In 2017 there was a deadly mass shooting in Las Vegas, the immediate response was a ban on bump stocks and later many would look to the gun makers for retribution. Victims of the attack and family members of victims sought to sue gun makers for the incident, the Nevada Supreme Court has just issued their ruling on the case.

From 8 News Now 

The Nevada Supreme Court on Thursday rejected arguments in the case of a Route 91 Harvest festival victim, ruling that gun manufacturers and distributors are not responsible for the actions of the shooter.

The estate of Carrie Parsons sued, alleging that the manufacturers of the AR-15 assault rifle knew the weapon could be easily modified — effectively converted into an automatic weapon with the use of a bump stock. That claim, as well as protections in Nevada law for gun manufacturers, were the main issues in the lawsuit.

The AR-15 was one of many weapons used in the attack that left Parsons and 57 others dead at the country music festival on the Las Vegas Strip the night of Oct. 1, 2017. The deaths of two additional victims have been attributed to the shooting, bringing the death toll to 60.

Many gun grabbers in the United States have sought to punish gun manufacturers for the misuse of their products. This has caused quite a stir in the country and it has caused some gun makers to flee their homes. The American Northeast was the long time home for American gun makers but now so called “fly-over” states get to call this industry their own.

Without this ruling, legitimate drug manufacturers, auto makers and dealers and many others would fall victim to this kind of nonsense.

One only needs to ask one question. Where will it end? There are simply too many things manufactured that are harmful if not used for their intended purpose.

Blaming the gun makers for the actions of criminals is no different than blaming the auto makers for the actions of reckless or drunk drivers.

By this logic car manufacturers can be sued for drivers driving recklessly. Or knife manufacturers for psycho stabbers. The list goes on.

Oh how I wish that were true. ATFE is allowed to create rules that are accepted as law with little or no explanation for their decisions. Congress is the only governmental body allowed to enact law under the Constitution. They allow ATFE, NEC, FDA and countless other organizations to create rules that are accepted as LAW. Lazy elected officials either do not understand their job or just do not care.

Should the victims of the Waukesha tragedy sue the SUV maker for the attack on them?

What percentage of the population is black? If ONLY blacks shop at Black owned stores/businesses, how well will their businesses do ? Remember, “only Black Lives Matters” was always about blacks, so if they get their wish, wouldn’t their failure be self inflicted? It is looking like “OBLM” is a destructive organization for blacks.
