Congressman Boucher stands alone among Democrats on gun bill

This report indicates that the House Judiciary Committee forwarded the bill prohibiting lawsuits against gun manufacturers to the full House, on a party-line vote with the exception of SW Va's Rick Boucher, the lone Democrat who also voted for the lawsuit ban.

In the period 1989-1998, Congressman Boucher was one of the leading recipients in the House of campaign contributions from the National Rifle Association, as shown here.
