"...each Congressman swears to uphold the Constitution of the United States, and this bill is a step in satisfying that pledge. How so? The Second Amendment to the Constitution guarantees the individual's 'right to keep and bear arms.' However, as mentioned above, the firearms industry is relatively small. These lawsuits have already helped push two companies into bankruptcy. If the industry as a whole is forced into bankruptcy, the 'the right to keep and bear arms,' becomes academic."
