Calls for legislative action in response to the endless waves of mass shootings in the US tend to focus on mental health issues rather than the gun industry. In their Left & the Law segment, Jan Haaken and Mike Snedeker look at the history of protections from immunity granted to gun manufacturers in the US and recent lawsuits that challenge those protections. They discuss an important case filed by Mexico against a gun manufacturer in the US and the gun law passed in Oregon in November that is currently in limbo in the courts. They also take up challenges for the left in framing the epidemic of gun violence in the US.
