    Federal Judge Dismisses Junk Lawsuit Against Glock et al.
    National Shooting Sports Foundation ^ | 3/6/06 | n/a


    PROTECTION OF LAWFUL COMMERCE IN ARMS ACT FORCES DISMISSAL OF JUNK LAWSUIT AGAINST GLOCK, RSR . . .

    Today, in a 58-page decision, Los Angeles-based federal district court Judge Audrey B. Collins became the first judge in the nation to dismiss a junk lawsuit based on the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act, signed into law by President Bush in October. The judge dismissed a public-nuisance lawsuit filed against Glock and the distributor RSR brought by victims and family members of the now infamous "Jewish Daycare Center" shooting in Los Angeles in 1999 by Buford Furrow, a crazed homicidal maniac. Furrow illegally obtained and criminally misused a Glock pistol originally sold by Glock to a Washington state police department. RSR never owned, sold or possessed the firearm. "It is fitting that this case was the first ever dismissed based on the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act because the facts made this case the poster child for passage of common sense legal reform," said Lawrence G. Keane, NSSF senior vice president and general counsel.

    obtained and criminally misused a Glock pistol
    There you have it - no way to even try to hold Glock responsible.

    Good result - sanity and logic and law can prevail

    You beat me to it!! I am both somewhat amazed and very pleased that common sense prevailed.

    I talked to a therapist last year who had moved to Indy from LA. She said in actuality, except for Hollywood, Southern California is conservative and the north is liberal. With SF I can see the north being liberal. I was surprised at her saying the South was conservative.
