NRA priority legislation provides the foundation for Lucky Gunner Win! Sometimes victory is years in the making.
A recent court victory, however, reminds all of us how important the NRA-ILA’s legislative victories can be, even many years or decades down the road.
Our hat is off to all the NRA members who answered the call to action while we waged a seven year pitched battle to protect firearm manufacturers and dealers against frivolous lawsuits for the criminal misuse of firearms and ammunition.
Your calls, emails, and letters from so many years ago were answered in the affirmative earlier this week.
NRA supporters will remember that on October 26, 2005, President George W. Bush signed into law S. 397, NRA-ILA’s priority legislation known as the “Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act” (PLCAA).
This legislation was meant to protect the firearm industry from a coordinated campaign of anti-gun lawsuits claiming gun manufacturers and dealers were responsible for the criminal acts of third parties who were unknown to them and totally beyond their control.
