The Wisconsin State Assembly Will Vote on a Bill to Protect Gun Manufacturers From Lawsuits

The state Assembly was poised Wednesday to pass a Republican-authored bill that would limit gun and ammunition manufacturers’ legal liability.

Under the bill, no one could sue gun or ammunition manufacturers for damages relating to the lawful design, marketing or illegal use of their products. People could still sue for breach of contract or death and damages resulting from a defect in a product’s design.

The bill’s supporters include Wisconsin Gun Owners Inc. and the Firearm Industry Trade Association. They contend the bill protects gun rights and the industry from politically motivated and frivolous lawsuits.
