Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA)

15 U.S.C. §§ 7901-7903

  • Signed into law by President George W. Bush on October 26, 2005

United States law which protects firearms manufacturers and dealers from being held liable when crimes have been committed with their products

However, both manufacturers and dealers can still be held liable for damages resulting from defective products, breach of contract, criminal misconduct, and other actions for which they are directly responsible in much the same manner that any U.S. based manufacturer of consumer products is held responsible.
