December 2021 – New York’s Attorney General Letitia James is trying to achieve meaningful gun law reform. This inevitably means she is being attacked on social media. We will send messages of support.
Attorney General James is the subject of a lawsuit by segments of the gun industry following her decision to implement a state public nuisance statute that allows gun makers and distributors to be sued if their products are used in crimes by third parties.
NewYork State laws seeking to hold manufacturers of lethal weapons to account is behind these manufacturers suing Ms James.
In a December 16 press statement Ms James said: “Once again, the gun lobby is trying to exert total control over this country and thwart common-sense efforts to protect lives.
“Make no mistake: We will aggressively defend this law and won’t back down against their continued attempts to endanger New Yorkers.”
While many gun-violence-weary New Yorkers are sending her messages of support, there are many people sending hateful, illogical messages to her on social media.
