Mexican government lawsuit against US gunmakers thrown out

In case you missed it, the Mexican government had the audacity to file a $10 billion lawsuit against a long list of top U.S. gun manufacturers, in an attempt to place blame on the companies for the high rates of gun violence that occurs as a result of bad guys using the firearms they create.

Thankfully, it didn't take a Boston-based federal judge long to throw the asinine case out, according to the Daily Caller

"While the court has considerable sympathy for the people of Mexico, and none whatsoever for those who traffic guns to Mexican criminal organizations, it is duty-bound to follow the law," Judge F. Dennis Saylor said in his ruling, citing the law created to prevent gun manufacturers from being held responsible for the bad guys who use them in acts of violence.

The Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA), passed in 2005, was the law referenced by the judge.

Interestingly, the Mexican Foreign Affairs Ministry, which apparently doesn't have much else to do, will reportedly seek an appeal against the ruling. That means it will spend considerable time and money only to be shot down -- no pun intended -- once again.

It's unclear when the Mexican government will file an appeal.

Perhaps concentrating on the root causes of gun violence would be a better use of time and resources for the Mexican government.
