Civil rights attorney David Kairys came up with a novel way to sue gun manufacturers. In a Temple Law Review article, Kairys advocated treating guns as like a public nuisance, much like a "noisy bar" or "crack houses." Kairys is particularly interested in suing the makers of handguns, such as Beretta, Bryco, Colt, Glock and Smith & Wesson. He's had a hard time beating the gun lobby in Pennsylvania, which has the second-largest NRA membership in the nation, and more Pennsylvanians "have permits to carry concealed weapons than in any other state..." According to the ATF, slightly more than 1 percent of the dealers fed more than half the criminal market."
