I'm not a gun nut. I don't own one, and probably never will. Somehow I'd manage to shoot myself. But I respect other peoples' 2nd Amendment rights. I also hate frivolous lawsuits. So I'm really happy that Congress has granted the gun industry broad immunity from lawsuits.
If someone kills with a gun, why should the gun manufacturer be liable? What did they do wrong? If someone kills someone with a knife should the knife manufacturer be liable. How about if someone deliberately runs down a pedestrian with a car?
