Congress OKs lawsuit shield for gun industry

"Congress gave the gun lobby its top legislative priority Thursday, passing a bill that would protect the firearms industry from massive lawsuits brought by crime victims. The White House says President Bush will sign it into law."

"The House voted 283-144 to send the bill to the president after supporters, led by the National Rifle Association, proclaimed it vital to protect the industry from being bankrupted by huge jury awards. Opponents, waging a tough battle against growing public support for the legislation, called it proof of the gun lobby's power over the Republican-controlled Congress."

"Dennis Henigan, director of the Brady Center's Legal Action Project, called the bill 'an unprecedented attack on the due process rights of victims injured by the misconduct of an industry that seeks to escape the legal rules that govern the rest of us. We believe state and federal courts across this nation are prepared to strike it down.'"

Bloomberg: Statement from Mayor Bloomberg on legislation that provides immunity to gun manufacturers

"The House of Representatives has today passed a disgraceful piece of legislation that will give gun manufacturers immunity from acting negligently. Hundreds of Americans are victimized every year by illegal handguns, and it is well-known that many of these guns are in criminal hands because some gun manufacturers turn a blind eye to dealers that sell guns to criminals. Congress' response to this enormous problem is to hand the gun industry sweeping blanket immunity from lawsuits by persons and communities injured by this irresponsible practice. No other industry has this type of protection."

"The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence today said that the House of Representatives' passage of a bill taking away the rights of gun victims is a step backwards for a country founded on the rule of law. The bill has already been approved by the Senate, and if signed into law by President Bush, would essentially place the entire gun industry beyond the bounds of civil liability law."

"This bill is built on a corrupt foundation of lies that will leave a legacy of pain and suffering. Proponents lie when they claim the gun industry is the most heavily regulated industry in America when, in fact, they are one of only two industries the other being the tobacco industry exempt from federal health and safety regulation. Now the unregulated gun industry will also enjoy protection from legitimate lawsuits by individuals like victims of the Washington, DC-area snipers injured by the reckless and negligent actions of gun manufacturers and dealers. This legislation will make the unregulated gun industry the most pampered industry in America."

"Passage today by the House of Representatives of S. 397 was hailed by the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms (CCRKBA) as an important tort reform accomplishment that will put an end to junk lawsuits against the firearms industry."

"'This important legislation will stop the anti-gunners cold in their attempts to bankrupt firearms manufacturers, distributors and retailers,' said CCRKBA Chairman Alan M. Gottlieb. 'It closes an important loophole through which extremist gun grabbers have been trying to use the courts to crush gun ownership in this country, when they could not get Congress or state legislatures to do their bidding.'"

"Almost all products have illegitimate uses and undesirable consequences. In 2002, 45,380 people died in car accidents, 838 children drowned, 474 children died in house fires, and 130 children died in bicycle accidents.."

"But Americans also used guns defensively more than two million times that year, and more than 90 percent of the time merely brandishing the weapon was sufficient to stop an attack."

"Data collected from doing a Nexis search on all accidental gun shot cases for children under age ten show that accidental shooters overwhelmingly are adults with long histories of arrests for violent crimes, alcoholism, suspended or revoked driver's licenses, and involvement in car crashes."

"Handgun owners no longer need permits to carry concealed weapons in Alaska. Also repealed are restrictions on carrying guns in a vehicle. These changes come after the passage of a new state anti-gun control law that keeps municipalities from passing gun control laws that are more restrictive than state law."

"It further calls for an additional section that would require a doctor treating someone for Alzheimer's dementia to ask the patient if they possess any firearms. If it's determined that they do, the doctor would be required to notify police, who would confiscate the patient's firearms identification and guns."

"Foley says the bill as presently worded doesn't go far enough, in that it is limited just to those with Alzheimer's dementia, leaving out other causes and forms of dementia. ..."

"Some believe this applies strictly to the rights of the states to maintain a militia, and that no private ownership of weapons is inherently guaranteed. Though I must ask them what happened to 'state' militias."

"Others believe the Second Amendment is a guarantee of an individual right to own guns. The standard argument against this is, 'But what about the well-regulated militia part?'"

"I think I’ve found the proper solution to this debate: Every person between the ages of 16 and 50 without a felony record should be required to own and be trained in the use of a firearm. It’s that simple."

"This solution addresses all of the arguments. Each individual has a firearm of his/her own, so that side of the argument should be satisfied. Each person is also trained in the use of said firearm by the government, more specifically by a state government just to get rid of that little issue, which I think qualifies as 'well-regulated.'"

Well-regulated, as was used in the text of the Second Amendment means "properly functioning" and "maintained in order."

"The newcomers include the Nightstalker, a semi-automatic pellet air rifle, and the Remmington Summit, a .177-caliber air rifle and a portable air gun range. Crosman in October will make the 11 millionth Pumpmaster—it debuted in 1966."
