NRA calls Bernie Sanders 'spot-on' when it comes to gun manufacturer liability

During the Democratic debate in Flint, Michigan, on Sunday, Bernie Sanders proudly touted his "D-minus rating" from the NRA, but the organization was quick to praise him the next day.

"Sen. Sanders was spot-on in his comments about gun manufacturer liability," the NRA said on Twitter Monday. During the debate, Sanders said he did not agree with Hillary Clinton that gun manufacturers should be held accountable if a crime is committed with one of their products. "If you go to a store and you legally purchase a gun, and three days later you go out and start killing people, is the point to hold the gun shop owner or the manufacturer of that gun liable?" he said. "If that's the point, I disagree. If they are selling a product to a person who buys it legally, what you're talking about is ending gun manufacturing in America."

Before everyone on both sides of the debate lose their minds, the NRA followed up by tweeting that both Democratic candidates are "equally unacceptable on the Second Amendment," and they are "NOT feeling the bern!" Sounds like someone just dodged a bullet.
