Gun violence is a serious problem in the United States. For many years, in order to decrease gun violence, the sale and possession of firearms has been regulated by statute.' This Article argues that tort claims against gun manufacturers can complement legislative efforts to regulate the firearms industry and can thereby make a modest contribution to decreasing gun violence. The Article does not, however, endorse attempts to impose restrictions on the firearms industry by using tort litigation as a substitute for legislation.
