Gun mfr protection bill passes the House
The House has passed the gun mfr. liability protection bill. Since it already passed the Senate, it now goes to the president for signature (and I gather there is no risk of veto, grin). Clayton Cramer remarks on claims that this makes the firearms industry "unregulated."
[UPDATE: the Library of Congress webpage indicates the House passed the Senate bill S.397. I should say suggests. A resolution calling for consideration of the Senate bill passed on 10/17, and then H Res 439 passed on 10/18, providing for the same.
Of course, you never really know until you see the final language. Sometimes the House will, just because it wants the final act to be a "House Bill," take a House bill, strike all its language, insert the Senate-passed language, and pass that. That way the final legislation is labelled as having been a House bill. Strange things happen in Congress.
