George Soros is now targeting guns and gun companies through his advocacy organization in an attempt to repeal the act protecting firearms manufacturers from liability for gun crimes committed with the weapons they produce.
Washington Free Beacon reports:
The Open Society Policy Center, Soros’s D.C.-based 501(c)4 nonprofit that works on domestic and international advocacy and is affiliated with the much larger Open Society Foundations, has poured nearly $9 million into such efforts so far this year.
Soros’s group reported spending $2.6 million on lobbying throughout the first quarter, covering international, military, and appropriations issues. In addition, the center moved into gun control advocacy and reported lobbying on “issues related to a bill to repeal the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act.”
The Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA) was passed as a bulwark against frivolous lawsuits attempting to hold gun companies responsible for criminal acts committed by third parties—sometimes decades after the first legal sale of the firearm.
Who could have ever predicted that George Soros would be behind trying to strip or restrict American’s Second Amendment rights?
