NOTES: Article deals with the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms (PLCA) Act, the “legal equivalent of a bulletproof vest for gun manufacturers, shielding them from all liability in the majority of civil lawsuits arising out of the unlawful use of their products.” (2) Avoidance for profit: to avoid liability, gun manufacturers could simply stop making the guns that are most frequently used by criminals. Or, gun manufacturers could restrict the marketing of these guns to only law enforcement agencies. (3) Rather, gun lobby passed changed the law so that “courts are required by law to dismiss the vast majority of lawsuits against gun manufacturers arising out of unlawful gun violence.”
