Colorado: Lawsuits by People Attacked in ‘Gun Free Zones’

by Awr Hawking, Big Government

As CO Democrats push to allow victims of gun violence to sue gun makers over crime, Republican legislators in the state need to answer in kind and put forth legislation making it easier for those who are attacked, molested, or shot in “gun free zones” to sue for damages as well.

In this way, the cries to hold gun manufacturers liable for the misuse of their products would be drowned out by the reasonable proposition that those who deny us the exercise of our 2nd Amendment rights bear responsibility for our safety while we are on their property or in their businesses.

What a brilliant strategy! I hope they pull this off.

    I don’t like giving lawyers more rason to lawyer,but this would be a good cock block.

    Great idea. Awful party. The RINOs will be all bluster but will cave as soon as they get the chance.

    On the other hand, the victims can sue regardless, while making the claim that if a mall, theater, or school institutes a gun free zone, then it is incumbent upon those that created the zone to protect those who enter it. I believe you can claim there is a reasonable expectation of safety. Otherwise, why create a gun free zone?

    Allow me to play devil’s advocate. If I were a socialist, I would love this type of scenario because it would allow me to lawfully restrict the rights and movements of people.

    Suppose I designate a park as a “gun free zone,” and I can be sued if a gun crime is committed in the park. It would stand to reason that in order to protect myself from legal liability, I can search any person for any reason in order to determine whether or not that person has possession of a firearm. Furthermore, and assuming that my gun free park too large to fence and provide controlled access, I should have the right to search any person already in the park for prohibited firearms.

    Let us assume further that my right to search people proves ineffective to eliminate all gun crime in my park – some sneaky bastard still finds a way to get a gun into my gun free zone. By claiming that people who want to come to my park are demanding that I do whatever is necessary to ensure the park remains a gun free zone, I should eventually gain the right to become even more intrusive – perhaps I can legally strip search all attractive coeds who want to enjoy the park all under the guise of providing the safety the public wants.

    It is tempting to fight fire with fire, but sometimes this results in burning everything completely to the ground.

    Let’s turn the sleazy lawyers loose on all of productive society because of the actions of third parties.

    What could possibly go wrong?

    I mean other than the bankruptcy of all gun manufacturers and any business who puts a no guns sign in their windows.

    How about we just start calling anti American Democrat garbage for what they are, instead, instead of trying to out stupid them?

    Can they defend from being sued by arguing that by the act of entering a gun free zone you have knowingly agreed to not bear arms there? If I were a lawyer for the defense that’s the first defense I’d think of.

    We need to be a little more “ends justify the means” back at the libslime, because we’re losing the war here.
    Any arm twisting we can do to solidify our rights is agreeable to me, especially when you see what the left is willing to do to try and nullify them.

    It’s about time! I’ve been talking about this for years. All hospitals are “gun-free zones”, and most of them I’ve worked it have been located in crappy neighborhoods. I told my wife 10 years ago that if anything ever happened to me because I was forcibly disarmed by my employer, for her to sue the place for all that it’s worth.

    We need to start suing legislators for the effects of the laws they pass. If I can be sued for malpractice, why can’t a member of Congress? John Conyers (for one example out of many) openly admitted he voted on Obamacare without reading it. Do you have ANY idea of the shitstorm that would fall if I even implied that I wrote a treatment order on a patient without reading the first thing in their chart?

    Every family member of every person injured or killed in a ‘gun-free zone’ should be filing suit against the government body (and the it’s individual members) who passed the law.
