39. I've seen the threads, even posted in them. Fact is, Bernie voted to give the gun industry legal

immunity. And in so doing, denied victims of gun violence the fundamental right of access to the courts. Sorry, but NRA talking points don't get him off the hook for this.

21. Here are the jury results I believe you're referring to:

 

http://www.democraticunderground.com/10026904425


Juror #1 voted to HIDE IT
Explanation: Gunz thread in GD, against rules. But I've got no respect for Gun Humpers. Yep, Gun Humpers.

Gun Humpers Gun Humpers Gun Humpers Gun Humpers Gun Humpers Gun Humpers Gun Humpers Gun Humpers Gun Humpers Gun Humpers Gun Humpers Gun Humpers Gun Humpers Gun Humpers Gun Humpers Gun Humpers Gun Humpers Gun Humpers Gun Humpers Gun Humpers Gun Humpers Gun Humpers Gun Humpers Gun Humpers Gun Humpers Gun Humpers Gun Humpers Gun Humpers Gun Humpers Gun Humpers Gun Humpers Gun Humpers...

That's what they are. Gun Luv is sick.

Juror #2 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: No explanation given
Juror #3 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: This is a dumb post but I say leave it there so everybody can see how dumb it is. Sanders is no more a gun humper" than my dog, he's exercising common sense.
Juror #4 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: No explanation given
Juror #5 voted to HIDE IT
Explanation: Ridiculous and over the top post. You can't sue Ford if you get run over by one of their trucks due to an irresponsible driver behind the wheel.
Juror #6 voted to HIDE IT
Explanation: Garbled gibberish apperently meant to stir shit? That's all it looks like to me.
Juror #7 voted to HIDE IT
Explanation: Here's a big ole hide from me to you. Hope my fellow jurors feel the same way. Troll.

22. Here is a link for you

From the Slate article.
Bernie Sanders, Gun Nut
He supported the most reprehensible pro-gun legislation in recent memory.
When Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders jumped into the 2016 presidential race, he was widely hailed as a far-left socialist who would appeal to the liberal wing of the Democratic Party. A liberal challenge to Hillary Clinton, said Politico. True progressives’ liberal alternative, trumpeted FiveThirtyEight. But before liberal Democrats flock to Sanders, they should remember that the Vermont senator stands firmly to Clinton’s right on one issue of overwhelming importance to the Democratic base: gun control. During his time in Congress, Sanders opposed several moderate gun control bills. He also supported the most odious NRA–backed law in recent memory—one that may block Sandy Hook families from winning a lawsuit against the manufacturer of the gun used to massacre their children.

30. How do you explain his support for PLCCA - No liability for gun makers

The PLCAA changed all that. Remarkably, the act wiped out gun liability laws in all 50 states, rendering them invalid except for a handful of narrow exceptions. (So much for states’ rights.) Thanks to the law, victims of mass shootings are barred from suing the companies that produced a wartime weapon that no civilian could ever need. With few exceptions, victims cannot sue a gun seller for negligently providing a semiautomatic weapon to a lunatic who shoots them in a movie theater. Even if a jury decides a gun maker or seller should be liable, the PLCAA invalidates its verdict. The law tramples upon states’ rights, juries’ rights, and fundamental precepts of America’s civil justice system. And it received Bernie Sanders’ support—in both 2003 (when it was first introduced) and 2005 (when it finally passed).
Right now, the families of Sandy Hook victims are searching for a loophole in the law, so they can sue Bushmaster for making the gun that sent 154 bullets through 20 children and six adults in 264 seconds. They will probably fail.

35. ok

 

This is giving me something new to weigh with Sanders.

I'll be looking into this, which probably won't mean changing my mind about
supporting Sanders.

Snap. For a few months there I was beginning to think there was actually something
like a "perfect progressive candidate" for POTUS.

If they can find something factual like, he's a socialist, post that because it's the truth and some people don't like socialists.

41. Access to the courts is a fundamental right. Bernie denied that to victims of gun violence.

And, yes, you can sue a distillery for whatever you want. Of course, if you bring frivolous lawsuits, not only will you lose, but you'll have to pay the defendant's legal costs. Is there any reason the gun industry should get special privilege? Of course not. Except that the NRA wanted it that way, and Bernie complied.

He owns this. And it completely undercuts his claim to be against corporate power.
