    A Special Tax on the Firearm Industry Is the Only Way to Make Victims of Gun Violence Whole

    Well if this were to come about we should be allowed to sue car makers for accidents when we misuse their vehicles? A special tax on auto makers?

    Looking into that website " JURISPRUDENCE THE LAW, LAWYERS, AND THE COURT. " It's crazy how many people there are now that "BLOG", or whatever the hell you want to call it, and all it is is someones opinion. And people line up behind them, and link them, so they can have some one to follow around saying "HELL YEAH!!" Don't people have lives anymore?

    WHY should people have a life when they can pretend they're someone who really does? Of course, many of "those" don't have one either. Sheeple is alive and living in DC!!!:rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:

    Well, can't argue with that. First 2 words of the article was all I needed to see. When you live in imagination land I'm sure it makes perfect sense.
    The comparison to being able to recover from auto manufacturers is a fallacy. If your Hyundai spontaneously explodes you should be able to sue the manufacturer for the defect that caused your injuries. If someone runs you over with a Hyundai how is that the manufacturer's fault? It's not. You sue the driver.
    To parallel, if G-money loses a finger when his gat explodes in his hand, he can certainly bring action against HiPoint. However, if G-money shoots Upgrayedd in his pimp hand, how is that HiPoint's fault? It's not.
    Now, if so called gun violence statistics include accidents and suicides, does that mean the firearms industry should pay some dumba$$ who manages to blow his own wankus off because he didn't check to see that his weapon was clear when he was cleaning it?
    So tired of this "common sense" logic. Why is it impossible to hold people accountable for bad acting instead of blaming an object?

    If the Courts would treat DWI drivers like drug dealers and take their car and whatever else they had when they were stopped then some drivers "Might" get the idea that drinking and driving wasn't such a good idea. The Problem with that is a whole lot of Judges would have to Walk to work!!!:p:rolleyes::p

    Well, if they want a special tax on the medium employed in the exercise of Second Amendment Rights, then we should treat all Constitutional Rights equally... Tax the medium employed to exercise any Constitutional Right, including and especially the First Amendment Rights...

    Or, perhaps they’re just looking to spark a revolt....

    The author is completely f.o.s.; The firearms industry can be sued for defective products. It's not negligence when your product is used in an illegal act.

    If someone beats me senseless with a candy cane was it the candy makers fault? If I get too fat is it the candy makers or the candy stores fault?

    I say anytime a mass shooting takes place victims should ask Diane Feinstein and friends why they left Americans so vulnerable for all these decades being lead to believe a piece of paper would keep them safe. Last time I checked a piece of paper isn't bullet proof.

    Imagine if so called crazy people belived there might be staff at schools, patrons at theaters, ect with guns. If they just believed it, how many less shootings there would be.

    I don’t read Slate, because the ONE time I checked it out when they first became a “thing” I could feel my brain cells starting to die from the vapidness.

    This ^^^

    We need to turn it back on them and ask why we are not allowed to protect ourselves wherever we go, whatever we do...

    Hold the liberals and those democrats that endorse additional gun control, responsible... Take the offensive against them, demanding “common sense” action, slowing Americans the unprohibited ability to protect themselves as well as their loved ones...

    Why Nancy? Why Diane? Why Chuck? Why Ron? Why Floyd? Each and every one of them are accountable for each and every mass shooting in America. They need to be put on the defensive, time to take charge and turn the tide against them...

    I still like my idea of taxing legislation, each sponsor being assessed a dollar per word in the bill at introduction and each Aye vote a dollar for each word in the final "Passed Chamber" version... and the Governor a dollar per word in each bill signed into law. Regulatory agency heads, a dollar per word in each new regulation their agencies issue.

    I'm sure that will happen right after they pass a term limits bill.

    Well, this has essentially been proposed: Opinion: We Should Ban Cars From Big Cities. Seriously.

    Must ban all the things. maxresdefault.jpg
