NYT: Senator Bernie Sanders announced on Saturday that he is supporting legislation to amend a 2005 law on gunmakers’ liability that he voted for and that Hillary Clinton has been using to attack him as weak on gun regulations.

Senator Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut and Representative Adam B. Schiff of California, both Democrats, have proposed to rescind portions of the 2005 law granting broad immunity from lawsuits to gun manufacturers and dealers.

Mr. Sanders has defended his support of the law by saying he was trying to shield small gun dealers who followed the law from expensive litigation.
