BIRMINGHAM, Ala., Feb. 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — A federal judge in Miami has set a July 18 deadline to raise awareness and notify hundreds of thousands of gun owners who may be affected by a deadly safety defect that is the subject of a $240 million class action settlement involving Brazil-based gun manufacturer Taurus International. There are nearly 1 million affected pistols in American homes today that could have a deadly defect in their safety mechanisms that renders the guns susceptive to “drop fire” incidents (see video of “drop fire” defect here). These guns are the subject of a class-action settlement before the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida.
