I motion to stipulate that how ridiculous a lawsuit sounds is irrelevant as a matter of law.
So what does the law actually say about firearm usage and lawsuits?
Don't speculate when I'm sure it exists.
Also, bonus points for being too gutless to have a firm opinion yet remaining firm on the tangential opinion that led us there.
I'm not sure if I want it to occur. But I think if it did occur...
So ends justify the means?
Again with the gelatin for a spine. Giggly and flexible when it suits you but firm enough to have some semblance of form. Just admit you a have a preconceived conclusion and you'll accept anything to get there.
You cannot deny that shield from liability fundamentally changes a business climate.
Of course not.
However, you cannot deny that frivolous litigation as a means to bleed a company or industry dry isn't a real possibility.
Was the circular saw being used in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions?
If so, then yes, the victims can probably sue Black and Decker.
Can you link me an owner's manual where the manufacturer instructs the gun owner to shoot another human being?
Because all the manuals I have cover firearm safety, the technical workings of the firearm and how to care for the firearm. Along with some warranty and shipping info in case there's a defect in manufacturing.
But, oddly, nothing about killing someone...
