Proposed Federal House Legislation HB2814

this is an anti-gun bill   evalutation

Another attempt by the anti-gun culture to open manufacturers up to civil responsibility for what criminals do. The thinking is that they can financially destroy the pro-gun movement by allowing civil courts to issue awards to plaintiffs that will financially ruin gun manufacturers.

Legislation Overview

Title: Equal Access to Justice for Victims of Gun Violence Act

Subject: Crime and law enforcement

Description: Removes limitations on the civil liability of gun manufacturers and the disclosure of gun trace data in civil actions. Specifically, the bill repeals the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act, which prohibits civil actions against a firearm or ammunition manufacturer, seller, importer, dealer, or trade association for damages resulting from the criminal or unlawful misuse of a firearm. Additionally, the bill states that firearms trace data maintained by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is not immune from legal process. Such data is subject to discovery; is admissible as evidence; and may be used, relied on, or disclosed in a civil action or administrative proceeding.

Session: 117th Congress

Last Action: Referred to the House Committee on the Judiciary.
