H.R. 1036. Gun Liability/Vote to Recommit to Committee a Bill to Restrict the Legal Rights of Victims of Gun Violence.
house Roll Call 123     Apr 09, 2003
Progressive Position:
Yea
Progressive Result:
Loss

Prior to the vote on final passage of gun liability legislation, Democrats offered a motion to recommit the bill to committee for further consideration with instruction to remove language in the bill that would make it immediately applicable to pending lawsuits against the gun industry. In general, a successful motion to recommit-which is always offered by the minority party-is usually a death blow to a piece of legislation. Progressives supported the recommit motion to forestall passage of a bill designed to legally empower the gun industry at the expense of victims of gun violence. The motion was defeated by a 140-282 margin.
