House Bill 218 attempts to regulate how firearms may be advertised by gun sellers and manufacturers.  In reality, it’s a gift to the trial lawyers to allow them to file nuisance lawsuits against the gun industry.  It passed the Illinois House yesterday and goes to the Senate where its passage is virtually assured.

Illinois isn’t the only state to pass such a measure and it will take the courts to sort it out.  And that will cost money.

  1. Wanna be tyrant and sack of s**t JB has dreams of possibly running a primary against Loaded Diaper Biden. This Marxist filth knows Biden is weak, his party can help cheat in the election, and we have plenty of commie voters that can’t get enough abuse and would vote for him. To stand out and win favor from the freedom hating Dummycrat filth that votes he REALLY wanted to be able to kill the Second Amendment in Illinois and use that as a platform that he can do it nationwide. Thats falling apart so he’s guiding his stooges to come up with a anything that could save face.

    1. Putzker is just a much fatter version of Gov. Hairgel in California. Fellow communists under the skin. Both are working their voodoo dolls of Comrade Potato Head furiously so they can be POTUS instead.

    1. In his conclusion, Payne wrote: ‘The Government simply has not met its burden to support the finding that restrictions on the purchasing of firearms by 18-to-20-year old’s is part of our Nation’s history and tradition.

      ‘Founding-era militia laws provide circumstantial evidence that 18-to-20-year-olds could purchase, own, and use arms.

      ‘Because the statutes and regulations in question are not consistent with our Nation’s history and tradition, they, therefore, cannot stand.’

  2. PLCAA already forbids states and other bad actors from levying nuisance lawsuits against the manufacturers of guns. The only lawsuits allowed are on the basis of a defective product. This has been the law of the land for nearly 30 years, and was required because states like California and New Jersey demonstrated a systematic attempt to bankrupt gun manufacturers by suing them repeatedly over false claims.

    I don’t expect Illinois to have any respect for existing Federal law, just as they don’t respect 2A or the recent SCOTUS decisions such as MacDonald, Heller and Bruen.

  3. Looks like another place for a well written lawsuit. As if you didn’t have enough of those.
