The firearm industry is under scrutiny following a series of legal battles across the United States.

The city of Chicago has sued Glock, alleging the company’s firearms can be easily modified into machine guns, with over 1,100 modified guns recovered in two years. The city seeks to halt these sales and demands compensation for gun violence damages.

Meanwhile, the Firearms Policy Coalition is seeking a summary judgment against Delaware’s ban on unserialized, self-manufactured firearms and related materials, including 3D printing files for guns, arguing the prohibition is unconstitutional.

Additionally, Maryland is reviewing bills to impose broad firearm industry regulations and empower its Attorney General to sue firearm industry members for alleged violations.
