Description

The American Prospect reports that a Chicago sting operation, and its resulting city lawsuit against firearms and distributors, "part of a fast-growing legal trend, suggests the potential for litigation to open a new front in the decades-old war of attrition between promoters of gun control and the gun lobby. Some experts dismiss the suits as grandstanding. Others, citing a recent New York case, see them as in line with emerging legal trends."
