Nevada’s Supreme Court ruled this week that gun manufacturers cannot be held responsible for the 2017 Mandalay Bay mass shooting committed by Stephen Paddock. The parents of a woman who was among the 60 deceased victims alleged that Colt Manufacturing Co. “knowingly manufactured and sold weapons designed to shoot automatically because they were aware their AR-15s could be easily modified with bump stocks to do so, thereby violating federal and state machinegun prohibitions.”

A Nevada state statute shields the manufacturer from liability unless the weapon’s malfunction had somehow resulted in injury.
