to a downstream distributor or retailer of firearm-related products who fails to establish, implement, and enforce reasonable controls.”

If a member of the gun industry fails to comply with these standards and others set forth in the bill, they may be sued.

“To the victims of gun violence and their families: California stands with you. The gun industry can no longer hide from the devastating harm their products cause,” Newsom said in a statement, per the Los Angeles Times. “Our kids, families and communities deserve streets free of gun violence and gun makers must be held accountable for their role in this crisis. Nearly every industry is held liable when people are hurt or killed by their products — guns should be no different.”

Newsom also signed two other laws last month, one which aims to crack down on gun advertising towards young people, and another that seeks to place limitations on the ability of citizens to make guns at home. Both of these laws went into effect immediately, while the law regarding lawsuits won’t take effect until July 1 of next year.

This one will wind up in the SCOTUS and get thrown out as unconstructional on all
counts. The weapon did not commit the criminal act nor did the ammunition. It do
was the criminal who violated the civil rights of the individuals and the corrupt lawyers
and judges who released or refused to prosecute the criminals. 99 percent of the .
criminal acts were done with stolen weapons.

Governor Nuisance (I mean Newsome) should focus his energy on his state because what was once a beautiful state many desired to live in is now nothing more and nothing less than a 💩hole. And his auntie Nancy Pelosi is just as bad and just as guilty of making California a 💩hole.

Old Gav is swiftly climbing the ladder of idiocy toward the lofty heights of your Maxine Waters, Elizabeth Warren, and the squadies, in his attempting to cement himself as the dumbest person in American politics. Run Gavin run!
