The hell 'nobody wants to take our guns'

The batch of emails released by Wikileaks on October 7 includes one in which Hillary Clinton press secretary Brian Fallon explained that Clinton “would support…closing the gun show loophole by executive order.” 

Fallon also highlighted Clinton’s support of universal background checks–which have already failed in California, Colorado, Washington state, and Paris–and her support for a scenario wherein victims of crime would be able to sue gun manufacturers.
Which wouldn't do a damn thing about crime, but it would both put at least some manufacturers out of business, and open up the gates for trial lawyers to sue anyone about anything.  After all, if you can sue Ruger for what someone down the line did with a gun, why can't you sue Toyota because some drunk caused a wreck?

That's that nonexistent thing that the hoplophobes and gun bigots like Clinton like to claim needs closing. Borrowing from Tam, it's people doing legal stuff Clinton doesn't like, therefore it's a loophole and something must be done.
