Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA)

I don't know how many people think of the PLCAA as a law protecting gun rights, but it is. According to Wikipedia's description of the demise of Intratec "It went out of business in 2001 under pressure of lawsuits and the anti-gun movement.

The anti-gun movement saw this as a way to enact a sort of gun control without having to enact laws. At first it appeared to be a succesful strategy.

Beretta was sued by New York City and Washington D.C. and the suits were dismissed under the PLCCA. I don't know how many other gun manufacturers were sued and found relief under the PLCAA.

Last week The Brady Center lost another PLCAA suit:

More and more precedents are being set supporting PLCAA, so it is a win for gun rights

In this case, the plaintiffs, who were represented by the Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence, sought to hold the firearms retailer liable in a wrongful death and negligence claim because a firearm had been stolen from his store.
So many lawyers. So few opportunities to get rich quick.
