    Obama is a piece of dogshit that wants people to be able to sue gun manufactures if their gun brand happens to be used to murder someone.

    Typical Chicago dirty politician, typical dirty lawyer.

    good point...probably a question of too much "morality" in the law, instead of the law being the law. i'm guessing the thinking is the product is unreasonable dangerous, solely based on the product's purpose, such as dynomite. however, that is not how the law reads, guns are not like dynomite and do have safe and practical purposes that can be utilized in public areas -- policemen, etc...

    i put morality in quotes because i think the argument is more emotional than it is logical, hence suspect.
