During this session, attendees will gain a greater understanding of their liability for injuries resulting from a firearm or ammunition they’ve sold. Included will be an overview of the current statutes protecting dealers, as well as proposed local, state and federal legislation that can either help or adversely affect dealers. There also will be discussions of current case law involving dealers where dealer liability has been attempted, as well as ways every Federal Firearms License (FFL) holder can minimize the exposure and potential exposure for this type of litigation.
