Gun manufacturers have urged a US court to dismiss a Mexican lawsuit that holds them responsible for the violence inflicted by drug cartels.

Mexico is seeking billions in damages, accusing manufacturers of facilitating the illegal trafficking of weapons.

The firms, including Smith & Wesson, argue their sales are constitutionally protected in the US, calling Mexico’s lawsuit a “clash of national values”.
