First of many such lawsuits

Last year Albany passed legislation, A-6762B/S-7196, encouraging lawsuits against the firearms industry based upon a “public nuisance” theory.

The first such lawsuit has been filed:

“A New York City woman wounded in last month’s mass shooting on a Brooklyn subway filed a lawsuit Tuesday against the maker of the handgun allegedly used in the attack and its parent company, accusing the firearm manufacturer of “reckless disregard for human life.” … In her lawsuit, filed in federal court in Brooklyn, Ilene Steur said Glock has “endangered the public health and safety” with the marketing, distribution and sales of its guns … In the lawsuit, Glock is accused of “marketing that emphasizes firearm characteristics such as their high capacity and ease of concealment, that appeal to prospective purchasers with criminal intent.” …”

This is complete BS. It’s like accusing McDonald’s of marketing burgers to fat people.

The PLCAA should block the case from moving forward, but the main idea behind the law is the flood the courts with such lawsuits and bleed the industry of money.
