Court Rules Gun Makers can be Sued
Guns kill people
Spoons made Rosie Fat
Cars make people drive drunk.
I hope that Gary is not part of the United States. What morons to not understand that the problem is with the people who use guns and other weapons against their fellow citizens, or, perhaps, against foreigners who happen to be citizens of the USA.

THE TORTIOUS MARKETING OF HANDGUNS: STRICT LIABILITY IS DEAD, LONG LIVE NEGLIGENCE

I dont understand, why would they sue the gun company? Kinda like someone suing a cigarette company for giving them cancer, this is so f’ing bogus and bs. How long before the gun manufacturers start closing? Its Gary for heavens sake!
The gun manufacturers should counter-sue Gary for failing to keep criminals off the street.
Problem is, they DO understand that. It is part of an ongoing effort to obliterate the 2nd Amendment.
or just a judge looking to get their name in the news?
But Gary has been influenced far too much by Chicago, that ethically, politically, criminally corrupt city that gave us the Obamessiah. Their "problems" are the result of that liberal democrat victim hood mentality. Emphasis on "hood".
Their problems are also due to a mental disorder in connection with the inability to assign actual responsibility for one's actions. It is pure insanity to blame cigarette makers for people who choose to smoke and to blame manufacturers of firearms for misuse of their product by criminals. The latter is far worse because it impacts innocent Americans who simply want to be able to defend themselves. Twenty or more years of Affirmative action must somehow play into this continued insanity.
” Its Gary for heavens sake!”
I think you just answered your own question. lol
I have long contended that Gary’s only true “visionary” was the first guy who went into the plywood business there. Now THAT guy was a thinker. ;)
For those who’ve never been through Gary:
What do you call a window frame with glass in it in Gary?
Gary, Indiana has the same thing in common as with Washington D.C., Detroit, Philadelphia, etc.......
See my tagline.
The courts have already tossed these kinds of lawsuits.
