NRA to push junk gun lawsuit ban (again)

NRA has gun lawsuits in cross hairs

I hope it passes this time. Filing lawsuits against dealers and manufactures has been becoming a way to institute "gun reform" without going through the typical legislative process.

Ditto. There's just way too many ways to point out the silliness of such actions. If they're not successful, I'll look forward to Ford and GM paying for all those drunk driving fatalities. They'll have to pin the blame for 9/11 on Boeing, too.

NRA to push junk gun lawsuit ban (again)

While their at it, I think their needs to be a federal law that says no state, county, or municipality in the federation can abridge, modify, or tinker with the second amendment. I'm just getting sick and tired of every town council, activist county seat holder, or state house rep imposing their gun beliefs over federal law.

For pete's sake this is the second amendment of the constitution. We don't allow local government to tinker with the other constitutional rights. How jacked up would it sound if we let city councilors redefine free speech or freedom of religion? But yet we let them play with the second amendment.....

CO recently passed a state law that said no county or municipality could make any gun control law that abridged state law. The law went on to say that state law would match federal law. Fine, great. The city of denver then sued the state and some judge let them win (i believe the case is in appeal), and now the city of denver gets to make whatever gun laws they see fit.
