Time to repeal gun industry’s exceptional legal immunity

Gun violence has been a problem for a long time, writes Allen Rostron in The Conversation, but recent shootings in Paris and San Bernardino have focused attention on the issue.  A key way to ensure that gun companies operate safely and responsibly would be to repeal the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act. Enacted in 2005, this federal law gave gun sellers a special immunity from legal responsibilities that is not enjoyed by any other industry.
