The question was what limits I would like to see. Not what would hold up under legal challenge. And I am no more anti-American than those who continue with their fetishistic worship of guns, supporting a special status to the industry. Some of the restrictions were part of our history, even supported by the NRA, before the new gun religion took over. Let the carnage continue!Held to be in violation of the Tenth Amendment by the Supreme Court in Printz v. United States, 521 U.S. 898 (1997) and struck from the illegal Brady Bill.
Held to be in violation of the Second Amendment by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in August 2020.
The National Rifle Association scored a massive victory in California on Friday when a three-judge panel on the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals overturned the state's ban on large-capacity magazines that hold more than 10 rounds of ammunition.www.washingtonexaminer.com
The Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act of 2005 (Public Law 109-92) is here to stay. The bill passed the House just 7 votes shy of a two-thirds majority, and it passed the Senate with just 2 votes short of a two-thirds majority. So there will be no repealing this law. You and your ilk will just have to find some other way to impose your anti-American fascism, because frivolous law suits against gun manufacturers won't cut it.
Any judge who even attempts to hear a case against gun manufacturers can be impeached for violating the above law.
So why not make all industries free from any liability?In the 2010 report "Summary of Select Firearms Violence Prevention Strategies" the DOJ noted that “universal” background checks can’t be effective without a reduction in the illegal sources of guns to criminals and can’t be enforced without comprehensive firearm registration.
In "Source and Use of Firearms Involved in Crimes: Survey of Prison Inmates, 2016", the DOJ reported in Table 5 where criminals get their guns. We see that vast majority of guns in the hands of criminals come from straw purchases, family transfers, theft and the underground market (Illegal sources of firearms that include markets for stolen goods, middlemen for stolen goods, criminals or criminal enterprises, or individuals or groups involved in sales of illegal drug). A total of 0.8% come from gun shows. Purchases from "good guys" in private sales don't even show up.
What does a UBC do to prevent criminals from getting guns?

What limit is needed? Denver said 20; Colorado said 15; California uses 10; New York wanted 7; Oregon has proposed just 5.
Given that there will still be over 2 billion "large capacity magazines" in circulation, what's the point with this law?
Why should a manufacturer be liable a crime committed by someone not legally allowed to possess a gun? How can they prevent a felon from shooting someone with a gun acquired illegally?
