Democrats are looking for ways to sue gun manufacturers as shootings in New York City continue to surge.

Some Democrats are also seeking to make it more arduous to legally purchase firearms.

WSKG reports that state Sen. Zellnor Myrie (D) is sponsoring legislation to allow New York residents to sue gun makers who “don’t take steps to prevent their products from being sold and purchased illegally.”

Myrie commented,
“I again ask this industry: what are you going to do about your products that are killing our people?
You have experienced record profits this past year … and while you make record profits, we experienced record death.”

Other parts of a larger gun control package from Democrats include
making would-be gun purchasers pass a drug test,
a “mental health evaluation,”
and a gun safety course.
These measures would also apply to individuals who are applying to get a New York hunting license.

New York adopted a large number of gun controls in 2013 under the auspices of the SAFE Act.
Those controls include
universal background checks,
a ban on “high capacity” magazines,
an “assault weapons” ban,
firearm registration requirements,
and ammunition registration.

New York also has a red flag law, which took effect August 24, 2019.

So, the state already has all the gun controls which Democrats are pushing at the federal level,
but those controls are not stopping the wave of violence sweeping across NYC.

Someone should ask Sen. Zellnor Myrie why not just put the criminals in jail and execute the ones that are guilty of any form of homicide, like a week after they are convicted. Would really like to see her answer.

Record sales creates record gun violence??? How many of those record sales wound up being used in the commission of a crime by the legal purchaser? Zero? So how is this proposal going to change anything? Gun manufacturers are supposed to be responsible for where that gun winds up after it’s out of their possession and control? This makes total sense, said no one with half a brain.

So i guess NY wants Ruger, S&W and others to be the police now? That might be a good thing being they have disbanded the anti crime unit in NYC which was mostly responsible for removing illegal guns from the streets. I'm guessing they would have a better hit miss ratio in a gun fight too.

When are these idiots going to:

1. Admit they have no clue how to solve gun crimes?
2. Start tackling the real problem which is criminal behavior?

Stultifyingly idiotic.

Well, I am sure you know that the intent of the left is not to reduce crime, they could not care less about crime or how many people are being killed with illegal guns, the intent of the left is to remove all guns from law abiding people just like in Cuba and Venezuela so they can control those law abiding people and prevent them from revolting against the left oppression, just like happened in Cuba and Venezuela..
