You have probably heard, or maybe you will soon, attacks from Hillary on a specific Sanders’ gun control vote. Let me clear the air for you so you can explain it to others and understand for yourself.
In 2005, Sanders voted for a bill that granted nearly complete immunity (aka protection from liability) to gun manufacturers and dealers. He explained that he voted for it because he felt the alternative was that manufacturers and retailers (especially small ones) would be unfairly held liable if a crime was committed with a gun they made or sold. That’s an example of Sanders being independent, bipartisan and choosing not to support silly, unreasonable gun control.
