WASHINGTON — In the wake of the Oregon shooting, Hillary Clinton is taking aim at boosting her poll numbers by unveiling her gun control plan, part of which involves repealing a law that protects gun manufacturers and dealers from lawsuits should one of their weapons be used in a crime.
Using Clinton's logic here, maybe we should also hold knife manufacturers liable for stabbings. And allow Wal-Mart to be sued for selling the knife, too. Hillary may be digging her own grave with this argument, especially if she tries taking away America's Krispy Kremes.
The fact that America has more guns than people is quite remarkable. Canada has about the third of the guns per capita that America has, which is still a lot. However, the number of mass shootings that take place in Canada is next to nothing compared to what happens south of their border.
Gun control is shaping up to be a divisive issue in the upcoming presidential election, and the NRA is no slouch in their lobbying efforts to push and pull Washington on behalf of gun enthusiasts.
Hillary's plan to invite trigger-happy lawsuit lawyers to take shots at Smith and Wesson's bank account isn't logical. Plus, everyone knows you can't bring a briefcase to a gunfight.
