George Soros is Now Targeting Guns and Gun Companies, Investing Millions

George Soros is now targeting guns and gun companies through his advocacy organization in an attempt to repeal the act protecting firearms manufacturers from liability for gun crimes committed with the weapons they produce, as the Washington Free Beacon reports.

The Open Society Policy Center, Soros’s D.C.-based 501(c)4 nonprofit that works on domestic and international advocacy and is affiliated with the much larger Open Society Foundations, has poured nearly $9 million into such efforts so far this year.

Soros’s group reported spending $2.6 million on lobbying throughout the first quarter, covering international, military, and appropriations issues. In addition, the center moved into gun control advocacy and reported lobbying on “issues related to a bill to repeal the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act.”

The Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA) was passed as a bulwark against frivolous lawsuits attempting to hold gun companies responsible for criminal acts committed by third parties—sometimes decades after the first legal sale of the firearm.

Who could have ever predicted that George Soros would be behind trying to strip or restrict American’s Second Amendment rights?

According to Wikipedia “The Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA) protects firearms manufacturers and dealers from being held liable when crimes have been committed with their products. However, both manufacturers and dealers can still be held liable for damages resulting from defective products, breach of contract, criminal misconduct, and other actions for which they are directly responsible in much the same manner that any manufacturer of consumer products is held responsible. They may also be held liable for negligent entrustment when they have reason to know a gun is intended for use in a crime.”

This is an important protection otherwise Democrats and their supporters would hit gun manufacturers with lawsuit after lawsuit until the companies went out of business.

Soros’s center reported $5.92 million in expenditures throughout the second quarter, which included lobbying the House of Representatives and Senate for the Equal Access to Justice for Victims of Gun Violence Act.

The Equal Access to Justice for Victims of Gun Violence Act was introduced in the House by Rep. Adam Schiff (D., Calif.) and seeks to “repeal the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act, and provide for the discoverability and admissibility of gun trace information in civil proceedings.”

Soros is often behind the most nefarious things Democrats try to do to Americans and this is no exception. He’s spending millions to support Democrat’s goal of disarming American citizens.

It’s up to the voters of this country to ensure Democrats push to strip Americans of their rights fails miserably. Don’t let Soros and the Democrats win.
