ILA | Wisconsin: Assembly Passes Frivolous Lawsuit Prevention Bill


Yesterday, the Assembly passed Senate Bill 570, to protect Second Amendment rights from frivolous lawsuits. It now goes to Governor Tony Evers for his consideration. NRA thanks the sponsor, Senator Julian Bradley (R-28), as well as all the other lawmakers who supported this bill along the way. Please contact Gov. Evers and ask him to sign SB 570 into law.

Senate Bill 570 protects firearm dealers, manufacturers, distributors, etc., from frivolous lawsuits for the criminal or unlawful use of their product. While federal law currently has this protection, as the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA), President Biden has promised to repeal it as a main part of his assault on the Second Amendment. Prior to Congress passing PLCAA in 2005, 34 states passed similar laws on their own. In addition, Iowa passed such legislation last year. With this bill, Wisconsin will add an additional layer of protection to prevent anti-gun extremists from attempting to bankrupt law-abiding businesses by suing them for the third party, criminal misuse of their legal products.

Again, please contact Gov. Evers and ask him to sign SB 570 into law.
