A gun-rights group is challenging a New Jersey law in court. In some cases, the law would permit individuals to file lawsuits against firearm manufacturers and even individual firearm owners. The National Shooting Sports Foundation filed a lawsuit in US District Court this past week asking a judge to overturn the law passed by New Jersey earlier this year. [tweet_embed]November 21, 2022[/tweet_embed] The lawsuit says that the type of lawsuits that one could file under the New Jersey law is "baseless," and those baseless lawsuits are expressly forbidden per a law passed by the US Congress in 2005. This is not the first time the group has filed a lawsuit against a state that has passed gun legislation that contradicts what the 2nd amendment protects. They also filed a lawsuit against the state of Delaware for similar laws passed in that state before. [tweet_embed]November 21, 2022[/tweet_embed] The group's vice president, Lawrence G. Keane, says that the laws passed by Delaware, New Jersey, and others fly in the face of laws passed by Congress and violate the US Constitution. Keane made a statement saying the following: "These state laws are at odds with bedrock principles of American law, which does not hold manufacturers and sellers legally responsible for the actions of criminals and remote third parties over whom the manufacturer and seller has no control when they misuse lawfully sold products," With statements like this, Keane is making a strong stand to say that his group will not be intimidated or give up the mission that they have set themselves up for nothing. The group says that no other industry in the country has faced as many baseless and politically motivated lawsuits as ever before. They don't want to see the firearms industry continue under such pressure simply because they are the firearms industry.
