Wrongful death lawsuits against gun sellers

Wrongful death lawsuits against gun sellers are rare notwithstanding John Grisham's good (albeit unrealistic) book The Runaway Jury, which puts gun sellers on trial after a father dies in a workplace mass murder. In fact, I know of no such lawsuits for personal injury or wrongful death in Wisconsin. Nevertheless, some want to regulate tort law to give gun sellers immunity, The New Bill to Protect the Gun Industry From Lawsuits. The proposal did not win though as those valuing justice and human life won, like the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence and Brady Campaign (Jim Brady was shot in an assassination attempt on President Reagan).
