    Wish in one hand and (your choice of words here) in another and see which one fills up first.

    So now if you think the ruling is correct, do you think then one should be able to sue:
    Alcohol distillers
    Car dealers
    or any other manufacture or dealer of any item that can, or has caused injury to someone?

    You can. None of those industries have ever had a specific law protecting them gun manufacturers did (do?).

    It has certainly worked with cigarette marketing practices. Remember the 'Marlboro Man'? which defined manhood, now its specifically the military type guns. In Sandy Hook it took 266 seconds to kill 26 people.

    From the article, a statistic:

    “7,000 kids killed because of gun violence between the Sandy Hook shooting in December 2012 and March 2018.”
    Not quite 5 1/2 years! That’s a lot of kids!

    Is this accurate? Is this just in the U.S.? Does it include ‘kids’ up to 17 yrs.old? It must.
