    I don't have access to nexis lexis to give specific examples NOR DO I NEED THEM to state basic facts. There is only one way to prevent suing - a special law that grants immunity. Gun industry is nearly unique in that it has such immunity.

    I can no longer find the amazing level of ignorance in this country concerning guns amusing. The media feeds into this constantly and seems to have no concern for truth whatsoever.

    You cannot support your point, a fact you are fully aware of.
    Manufacturers have never been liable when their product was stolen from its legal owner ans used to commit crime.
    Not once has this happened.

    Your statement is meaningless if you cannot produce a single example of such happening. Without that the law is nothing more than a protection from a flood of frivolous lawsuits.

    I wonder when I can get a Judge to approve my lawsuit against General Motors. My brother was killed in an accident with a Chevrolet Corvette that can go 120 miles an hour when the speed limit was 65.

    No, several other types of businesses have the same protection. When Hil-Liar said that only gun manufacturers have that kind of protection, she lied once again. Even Politifact rated her claim false.

    What this country needs is a Loser Pays All law. Sue anybody you like, but if you lose the suit, then you have to pay all the expenses of the person or business you tried to sue.

    That would stop most cases like this.
