(NRCC News) – Democrats have a habit of coming up with completely nonsensical laws that infringe on our rights as Americans. They also despise capitalism. Between wanting to strip our rights and crush our capitalistic society, Democrats spend much of their time coming up with unconstitutional legislation rather than working to fix actual problems for Americans.
Fortunately we still have the judicial system which tends to work the way it’s supposed to more often than not, excluding the corrupt DOJ. On Tuesday, that’s exactly what happened when a federal judge ruled to block a New Jersey law that allows the state’s attorney general to take legal action against gun manufacturers.
U.S. District Judge Zahid Nisar Quraishi, shockingly an appointee of Joe Biden, granted a preliminary injunction against New Jersey’s “public nuisance” law, saying it is in “direct conflict” with the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA), according to the opinion in the United States District Court of New Jersey Trenton Vicinage. The “public nuisance” law permits the attorney general to seek legal action against gun manufacturers if it is determined that they endangered public safety through sales or marketing practices.
It’s complete rubbish.
In contrast, the PLCAA, enacted in 2005, protects gun manufacturers and dealers from being held liable when criminals use their products to commit crimes. The opinion was delivered in the NSSF v Platkin case and comes after a Monday ruling by U.S. District Judge Reneé Marie Bumb, who placed a second temporary restraining order on portions of New Jersey’s concealed carry law.
“We think this is important because other states are currently considering public nuisance statues modeled on what New Jersey, New York, Delaware and California have done,” Lawrence Keane, a senior vice president for government and public affairs at the National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF) and plaintiff in the case, told Politico.
“We will be filing a lawsuit in the coming months in California to challenge the California statute. Today’s decision will be impactful in giving other state legislatures pause before they enact an unconstitutional law,” he added.

As you can expect, Democratic New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy was “disappointed” by Quraishi’s opinion, but is “confident that this decision will be swiftly reversed on appeal,” as asserted by a spokesperson.
“The district court’s decision enjoining New Jersey’s public nuisance law is unprecedented and unsupportable,” New Jersey Attorney General Matthew Platkin told the Daily Caller News Foundation. “The New Jersey Legislature acted lawfully when it adopted public nuisance legislation to hold the gun industry accountable, and nothing in federal law allows firearms manufacturers to violate our state statutes with impunity.”
The only way these so-called “public nuisance” laws would be justifiable is if gun manufacturers advertised their products by promoting mass shootings or gun violence against innocent humans, which they clearly do not. These laws are nothing more than a brazen attempt by radical anti-Second Amendment zealots on the left to disarm the American people by any means necessary. They’re unconstitutional at best, tyrannical at worst.
The scary part is Gov. Murphy is probably right. The Tuesday ruling just might be overturned on appeal. Unfortunately there are activist judges sitting on benches that ought not to be. This case is going to come down to the luck of the draw.
