    It was invented and produced to create fire work shows in China.

    Exactly. Taking that to extremes a nuclear weapon is an inanimate object too.

    I wish there were more here as interested in protecting people as they are with safeguarding selfish firearm fetishism

    Are you saying firearms are designed and built with MURDER as an intended purpose?



    P.S. It would be very dishonest at this point to try to answer this by substituting "killing" for "murder".

    Firearms simply make killing far too easy be that by accident or intent and its usually the latter.

    That would be nice but then who would fund the Democrat Party?

    Same for everyone indeed!!!!

    34 states also have singled out guns for special protections that other products and businesses do not get

    Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence

    simply click the second orange box - our state law summary - and stand back and be amazed by the special treatment guns get from state legislatures

    Its one thing to attempt to justify such special treatment - its quite another to pretend to deny it even exists.
    please go sue a car manufacture for someone mowing down a bunch of people.
    or a hammer manufacture for people getting hit with hammers
    or a knife manufacture etc ...

    guess what you can't sue them either.
