If only we applied this same logic to everything manufactured that could possibly harm us. Only then, would we be safe...

Let's see Ford and GM cough up the statistics on how many people die in their vehicles every year.
Let's see knife manufacturers report how many people get stabbed by the sharp blades of death they produce.
I would love to see this enforced the fashion industry and clothing manufacturers. Please report how many crimes your clothes have been involved in. If those criminals didn't have those clothes, they may never have been able to commit the crime in the first place...

I'm just rolling with that logic.. now there is a REAL crime.

How is the manufacturer supposed to know where it's product eventually goes?


Its a bit ridiculous, isn't it? In the case of firearms manufacturers, they're usually at least two steps removed from the end purchaser, anyway. They sell to a distributor, the distributor sells to the dealer, and the dealer sells to you.

This is nothing more than a political witch hunt, intended to harass a legal business and its shareholders, and a poorly devised one at that.

Interesting thought. We know that they are tasked with providing safety measures. How would you feel about safety measures on guns? They can be set up to only shoot for the owner, right? I'm sure there could be other measures to reduce the deaths of innocents.

the objection is some of these advanced safety features can be controlled remotely. this negates one of the primary reasons we have a 2nd amendment which is to make our government fear the consequences of overreach or even as a last resort to retain the ability of armed resistance. This is also an objection to permanent databases or registry. Sadly; this has been borne out in Hurricane Katrina and other natural disasters where the govt used such registries to confiscate law abiding citizen's guns but not looters and other criminal's guns.

Well, I was kinda riffing off the false equivalency with the car industry. You don't want any controls? You don't want any oversight or studies as to why y'all are killing each other?
Fine...but time to stop the hand-wringing about mass shootings, etc . You (collectively) can't suck and blow at the same time.

They dare to continue their legal right to sell guns, employ people, feed the economy, be successful, run an organized corporation, support American values, etc. Obama doesn't like any of that crap.
