This is an interesting wrinkle in the debate between Mr. Sanders and Ms. Clinton for the Democratic nomination and it speaks to which club each belongs to.

(From CNS News)

In a heated moment at Sunday’s Democrat debate in Flint, Michigan, Sen. Bernie Sanders differed with Hillary Clinton on the issue of liability for gun manufacturers.

“What you’re really talking about is ending gun manufacturing in America. I don’t agree with that,” Sanders told Clinton…

…Sanders said Clinton was not responding to the issue at hand: “As I understand it — and maybe I’m wrong on this, but what you were essentially saying, and what people are saying, is that, if somebody who is crazy or a criminal or a horrible person goes around shooting people, the manufacturer of that gun should be held liable.

“And if that is your position, then what you are saying, essentially — if that is the case, as I understand it — it’s not what Secretary Clinton is talking about. I agree with what she said.

“But if that is the case, then essentially, your position is there should not be any guns in America, period.”
