12. Yes - to protect the gun industry

have to protect the hand that feeds you first.

The PLCAA actually allows for law suits in the case of negligence, poor design, shoddy workmanship, and violation of state/federal laws. What the PLCAA says is that if all the laws are followed then gun manufacturers can't be sued for the actions of a third party. Just like you can't sue Ford or Coors if a drunk driver harms you.

The fundamental flaw in your argument is that the most violent elements of society won't purchase it - you expecting all those criminal illegal gun owners to obey this law and none of the rest?

Another issue is that no insurance company will pay out for illegal acts. They are not stupid - no business would leave themselves liable for paying out for another Sandy Hook or Las Vegas. As a matter of fact, post-Sandy Hook, insurance companies started adding language to their policies to ensure there was no doubt. So with the exception of true accidents, people damaged by guns will not get anything.
