NY trying to get around Protection Lawful Commerce

It's death by a thousand cuts time.
New York state is trying to get around the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA).
The bill, passed by the Democratic-controlled State Legislature, is the first of its kind in the nation to specifically classify the illegal or improper marketing or sale of guns as a nuisance — a technical classification that state lawmakers say would open the gun industry to civil liability suits in New York.
(Note: President Biden is in favor of repealing the PLCAA but that is a separate matter. The NY law would try to get around the PLCAA.)
State lawmakers believe that the gun industry can be held liable under state law if its sales and marketing practices create a nuisance. The bill requires that gun companies establish “reasonable controls” to prevent their guns from being used, marketed or sold illegally in New York.
I read the article and I didn't get what "reasonable controls" gun companies were suppose to implement I just got the vague feeling that if a gun were used in a crime then the gun manufacturer HAD NOT implemented "reasonable controls" but that's just me.

My personal view is the gun manufacturers are the only ones that have something like the PLCAA because they are the only ones threatened to be put out of business if they DIDN'T have something like the PLCAA.
