Colorado lawmakers want gun owners exposed to civil liability

Source: Reuters

DENVER - Owners and makers of assault-style weapons would face civil liability under a package of measures unveiled on Tuesday by top lawmakers in Colorado, a state shaken by some of the deadliest shootings in U.S. history.

The bills, introduced by Democrats who control the state legislature, could push Colorado to the forefront of a national gun control debate reignited by several mass shootings last year, including massacres of schoolchildren in Newtown, Connecticut, and moviegoers in suburban Denver.

Other states such as New York have moved to further restrict military-style assault weapons. But if the measures become law, Colorado would hold owners, manufacturers and distributors of firearms more accountable for gun violence.

Owners of semi-automatic rifles would be subject to strict liability for civil damages caused by their weapons, and state statutes that shield manufacturers, importers and dealers from such liability would be lifted.

Fascist Pig,

As a Low Information/Low Integrity Poster you are blessed in that you have an empty vessel that can be filled with knowledge.

Lucky YOU, poor US.

Since you have shared you limited wisdom on the thread about the Saudi Demokrat that raped and murdered his daughter, i assume you have a crumb of knowledge about Law and Culture.

Why not go fully Fascist in your frightened Totalitarian mind?

So go ahead Frightened Child, advocate for Sharia law in you Amerika. You will not need to fear the Evil Gun any longer.

You will get laid in Heaven to makeup for the lack of human contact you have on this Astral Plane. As a special benefit to Humans like you, Ol' Allah did not specify that all the 72 Virgins you will be rewarded were to be the Female Kind, and so you can order up from God the Little BOI's you desire.

No Guns, and all the sex you missed on Earth because of the defects of your appearnce!......A Defective Demokrats Dream.

Go Allah!

Seig!

Another piece of feel good legislation that does nothing. A private gun owner can already be sued if he/she does something foolish like shoot the neighbors dog accidentally. He/she should never be held liable, criminally or civilly, if someone steals his weapon (already a crime) and uses it to commit additional crimes.

"Another piece of feel good legislation that does nothing."

As someone that shows he has knowledge of history, you will understand when I say that your comment I quoted is the classic act of a King that needs to assuage the Masses by offering his Servants Blood and Bread in the Arena in order to keep the Sheeple's eyes off the destruction that the King is bringing forth to his Sheeple.

Why do so many Amerikans content themselves on the emptiness of the Kings Offerings?

Only those who can afford the insurance will be able to exercise their 2nd Amendment rights if this bill is passed and signed into law.

No rights, without responsibility... What's unfair about that ?

Oh, you want "society" to pay for your right, because you like freebies ???

There are many "tools" that the Social Engineers of the Collectivist Totalitarians can apply so that "We the People" to lose our rights.

To illustrate.

In New York, the Fascist Police State made it the "Law" that any magazine capacity must be limited to 7 cartridges.

If you know weapons,(as I suspect you do), you know that there is no such thing as a 7 cartridge capacity magazine for a semi-automatic weapon.

Thus, you can own the weapon that you choose as a Free and Responsible Citizen of King Barry's Fiefdom, but you cannot use the weapon for its intended purpose because a Magazine does not exist for your weapon of choice.

So, if you ever were curious about the "Magical" 7 Cartridge requirement, now you understand.

You can't own a grenade launcher, either... Even if it's your "weapon of choice".

Funny, you want society to take on your responsibility, AGAIN !????

I think my brother has a couple semi-auto handguns in .45ACP that hold seven rounds in the magazine. I belive the law allows ten round magazines but only 7 can be loaded into the magazine. I wonder if that means the gun can be loaded with 8 rounds and still be legal?

If the gun owner doesn't keep their weapon properly secured (ie locked up) and it is stolen, the gun owner should be held liable for anything done with that gun.

If a gun owner sells of lends a gun to someone that hasn't passed a background check, the gun owner should be held liable for anything done with that gun.

Americans should be able to own fully automatic weapons, rocket launchers, artillery, and tactical nuclear weapons as well. There should be NO limits on what an American can own, and background checks are a violation of my rights.

So if you park your car on the street, I steal it, and then kill someone with it, you think you are civilly and criminally responsible?
