Put gun makers out of business.

Incidentally, who the fuck voted to approve that shit?

The time for polite debate on gun control is over --

"There also needs to be a massive cultural campaign to re-educate the gun-toting, testosterone-fueled population who believe that carrying a gun is "manly." . . . . .

"We've taken the "macho" out of smoking, drinking and abusing one's spouse, all of which were, not too long ago, viewed within the purview of the male head of household. . . . . .

"Gun-makers, as tobacco companies have been, should be held accountable, and legally liable, for the mass casualties that their products are responsible for, with severe penalties, class action lawsuits and other disincentives awaiting them at every turn. . . . . .

"The NRA, touting Second Amendment rights, not only through TV ads but also through enormous contributions to congressional and presidential campaigns alike, has prevented even the most sensible reforms from passing as laws, as the New York Times has outlined." . . . . .

I usually consider Ron Insana a right wing shill, but this is good.

Of course, the gunners are going to say that one can sue manufacturers, dealers and other gun profiteers for defective products. But they ought to be held liable for creating an atmosphere where guns are seen as making accumulators "manly, tough, safe, normal, etc."
