Such a broad approach highlights the role of this litigation within two larger controversies: one over government efforts to reduce gun violence, and the other over the use of mass torts to regulate unpopular industries.Readers will find Suing the Gun Industry a timely and accessible picture of these complex and controversial issues.Contributors:Tom BakerDonald BramanBrannon P.
