We live in a society where people are free to bring litigation against individuals and corporations on a whim, for almost any conceivable reason. The idea that someone should be able to sue a firearms manufacturer for “gun violence” is absurd, and I will explain why. First, there is no such thing as gun violence. I already hear the sounds of the triggered liberals, but here is the thing: guns don’t cause violence, people do. Do we call it knife violence when someone gets stabbed? No, we call it assault, murder, etc. Second, to everybody who cries “McDonalds hot coffee” as a legal precedent to sue gun companies, I issue this challenge: do a quick Google search of the case. I bet you find you know far less than you think you did. Go on, I’ll wait... There was legal grounds for a lawsuit against McDonalds due to negligence. They provided the beverage in a manner that contributed to third degree burns on the 79 year old plaintiff. Now to my third point. When was the last time that an auto manufacturer was found liable for making a car that functioned as designed? Anybody? When was the last time that an alcoholic beverage manufacturer was found guilty for causing inebriation? How about companies being sued for someone driving drunk and killing another person? Here is a clue: those lawsuits don’t have any merit as the product functioned as intended. If the end user decided to do something stupid, dangerous, or illegal with it, that responsibility falls on that individual, not the manufacturer. A company should not be held liable for how their product is mis-used by someone. There are a plethora of reasons we shouldn’t sue companies for making a product that isn’t defective, but I’ll let you figure that one out on your own.
