More than 30 cities and counties have sued firearm makers in an attempt to force them to change the way they make and sell guns. State legislatures and the courts have not been slow to respond. Indeed, more than 30 states have passed laws banning city lawsuits against gun manufacturers. And in the courts, more than a third of the cases already have been dismissed or dropped. When commercial regulations, whether created by a legislature or created in the courts, in one state significantly affect commerce in other states, Congress has legitimate oversight authority in the situation. This is Congress` job; it`s time for its members to get to it.
