Score Another One For The Good Guys

From Roto-Reuters.com:
House to pass gun lawsuit shield legislation

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Republican-led House of Representatives on Thursday plans to approve legislation giving the U.S. gun industry sweeping protection from civil lawsuits, giving the powerful gun lobby a victory on one of its top priorities.

Both Republicans and Democrats predicted the 'Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms' bill would pass the House with bipartisan support. The Senate has already passed the legislation, and the White House strongly backs it.

The legislation would provide broad immunity from civil lawsuits filed by dozens of cities and municipalities against gun makers, dealers and distributors. It would also make it much harder for individuals to bring civil liability suits if they or their family members were harmed by guns.
Halle-fucking-lujah!
Say with me once again kids: "It's not the weapon that kills, it's the idiot holding the weapon."

People should be no more able to sue gun makers than they would be able to sue the manufacturers of Louisville Sluggers, Bowie knifes, Stanley hammers, or Chevrolet cars.
