SUING THE GUN INDUSTRY….Gun control

SUING THE GUN INDUSTRY….Gun control is not one of my hot button issues, so I haven’t been following the gun lawsuit in New York very closely. But Brian Linse has, and he thinks it could do for the gun industry what tobacco lawsuits are doing to the cigarette industry.

Even if I agree with their goals, I’m not entirely supportive of efforts like these to use the courts to accomplish things that really ought to be handled by legislatures. Still, Brian is right: it’s an interesting case and it could have far reaching consequences. It’s worth checking up on.
