Co-sponsors Needed For Reckless Lawsuit Preemption Bill

Friday, November 2, 2001

Although the courts continue to throw out the reckless lawsuits designed to bankrupt law-abiding firearms manufacturers, the threat of these suits remains extremely high. And while 27 states have passed lawsuit preemption laws that prohibit such irresponsible action, we need to extend this common-sense reform at the federal level. H.R. 2037, introduced by U.S. Representatives Cliff Stearns (R-Fla.) and Chris John (D-La.), seeks to protect our Second Amendment rights by preventing firearms and ammunition manufacturers from being sued for the criminal misuse of their lawful products by third parties by creating a federal protection for manufacturers and sellers in the firearms and ammunition industry from court-imposed restrictions on interstate or foreign commerce.

While this bill already has strong bipartisan support—173 co-sponsors to date—we need to add to that list. If your U.S. Representative has not yet signed on as a co-sponsor for this much-needed legislation, he needs to hear from you today! To find out if your Representative is a co-sponsor, go to the Library of Congress website, then use the "Search" feature at the top of the page to find information on H.R. 2037. If your Representative is not a co-sponsor, you can contact him by calling the U.S. House of Representatives` main switchboard at (202) 225-3121, then asking to be transferred to your Representative`s office. For additional contact information, please use our "Write Your Reps" tool. Be sure to encourage your family, friends, and fellow firearm owners to contact their Representatives as well and encourage them to co-sponsor H.R. 2037!
