12. that's absurd

complete bullshit. There are a lots of state cases the court has ruled on. The Montana election law case, most recently. And you have no information about the location of the gun company vs. the family of the child killed. You are just making stuff up.

You continually change your argument. Jesus, can you people never be honest. Just admit you don't care about the First Amendment or equal protection. You only care about guns.

Here is one case from the First Amendment Center that involved cases involving resident's in the same state.

"In its 1971 decision Boddie v. Connecticut, for example, the Court ordered the waiver of court costs for indigents seeking a divorce — not because of the right to petition, but because marriage and its dissolution have been recognized as fundamental private interests. The Court reasoned that to deny a divorce for lack of ability to pay the state’s court costs was to deny a fundamental right entirely. Though the petitioners in Boddie raised the petition clause as a basis for their challenge, the federal courts at every level viewed the complaint through the prism of due process, which is the right to fair administration of justice."

Additionally: "The most significant confirmation of a petition-based right to seek judicial redress comes not from free-speech jurisprudence but from antitrust law. In a series of cases beginning with Eastern Railroad Presidents Conference v. Noerr Motor Freight Inc. in 1961, the Supreme Court recognized that antitrust statutes should not penalize petitioners who join to seek passage and enforcement of laws."
