City Urges U.S. Senate To Reject Bill On Gun Suits

City officials are urging the United States Senate to reject a bill, scheduled for a vote in the next few weeks, that would shield the gun industry from lawsuits claiming that guns are a public nuisance, a legal strategy that the city has been pursuing for four years. The bill would grant the gun industry broad immunity from civil lawsuits brought by municipalities and individuals who claim that the gun industry fails to exercise adequate control over gun dealers. It would also probably spell the end of efforts by New York and several other cities seeking to make gun manufacturers and distributors liable for weapons used to commit crimes.
