    Why shouldn't gun makers be held liable like other manufacturers?

    Why is there no longer expectation of individual responsibility? Individual accountability?

    Blame the gun. Blame the car. Blame the ping pong ball. Blame the Jart. Blame the booze. Blame the bar that served the booze. Blame the friend that let the friend drive the car after drinking the booze.

    Blame the enablers and the enabling devices. The individual perpetrator is just an innocent bystander.

    these mindless libs . can't just place blame on the shooter . that would leave them without a jihad. to fight . and they must always be searching for the next jihad.

    Other manufacturers get held liable when thier products malfunction, which gun owners would be held as well. If someone made a gun that had a propensity of blowing up in your hand after 20 shots, the manufacturer can be sued.

    What you want is to hold a manufactuer liable for when their product functions as desgined, which is quite silly.

    Guns most often function as designed.

    Us humans... not so frequently.

    Because it's easier for Lakhota to blame his problems on the collective than take responsibility in his own life.
