ABA Sides With Gun-Ban Extremists

Friday, August 10, 2001

The American Bar Association (ABA) responded quickly to Monday`s California ruling against reckless lawsuits, passing a resolution on Tuesday that established an official position by the group to oppose laws prohibiting the type of lawsuit that the California Supreme Court so strongly rejected. The resolution should really come as no surprise, though, as the ABA has long supported attacks on our Right to Keep and Bear Arms. Furthermore, the financial incentive to allow such suits to continue should not be ignored. While the courts continue to reject these reckless lawsuits, attorneys promoting the suits continue to get paid for their services. If you wish to contact the ABA to object to its recent resolution, you can find contact information at www.abanet.org/email.html.
