    makes no difference.
    yep plenty of people go hunting every year, and use a gun for what it was intended for. plenty of people target shoot using a gun designed what it is used for.

    again gun makers aren't responsible just like car makers are not responsible for when people go out of their way to be stupid.

    it is simply semantics with what you are arguing.

    possibly people depending on the situation. IE someone breaking into your home or threatening you on the street.
    other targets could be anything.

    still doesn't mean that the gun maker is responsible for what someone else chooses to do with it.
    just as a car maker isn't responsible when someone decides to mow people down in traffic.

    I'd make a comment one way or the other, but I'm afraid the Sandy Hook parents might sue me. They've sued everybody else, I think.

    He was a legal adult in the state of CT at the age of 20, not a kid and she was not his legal guardian as he was an adult and no guardianship was made.

    No kidding.
    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.

    Actually IT IS the DIFFERENCE. And it is NOT semantics. It is the purpose and function of the item.

    Why is it necessary for some to write into law special protections that go well over and above the same treatment in law given to other products used by consumers who use them for the purpose they were made for?

    Indeed. How many people use a car to intentionally kill someone ? This is just another lame argument promoted for the protection of guns
