Lots of the usual 'thoughts and prayers' hand-wringing from public officials, predictable calls for gun control from parents, calls for mental health from the Nutjob-In-Chief.

I have a better solution.

Pass a law, declare it so, have a court rule, however we have to do it: make the NRA financially culpable. Let parents sue the NRA for loss of life. Let a couple dozen $10 million lawsuits wake up Wayne LaPierre and his cozy little hunting lodge.

You'd see action then.

Meh, reading the complaint, it alleges telemarketing calls to numbers on the Do Not Call Registry.

Maybe not the 'smoking gun' I was looking for.

Suing the NRA - as much as I would love to see it - will never happen. There are too many laws protecting so-called non-profits. You probably wouldn't get more than a dozen Democrats to vote for a bill that will piss off contributors and that they know the courts will shoot down anyway.

I'm with Chris Rock: Sell them guns, but bullets will cost $1,000 each.

Quote :
Florida shooter Nikolas Cruz used his backyard for target practice just months before he killed 17 students this week.

This video, shot in October by a neighbor, shows Cruz in his backyard shooting what appears to be a BB gun, wearing a "Make America Great Again" hat.

The neighbor says cops were called to Cruz's home a number of times for "strange and violent behavior." There's a report out that cops were called 39 times.

Kids in the neighborhood are saying Cruz was unhinged, was violent toward animals and would fly off the handle for no apparent reason.
Or maybe, don't let troubled people buy AK-15s, how about that for an idea?

What finally broke the back of the tobacco industry lobby was the 1994 agreement that they could be sued for damages.

The NRA needs to have the same awakening.  Nobody should be able to make a product that kills people without really compelling evidence that the product does more good than harm (like automobiles -- and even those have mandatory safety features).

Okay sue the gun manufacturers then.
