Gun Shop Owners Pay

We are on the slippery slope to the loss of effective access to avail ourselves of our Second Amendment rights.

The guns used in this case were STOLEN from the gun shop in question, they were NOT illegally sold. And just how is it that a manufacturer is held liable when a distributer of their product is the victom of theft?

The manufacturer followed all the guidelines mandated by law, they should not be held responsible for the CRIMINAL use of their product. The gun shop owner was a victom of theft, so just what precept of law holds that he is responsible for actions of the criminals that used the stolen items illegaly?

The parties in question no doubt settled the case in this manner so as to not have to bankrupt themselves in their own defense, but in so doing opened up a whole new chain of events leading, in the end, to the cessation of the availability of legal firearms, as the costs of doing business will become too high to sustain it at a level afforable to the average citizen.

In my jaundiced view, this is yet another end run by the anti-gun lobby to deprive the average citizen of his right to bear arms by escalating the price of guns to that not sustainable by the average citizen. If guns are legal, but unaffordable, the net effect is the same as if they had been banned outright.

The people of this great country had better make themselves aware of what is happening, or they may soon wake up to find themselves subjects, rather than citizens.

Why stop there. If Bushmaster is at fault and the gun shop owner is at fault, surely the auto manufacturer who made the car must be liable for making a trunk large enough to conceal a murderer (Notice I don't use the term sniper that is reserved for an elite group of militay members). While we are at it we need to sue the construction companies that built the roadways and parking lots for these murders to use that allowed them access to commit the crimes. We also need to sue any of the business establishments that failed to build their businesses in a fashion that would prevent this type of murder...

Do you see where this is going. I promise you this, if I am ever involved in a car accident I will sue the manufacturer of both my car and the other car(s) involved for not building cars that are safe enough to avoid accidents all together.

See how rediculous that sounds.

Bear in mind that Christine Gregoire, the State of Washington's Attorney General sanctioned this lawsuit, this is the Democrat that is trying to steal the Governorship of the State of Washington, This is more of the Communist agenda to strip you and I from the ability to protect ourselves and to destroy the U.S. Constitution and ultimately the nation as we know it.
