New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has declared a “gun violence disaster emergency” and signed new legislation that will allow the localities to bring civil liability lawsuits against firearm manufacturers, importers, marketers, and dealers. 

Currently, the arms industry is protected from frivolous lawsuits by the PLCAA (Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act). The act made it impossible to sue gun manufacturers for criminal use of their products. This act has not made it impossible to sue manufacturers altogether though, if a manufacturer were to release a defective product then they can be sued for damages. 

The new law signed by Governor Andrew Cuomo opens up the door for frivolous lawsuits against every member of the arms industry, mom and pop shops and publicly traded companies can both be targeted with lawsuits designed to burn cash and time. These lawsuits are extremely malicious and are designed to put companies under. 

This legislation passed by Cuomo is gun control. This legislation is designed to reduce the number of firearms you have access to by putting companies under. This is not legislation that bans certain types of firearms, adds requirements to firearms ownership, or threatens your rights, this is legislation that aims to take out the gun industry, and by doing that they are effectively killing your access to firearms.

If it were not for the criminal activity by individuals and groups like ANTIFA and BLM, so many new gun owners would not feel the need for the tools of self defense.

When Antifa and BLM are successful in defunding and elimination the police departments……..who do they think will be protecting them?

It is still a form of infringement and he should be sued in court. Harassing manufacturers is illegal. That idiot needs to be brought in front of a judge. I’m sure he has armed protection. What a pos.

Leave it to communist democrats to try to take away Americans constitutional rights by way of the back door. This will be shot down by the court and every democrat that voted for and Cuomo should have to reimburse by double all cost for fighting this democrat scum power play

Cuomo’s desperate. This might be the last straw and catalyst for Remington Arms to close up shop and move out of Ilion. Hundreds of communities would welcome this operation, all with lower criminal activity and some with zero state income tax.

Well, you [email protected]$$ voters voted FOR these tyrant idiots. You get what you vote for.

Time for ALL firearm manufacturers and sellers to LEAVE nys and never return. All gun and ammo manufacturers need to boycott ALL sales to law enforcement departments/agencies!

If this is not against federal laws then here is what will happen. Gun Dealers will close up shop in New York and Gun Manufacturers will refuse to sell weapons to and in the State of New York including to law enforcement agencies. Guns will continue to be smuggled into the state by the criminals and the Police, whether it be local, state, or administrative won’t have weapons to defend any longer. The only people to have guns will be the Military and Feds since they are given by the Federal Government which would be exempt from this action entirely…. Good going Gov Cuomo, just proves you be a jackass and an idiot all at the same time….. Time to build a wall around your state completely so that you might be able to stop the guns from being smuggled in but even that won’t stop them.

Cuomo should be hung for killing the old people in nursing homes. Why would anyone vote for this murderer? Now he is going against the constitution, well he does this everyday but now we have actioable cause. Hey where is the Attorney General of NY? Oh I forgot going after Trump, which they have been for yearstrying to manufacture a case against him and truly there are somany obvious cases they could be going after in the NY target rich environment.

You are right on target. It seems the media loves this schmuck. Anyone who did what he did in regards to the virus would NEVER even be a dog catcher ever. ( no offense )

For the government to take complete control they have to remove our ability to protect ourselves. This means the populace has to be disarmed. The Constitution Framers knew what they were doing.

I will just post this Photo, and the Fact the first RED FLAG LAW, was Germany’s Riechblat, ban on Jews and other Prohibited person from owning posessing firearms, other persons are any one or class of person they disliked ( any who opossed them ) a RED FLAG is difined by who is in power at that specific time ! Right now any Trump supporter / voter , who thinks the election was stolen is officially designated ( EXTREAMIST/ DOMESTIC TERRORIST )

But don’t take my word for it , go here & look for yourself { http://www.dhs.gov/national-terrorism-advisory-system } 6 days after taking office the White house used the DHS to designate all opposition as Terrorist / extreamist ! a RED FLAG

This is another scheme in a long list for democommies to to destroy our second amendment rights. They can’t get their sacred “legislation” through so they are trying every angle possible. Welcome to the Fourth Reich Amerika.

Since New York already is a very dangerous place, and since this law makes the state even more dangerous, seems time to move. Manufacturers and dealers? If you value your ability to earn money, it’s time to write off New York as a total loss and follow your customer base.

I wouldn’t worry about customers who remain because they’ll intimidated away from using their firearms. Cuomo will be gone soon and with luck, this law will be repealed. If not, criminals will overwhelm law enforcement while citizens cower in their safe rooms. Eventually, sensible people will bring balance back to New York.

This governor is a criminal and has no business writing legislation that goes after our 2nd amendment rights. He needs prosecuted and jailed just like the rest of the communist dictators running the lefty states! Join the n.r.a. The more members we have the less bullshit we have to put up with from these little power hungry dictators!
