2013 Nevada Revised Statutes
Chapter 41 - Actions and Proceedings in Particular Cases Concerning Persons
NRS 41.131 - Limitation on basis of liability of manufacturers and distributors of firearms and ammunition.

NV Rev Stat § 41.131 (2013) What's This?

1. No person has a cause of action against the manufacturer or distributor of any firearm or ammunition merely because the firearm or ammunition was capable of causing serious injury, damage or death, was discharged and proximately caused serious injury, damage or death. This subsection is declaratory and not in derogation of the common law.

2. This section does not affect a cause of action based upon a defect in design or production. The capability of a firearm or ammunition to cause serious injury, damage or death when discharged does not make the product defective in design.
