As Illinois is expected to become the eighth state that allows lawsuits against gun manufacturers, according to Fox32, Democrat Mayor of Chicago Brandon Johnson is responding to a massive spike in auto thefts and carjackings… by suing automobile manufacturers.

As reported by our distinguished colleagues at The Heartland Institute and Red State, Johnson has filed a lawsuit against automakers Kia and Hyundai blaming the manufacturers for “A critical defect in the companies’ vehicles led to a car theft crisis,” according to a City Hall press release.

The statement from the mayor’s office cites, “Kia America, Inc., Kia Corporation, Hyundai Motor America, and Hyundai Motor Company for their failure to include industry-standard engine immobilizers in multiple models of their vehicles, resulting in a steep rise in vehicle thefts, reckless driving, property damage, and a wide array of related violent crimes in Chicago.” (Excerpt from DC Enquirer.)
