President’s Op-Ed Repeats Lie About Gun Industry “Immunity”

posted on January 9, 2016

In addition to his CNN “town hall,” President Barack Obama submitted an op-ed to The New York Times elaborating his feelings on gun control. The president promises not to support any candidate in the future—even a Democrat—who does not support gun control. He also, predictably, tells some falsehoods, most notably repeating Hillary Clinton’s frequent lie about a lack of liability for gun manufacturers and retailers. 

President Obama claims that gun lobbyists have “… guaranteed that manufacturers enjoy virtual immunity from lawsuits, which means that they can sell lethal products and rarely face consequences.” Last time we checked, guns are supposed to be lethal; manufacturers can certainly be sued for making them incorrectly, but not for making them do what they are intended for. What the president wants is an environment in which the gun industry can be bombarded into non-existence with frivolous lawsuits—his supposed concern over liability is a sham.
