    Would S. 659 (or its house counterpart HR 1036) prohibit a lawsuit against a firearms retailer who committed some transgression such as failing to report a stolen weapon? Or does it merely prevent frivilous lawsuits against manufacturers?

    No. A dealer who breaks the law would still be subject to prosecution. The bill only protects manufacturers, dealers and distributors from being sued for the illegal use of the products.

    You can still sue a manufacturer for selling a defective firearm.
