    Again.
    [sarcasm]Hell her estate should be sued for bringing him into the world in the first place. But not for that, this would never had happened.[/sarcasm]


    Having guns in your house, whether out in the open or locked away is not negligence.
    Your opinion is part of the problem.

    That's the way the system works. Can it be abused? Certainly.

    I never said having guns in your house was negligent. Having guns in your house, unsecured, when you live with a violence prone person with mental illness may well be negligent.

    As a side note I can't believe anyone would really treat a firearm with the same casualness they'd treat a hammer. Anyone who actually does shouldn't have a weapon.

    If that's the case no it isn't. But if I remember he killed her with her own gun and it was readily available.

    I guess. I can't think of anything else. It's not like she's going to learn a lesson here.
    Money won't bring back your dead child. The hope that someone else's child won't end up dead may, however, be a motivation.

    But she's dead and we already know we live in a litigious society, so I'm still failing to see any lesson conveyed here that isn't already known.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    If one is not committing a crime, how they treat their firearm in the confines of their home is really none of your business.

    You're right as far as it goes - that becomes debatable if some fool is completely careless with his firearm and it get's stolen and some innocent gets killed.

    That aside anyone who treats a firearm like a hammer is an idiot.

    Oh, so murder is OK to sue on. Even if the person you wish to sue has been murdered. Along with your child.

    if they win, hopefully the money will go to the gun maker and gun dealers who were sued in violation of the law and Rule 11

    I don't know that there is any lesson to be learned. But choosing not to judge those in whose shoes you haven't walked may teach compassion.

    In a sane society such scumbags would be prevented from practicing law.The murderer's mother did not murder those people. If someone steals your car and runs over a bunch of people and destroys the side of a build those people do not get to sue you.It doesn't matter if you had the car lacked in the garage, or on the street next to the curb.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius
