CIVIC CENTER -- Burbank City Atty. Dennis Barlow said that a recent

California Supreme Court ruling, paving the way for gun manufacturers not

to be held liable on the basis that the risk of injury of a gun outweighs

its benefits, will not affect Burbank.

Barlow said the decision won't be an issue here, because the city

rarely files claims against gun manufacturers.

On Monday, the California Supreme Court found that the gun

manufacturer couldn't be held liable in a July 1993 shooting in San

Francisco, in which gunman Gian Luigi used a TEC-DC9, a semiautomatic

assault weapon.
