US Gun Makers Can Be Sued For Making Cheap Weapons


A court ruling in Illinois is being called a victory by gun-control advocates after the Judge said that gun makers could be sued for flooding the market with cheap weapons. This causes a public nuisance.

Gun-rights groups have accused the Judge of making a silly ruling because they say manufacturers of other products could also be covered by it, for example makers of hypodermic needles.

It was argued that gun makers created and "nurtured a climate of violence" in Chicago by making and selling many more than could ever be used by only law abiding citizens.
