    No, it is you who is ignorant. What this ruling has done is end manufacturing in this country.

    Somebody robs a bank? Sue the car maker that got them there.

    Somebody hits a pedestrian? Sue the carmaker for making the car. No car, no hit pedestrian.

    Some kid is unfortunately locked in a refrigerator. Yup, sue the maker.

    This is the idiotic consequence of decisions made by fools.

    Like you

    It's not a matter of what it was designed to do, it was who they marketed to that was the problem.

    They are being sued because they saw the Lanza family - crazy people who had no business owning guns to start with - as a prime market.

    Then I guess you can sue a gun company if they only wound.

    You do realize that refrigerators were essentially redesigned because too many kids locked themselves into them, right?

    That's why we went from THIS

    to this..

    Okay, so now that we've cleared that up for you, let's look what happened.

    The Gun Industry made a conscious decision to market their products to gun nuts like Nancy Lanza after hunting fell out of favor with most people. Which is how we went from this...

    To THIS>>>>

    In short, the decision was made to market more dangerous weapons to more unstable people. That's were you got the crazy talk about how "I needs my guns to fights the government" that seems to be the NRA's rallying cry.

    No, they are being sued because progressives can't rule the way they want so long as the people are armed.
    This is about power, and nothing more.

    Guy, the government has tanks... they laugh at your guns.

    This is about 33,000 deaths, 70,000 injuries, 270 BILLION in economic losses.

    This is about active shooter drills, security cameras, metal detectors, that we all have to live with because you have a fetish.

    Not really... That can be overcome. Once you start taking the gun industry's money, watch how fast they get responsible.

    ..I'm pro-common sense firearm laws--not anti-firearm--but I see many comments on MSM and here comparing this lawsuit to suing fork and spoons companies/eating/over eating/etc = very ridiculous--a very ridiculous comparison
