    How long do you think it will be, before Tallaj's family sues Smith & Wesson?

    No! WHAT? A criminal LIED? Imagine that.



    But on a serious note, what can you really do? Do you have to run background checks on everyone who uses a range before they can use it? I'll bet that's what will be coming after this.

    They're probably having the lawyers draw up the paper as we write these responses. Gotta sue, gotta sue. If someone, especially a corporation is involved at all, let's sue them is the mindset nowdays. It is one of the reasons why we can't do a lot of things anymore, or the prices of some things are so high. It is ridiculous.

    They need to start shutting down the DMV's that issue drivers liscenses to people who use getaway cars and shut down the motor company that made the vehicle. This country I thought was borderline stupid. Now I know it is over the edge.

    I think their main exposure is that they rented guns to them. I would expect MA to start requiring background checks or shutting down the rental business all together. I don't agree with it, but it seems an easy target for the anti's.

    This comes after law enforcement officials said four convicted felons wanted for violent crimes did their own training at the range.
    If the Government had done their part and kept these felons out of circulation there wouldn't be a problem. The Government allows this to happen then blames everyone else when something goes wrong. They use it as an excuse to put further restrictions and barricades in the way of honest citizens who have committed no crimes.

    Its like letting a dangerous dog run lose in the streets and them blaming the person it attacks for not being able to tell the difference between it and the nice dog down the street.
