Bernie flips flops on gun manufacturing immunity.

Today in Charleston S.C.
(AP) — On the eve of the next Democratic debate, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders announced his support for legislation that would reverse a 2005 law granting gun manufacturers legal immunity that he once supported.


Sanders voted against the 1993 Brady Bill, which required background checks for gun purchases. In 2005, he voted to protect gun manufacturers from lawsuits brought by victims of gun violence. He changed his mind.

Oct 15, 2015 - Exactly 69 days ago he said this about Hillary.
Democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton accused Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders at the CNN Democrat debate Tuesday night of not being tough enough on gun control, but the Sanders campaign later hit back showing Clinton’s own flip flops on guns.


Hillary changes her position after six years of consideration and Bernie changes his position after 69 days and his campign has the nerve to say she flipped flopped. I guess only Bernie can change his mind?

True to form the media, DU, Daily Kos and Huffington Post were silent on Sanders hypocrisy.

1. He knew Hillary would ask him about it.. She'll be glad he's come over to her side on this. This

is about Sensible Gun Laws and that one was awful.

This is helping Hillary and all of us.. so many Americans want sensible gun laws.

Good Job Hillary!

Thank you, Tommy.

Fuck the NRA!

And thank you, Bernie, for listening to the people!

And thank you, Hillary, for helping to move my candidate to the left on this!

11. Thanks that was my point

This had to be poll driven. How else can anyone explain a complete 180 in two months?

8. Twis a good flip flip. I see it as evolving-which is good. Yets, as Hillary said on

George S. Sunday show-Hillary hopes that Bernie will also evolve on Charleston loophole.

Update:
Now Bernie is on George S. and twice will not answer George's question "Will you vote to close the Charleston loophole". Twice, Bernie changed the subject.

Now George is asking about how Bernie will pay for his health care plan. And Bernie is playing the victim. Does not answer him.
Gerorge asked twice if he would put out how his plan will be funded before the Iowa caucus--and after goiing around the Bush-Bernie finally conceded that he will put out a funding plan. So, the wait is on.

Wow. Berniie keeps saying not good to back 20, 30 years to look at past behaviors, voting etc. Hope he follows his own advice.

I have to say--I watched both interviews -Hillary and Bernie just now. IMHO Hillary gave good concise answers-was relaxed. while Bernie was almost yelling and agitated--beating around the bush while not answering. Wonder what the debate will be like tonight.

13. As I understood his statement, he still wants to give immunity to some.

And he made some excuse about wanting to protect "mom and pop" gun sellers.

16. "There's a lot of room over here!"

"Yup! So much room, I think I'll put in a breakfast nook. We'll be able to make waffles!"
"Waffles?"
"Yeah, waffles."


Go Bernie!

17. Yep. And "Mom an Pop gun shops" is a bullshit NRA distinction.

Guns sold by so called mom and pops are just as deadly. Yet the NRA invoked mom and pops when it originally pushed for the PLCAA. It is disconcerting that Sanders continues to mouth NRA talking points.
