At PJM: "Performance-Based" Gun Regulation

Should brewers be responsible for lowering the number of drunk driving fatalities? Should pharmaceutical companies be held responsible for reducing the number of deaths due to the abuse of prescription drugs? Should paint companies be responsible for reducing graffiti?

Of course not.

And the suggestion is even more unhinged when applied to products we have a Constitutional right to own.

Should manufacturers be held liable for illegal use of their products? Lawyers will say: Yes. HELL yes!

It's yet another back-door attempt at reducing or eliminating our Second Amendment Rights and, as far as I know, such attempts have been spectacularly unsuccessful.

I dunno, I almost WANT them to concentrate on stupid liberal tactics that have failed repeatedly. The harder they push, the more we are energized to push back.
