Well that's a stretch. The plaintiff seems to think he doesn't need to meet the requirements of federal law to bring his case. Unfortunately the court seems willing to entertain this folly.

I don't see this going anywhere. If they let it go through on guns, think of what else it would be used against!

The plaintiffs are trying to use a state trade and fair practice law so maybe that's it? I dunno.

I admit I haven't read the entire complaint and it was a while ago. I got a few pages in and had to stop because I was getting angry. So it was tailored to keep it in state court by using some Connecticut law that deals with commerce. And I take it there's no pleadings of violating federal statute so as to remove the ability to...remove it to federal court.

Congress needs to amend the statute to give exclusive jurisdiction on issues involving interstate commerce involving firearms to the federal court system. This end-around the PLCAA is complete BS and blatant. Pfft yeah right Congress, specifically the Senate, getting anything done is like expecting to resign because he's a corrupt politician.
