YES!!!!! Bernie supports repeal of PLCAA!!!!!! Fuck the NRA!!!!!!

Democratic Sen. Bernie Sanders is announcing his support for legislation that would reverse a 2005 law granting gun manufacturers legal immunity that he once supported

CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) On the eve of the next Democratic debate, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders announced his support for legislation that would reverse a 2005 law granting gun manufacturers legal immunity that he once supported.

Sanders' changed position came in a statement issued after days of attacks from rival Hillary Clinton, who had attempted to use his previous vote to undercut his liberal image.

The two candidates, along with former Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley, will meet Sunday for the last debate before voting begins in the Iowa caucuses a match-up that's expected to be far more contentious than their previous three forums.


The debate was scheduled to take place just blocks from the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church, where nine parishioners were killed in a mass shooting last summer. Gun control has emerged as a central theme in the race, with Clinton citing it as one of the major differences between the candidates.

2. One has to distinguish between flips and flops.

 

This one looks like a flip to me.

Special corporate legal protections for the gun industry has never resonated well with Bernie's main message here in Iowa.

This is really good news for us here.

3. Well, I don't know how well that will work

considering her recent flips on single payer. The last thing she needs to do is open herself up for that comparison.

Sanders want to protect people with his flip. Hillary is actually hurting people with her flop. That shit would write itself.

That said, look for her to do exactly that since she's been a stumbling, fumbling politician lately. She's her own worst enemy right now.
