From the NRA

On Wednesday, October 26, President George W. Bush signed into law the NRA-backed “Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act” (S. 397)–legislation to end politically motivated lawsuits designed to bankrupt law-abiding American firearm manufacturers and retailers. S. 397 passed both chambers of Congress with broad bipartisan support; in recent years, 33 states have passed similar legislation.

Having lost this extremely significant battle in Congress, the anti-gunners have again taken their show to the courts–and activist judges–in an attempt to circumvent and challenge the new law.

On December 2, anti-gun New York Federal Judge Jack B. Weinstein ruled that New York City’s lawsuit against law-abiding firearm manufacturers and retailers could move forward.
