(Tea Party PAC) – Joe Biden seems to have mustered up every last bit of energy he had left over the last few days as he limps on to the New Hampshire primary trailing behind the more coherent and mildly more interesting candidates who by default are leading in the polls.
And he’s channeled it into targeting the gun industry.
He must be all tuckered out now!
Joe Biden used his gun control time at the New Hampshire Democrat debate to call for Americans to be able to sue firearm makers over gun crime.
Biden segued into these comments by criticizing Bernie Sanders for supporting the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA), a law that prohibits frivolous lawsuits against manufacturers of firearms, which are legally made and sold.
Biden said Sanders’ support for that law was a “mistake” that gave “gun manufacturers … a loophole that does not allow them to be sued for the carnage they are creating.”
He added, “The first thing I’m going to do as president is work to get rid of that, and it’s going to hard.”
Biden’s comments in favor of suing gun manufacturers are not new. On October 5, 2019, Breitbart News reported that Biden put repealing PLCAA at the top of his gun control “wish list.”
Speaking at the MSNBC / Gabby Giffords / March for Our Lives gun control forum in Las Vegas, Biden criticized the protections firearm manufacturers get for guns that are legally made and sold, saying, “No other outfit in history has gotten this kind of protection.” He said those protections would “change overnight” if he were president.
On Saturday, Joe Biden took aim at another fellow candidate, Pete Buttigieg, in an attack so brutal he may have to sue a gun manufacturer for shooting himself in the foot.

He promptly got brutalized by the press:
This whole ad is a homophobic dog whistle: decorative sidewalks and lights and pet adoption? Discomfort with African Americans? WHAT IS BIDEN SAYING? https://t.co/9cfLTottwO

I dislike #MayoPete as much as Burisma Joe, but this ad is terrible; Biden big-shotting a guy for being a small town mayor and the little quality of life issues that matter to era people. https://t.co/JTlMUbPCTk

Mayor Pete was so derelict in improving the roads of South Bend, Domino's Pizza stepped up to help:
