A law suit isn't going to go anywhere. They sell a product that does what it is made to do. There is no failure to work as advertised and no negligence on the part of the manufacturer. Its like suing a knife maker for making a knife or a bat maker making a baseball bat that are used in a crime. The manufacturer is not responsible in any way for the way it is used by a purchaser. The suit will only make the anti-gunners look stupid when they rant about how the gun lobby supported the use of a bump stock in a crime.

They do not expect a different result. Some of the antigunners are not idiots as much as some think so. They know that a lawsuit like this is still born. But in the Liberal court of public opinion slide fire is guilty of murder. So they can say something like
"We tried but the laws must change before anything can be done to stop this because if we just had no guns, there would be clean water in Flint Michigan, no more hurricanes, and south Chicago would look like Mayberry, so donate to the Brady Bunch and vote for candidate (x) to make legislative changes".

+1, hence my earlier assertion that this lawsuit is cynically designed to fail for propaganda purposes.

They want the PLCAA to be repealed, but when talking their base of support, it's hard to explain WHY. So yes, they're proverbially banging their heads against a brick wall, but understand that they're doing it to demonstrate that the wall is there.
