O.H. Skinner says public nuisance lawsuits are the next 'Trojan horse' for the progressive agendaEXCLUSIVE - A consumer protection group is warning Republican governors against attempts by left-leaning lawyers to use public nuisance lawsuits as a backdoor way to outlaw guns.
The Alliance For Consumers (AFC), a nonprofit organization aimed at "ensuring consumer protection efforts, class action lawsuits, and attorney general enforcement actions benefit consumers," sent a letter to all GOP governors Friday saying that since the many state legislatures have recently flipped to a Republican majority, they should be on the lookout for progressive activists attacking gun rights through these legal actions.
"With victories through the legislative process becoming harder to achieve, the progressive left is increasingly looking to an alliance of activists, officials, and trial lawyers to weaponize the judicial system against conservatives and impose key policy priorities by way of public nuisance lawsuits," AFC president O.H. Skinner wrote.
"Under the guise of compensation for injuries to the overall public interest, these lawsuits open the door to courts imposing sweeping policy solutions outside the traditional governmental processes or otherwise reshaping the economy through massive money transfers," Skinner added.
