We told you this morning how USPSA Shooter, 3-Gunner, and NRA-certified firearms instructor Jason Falconer shot and killed a 22-year-old Somali immigrant who went on a stabbing rampage inside a St. Cloud, (MN) Mall on Saturday, saving countless lives.
Falconer is the president and owner of Tactical Advantage, LLC and Tactical Advantage Firearms Training, Inc.
His business interests all revolve around training law-abiding citizens to carry concealed firearms for self-defense to protect themselves and loved ones from criminal predators (and apparently terrorists).
If elected President, Hillary Clinton will do everything in her power to see Jason Falconer driven out of business and into bankruptcy.
Falconer’s Tactical Advantage, LCC, is a full-service training facility with a firing range, gun rentals, firearms training, and gun sales to law-abiding citizens.
Under our current laws, Mr. Falconer and his company are provided some limited legal protections against frivolous lawsuits by the 2005 Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA). Without PLCAA, Falconer—as well as other firearms and ammunition industry retailers, distributors, and manufacturers—could face frivolous lawsuits if a firearm they sold was used in a crime.
Judges would immediately throw out frivolous lawsuits, such as when someone tries to sue a car dealer or manufacturer after a car buyer runs someone over or gets into a drunk driving wreck.
But we don’t live in a sane world, we live in a highly politicized one.
We live in a world where, prior to PLCAA passing in 2005, gun dealers were sued out of business for legally selling a firearm which was later used in a crime… sometimes years later. If Hillary Clinton is elected, we may see a return to that infamous time.
Clinton has targeted PLCAA for elimination, repeatedly and falsely claiming that it offers gunmakers and dealers “immunity.” There’s Mrs. Clinton’s rhetoric, and then there’s reality.
At the heart of Hillary Clinton’s attack on the human right of armed self-defense is her full-frontal assault on the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act, a mouthful more easily remembered as the PLCAA.
Hillary Clinton and several allies have been consistently focusing on the PLCAA for months, claiming that it provides the firearms industry “immunity” from being held responsible for its actions.
This is a bold, direct, and intentional lie to the American people from Hillary Clinton.
Gun makers and sellers can be sued, and are being sued right now for both negligence and criminal actions.
Remington is presently negotiating a class-action settlement that will cost them millions over a defective trigger design. They’re also being sued as the parent company of Bushmaster in a case resulting from the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre.
Century Arms is now battling a lawsuit over safeties that allegedly don’t work.
Badger Guns just lost a famous case for selling guns to an obvious straw purchaser, who used the gun to shoot two police officers.
The owner of Stag Arms has been banned from the industry for life and his former company hit with $500,000 in fines for paperwork violations.
The PLCAA has never offered blanket immunity to the industry as Hillary Clinton has repeatedly claimed. As the cases above clearly show, manufacturers and sellers who make defective products or who act criminally can of course be sued, just like any other business.
All that PLCAA does is prevent gun control zealots from filing waves of frivolous lawsuits meant to bankrupt retailers, wholesalers, and manufacturers, destroying the gun industry via frivolous lawsuits since they can’t get the public to agree to ban guns.
Let’s be perfectly clear: the only reason to repeal the PLCAA is so that deep-pocketed gun control groups financed by anti-gun billionaires can file wave after wave of frivolous lawsuits to bankrupt manufacturers, distributors, and gun dealers. Whether manufacturers are guilty of any crimes is beside the point; they will be bankrupted by having to pay teams of lawyers millions of dollars to defend them.
Clinton’s goal of removing the PLCAA exist for no other reason that to hollow out the right to bear arms by bankrupting the industry through a wave of frivolous lawsuits.
Tell me, my fellow Americans, which is more devious?
Is it more repulsive to honestly claim to the world that you want to abolish the Second Amendment so that voters can judge you an on the merits of your position, or is it more vile to claim to “respect the traditions” of gun owners, while plotting to destroy the entire industry and render the right impossible to exercise?
Jason Falconer has dedicated his life to protecting his fellow citizens, first as a law enforcement officer, and then when concealed carry became legal in Minnesota, he took the initiative to create a firearms training company and then a range and retail shop in order to provide the best possible self-defense training to his fellow Americans.
Hillary Clinton would destroy all Falconer has accomplished in helping protect American lives by repealing a law that offers him and the firearms industry some limited protections from gun control zealots hoping to sue them out of business.
Your vote in November will determine whether or not Hillary Clinton becomes President of the United States and can carry out her promised agenda of attacking your essential human right to bear arms for your defense.
