Mexico sues U.S. gun makers for billions stating "negligent practices"!
Date: February 17, 2022
In early February, the attorneys general of 12 states and Washington DC expressed support for the Mexican government’s $10 Billion lawsuit against U.S. gun manufacturers. The lawsuit, filed in 2021, blames U.S. manufacturers for the increase in Mexico’s gun violence and rampant trafficking across the southern border. Among the defendants are Smith & Wesson, Colt and Glock, who filed a motion to dismiss the case based on a federal law that protects gun manufacturers from lawsuits such as these.
