Movement on Gun Maker Liability Bill

Here is a brief note this morning (I don't usually do brief so enjoy it while you can). I noticed that the Senate is finally moving the gun lawsuit immunity bill forward. Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist moved debate on it ahead of work on a defense appropriation bill.

I've long supported this "immunity" since one community in one state could destroy the nation's firearm industry with one winning lawsuit. That they haven't won these suits is a credit to good sense left in our court system. Still, I believe it's just a matter of time before someone comes up with a winning combination and bankrupts one or more gun makers.

It's time to pass this bill. Call your Senators and let's get this done.
