Gun Makers Only Industry that Can’t be Sued. Wait, what?
Did you know that gun manufacturers are the only industry in America that is protected from lawsuits? Let that sink in. In 2005 Congress passed The federal Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA) which grants broad immunity from liability to gun manufacturers and dealers in federal and state courts. Toys are better regulated. Victims of gun violence are the only citizens with such restricted rights to sue a manufacturer of a dangerous product.
Sandy and Lonnie Phillips, whose daughter was killed in the Aurora Colorado movie theater shooting, are asking Congress to support the Equal Access to Justice for Victims of Gun Violence Act to repeal PLCAA . Click HERE to sign onto the letter to support Sandy and Lonnie.
