North Carolina Senate Passes Lawsuit Bill

Thursday, July 18, 2002

On 16 July the North Carolina Senate overwhelmingly passed H. 622, the NRA-backed measure to stop reckless lawsuits against firearm manufacturers. By a vote of 42-5, the Senate agreed to prevent municipalities from filing politically-motivated lawsuits that attempt to hold gun makers liable for the criminal misuse of their products.

Through your phone calls and letters, H. 622 is almost law.  But, the job is not done quite yet.  H. 622 must now go back to the House for concurrence with the Senate changes to the bill.  You can again help by encouraging your Representative to support H. 622.  To contact your Representative, please call the main General Assembly number at (919) 733-7928 and ask for assistance.

Please contact your Senator today and thank him for helping to protect the lawful firearms industry.
