Senate Lawsuit Preemption Bill Needs More Co-sponsors
Friday, July 19, 2002
S. 2268, which seeks to block politically-motivated lawsuits that attempt to hold law-abiding gun makers liable for the criminal misuse of their products, continues to gain support. When we last reported, 13 Senators had signed their names to S. 2268—introduced by U.S. Senators Larry Craig (R-Id.) and Zell Miller (D-Ga.)—but thanks to the encouragement of NRA members and the pro-gun community, a total of 22 Senators have now signed on. This is excellent progress, but the bill still needs more co-sponsors. The House companion (H.R. 2037) already has more than half of that chamber’s members signed on as co-sponsors (227), and has progressed through subcommittee, so our focus has shifted to recruiting more support for the Senate bill. Please contact your U.S. Senators at (202) 224-3121 to urge them to co-sponsor this critical legislation.
