California: New Law Allows Gun Manufacturers to Be Sued For Negligence Based on Sandy Hook Precedent

A new law signed by California Governor Newsom could allow gun makers to be sued by citizens, local governments, or the state’s attorney general if one of their firearms is used irresponsibly or causes harm. Under federal law, gun manufacturers are typically protected from civil lawsuits under the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA), but can still be held responsible if they are found to be guilty of negligence or in breach of contract. California’s law would be enacted under an exemption of that 2005 law by allowing private citizens to file a lawsuit if the gun maker is found to be in violation of state laws regarding gun sales or marketing.

Nine families of victims from the Sandy Hook shooting event successfully sued Remington Arms, the manufacturer of the weapon reportedly used by Adam Lanza, setting a bad precedent. Mark Pellin reported that the plaintiffs circumvented federal law and claimed that the company’s advertising and marketing campaigns made Remington culpable rather than the actual firearm itself. He wrote that the Remington case was meant to deliver a template for future litigants to go after gun manufacturers and clears the way for more litigation that will either force other gun companies out of business under the financial stress of defending themselves, effectively reducing the supply of guns, or make guns so prohibitively expensive that the average law-abiding citizen can’t afford them.

Please refer to our earlier reports (here and here) on the Remington case that settled for $73 million and James Fetzer’s case in which he was sued by a parent of Sandy Hook and he says the shooting event was staged to disarm America.

Gun manufacturers in California may become susceptible to lawsuits from private citizens alleging negligence under a new law signed by Gov. Gavin Newsom on Tuesday.

The legislation could allow gun makers to be sued by citizens, local governments, or the state’s attorney general if one of their firearms is used irresponsibly or causes harm. It would also create a code of conduct to reduce gun violence that would “establish, implement, and enforce reasonable controls … pertaining to unfair methods of competition, unfair or deceptive acts or practices, and false advertising,” according to the bill .

“Nearly every industry is held to account when their products cause harm or injury,” Newsom said . “All except one: the gun industry. Today, California is going to change that. They can no longer hide from the mass destruction that they have caused.”

Under federal law, gun manufacturers are typically protected from civil lawsuits under the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act but can still be held responsible if they are found to be guilty of negligence or in breach of contract.

Newsom’s law would be enacted under an exemption of that 2005 law by allowing private citizens to file a lawsuit if the gun maker is found to be in violation of state laws regarding gun sales or marketing. The bill was specifically modeled after an abortion law passed in Texas earlier this year that deputizes private citizens to sue abortion providers who are found guilty of aiding or abetting abortion in the state.

No one died at Sandy Hook. It was a false flag event and all of the people allegedly killed are alive today except for one who died of old age. That school was not even open. We have the right to defend ourselves, and guns don’t kill people, people kill people. This is one of the stupidest laws ever made. Cars kill people every day, so now we should sue the car manufacturers? This is deep state insanity and suing the gun makers is so stupid I cannot believe this idiot is really in office. It has to be a… Read more »

Ah yes the lawmakers accepting fraud as fact, along with judges, the FBI, etc. A disturbing far too frequent occurrence. I would appreciate a person with time (or who makes the time) figuring out an effective recipe for putting such lawmakers, judges, and FBI globalist minions in jail for abuse of power, fraud upon the court, misconduct, corruption, treason, conspiring to incrementally ruin gun makers, etc.

That will expand to many things, car manufacturers, etc. Thus making the government and corporations responsible for what people do, and probably giving them power over the very people that buy/live under them.

FREE people are PERSONALLY responsible for their actions.

The loophole from the Sandy Hook precedence was that Remington had advertised something to the effect that the “Bushmaster” was a awesome gun and took high capacity magazines(paraphrasing). This made them liable according to the judge. I think if gun manufacturers refrain from that it makes this article a non-issue.
