Rochester sues gunmakers
ROCHESTER, N.Y. — Smith & Wesson, Glock, Remington and others face a complaint in Monroe County Supreme Court, alleging that they fuel gun violence in Rochester, New York, by selling more weapons than a legitimate market could handle, contributing to a secondary, illicit trade. Rochester says the gun makers purposefully advertise to potential criminals by playing up firearms’ high capacity and easy concealment.
Read the complaint as well as coverage about a similar suit from Buffalo, a city rattled seven months ago by a mass shooting that left 10 people dead. Attorneys at Napoli Shkolnik represent both cities.
