Ryan Carter 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.
