"Relating to open ocean aquaculture in the federal exclusive economic zone. "


"This resolution requests the United States Congress to stop abusive, politically driven litigation against law-abiding individuals for the misbehavior of criminals over whom they have no control."
- Sen. Huggins

 

Senate Joint Resolution 15 addresses the abuse of our nation's courts through predatory lawsuits against the U.S. firearms industry - suits attempting to force law-abiding businesses to pay for criminal acts by individuals beyond their control. Alaska is one of thirty-three other states that have passed legislation protecting firearms and ammunition manufacturers, and this resolution will advocate for the current legislation in the United States Congress supporting this measure (S.397).

Lawsuits against the firearm industry are based on gun controller activist vendetta against the gun owners of this country. Even though these cases are often unsuccessful, the cost of the lawsuits threatens an important industry in America. In addition, the lawsuits do nothing to curb criminal gun violence. This resolution requests the United States Congress to stop abusive, politically driven litigation against law-abiding individuals for the misbehavior of criminals over whom they have no control.

I encourage the Legislature to champion SJR 15. Thank you.
