4. And that would work how?

The victims in Colorado had to pay for attorneys fees after their attempt to sue. Even without the law you would still have to face the fact lawsuits are expensive and judgment for fees when you lose are even worse. Would you advise anyone to sue Ford in a dui case because that would be the same outcome. A tort claim against a manufacturer due to someone’s intentional act is a looser all day long. What would happen is all the manufacturers would put together a very high priced and effective defense team and bankrupt people who think they will win because others want them to win so badly. After loosing the Aurora case the people that encouraged them to sue walked away and left them with the bill.
