    Let a judge and jury sort it out. I hate seeing blanket immunity handed to any industry.

    This is not difficult.
    Auto companies do not have blanket immunity. Gun manufacturers have a special deal few other industries have. At least that's how I see it.

    No different than Hammer Manufacturers tho. Still how would gun manufacturers be responsible for someone else going crazy with a gun?

    Auto makers are not responsible for misuse of their products.

    Gun manufacturers are still responsible for negligence of manufacture and for design flaws which cause injury, just like any other manufacturer.

    But there is no group representing the hammer industry called the "national hammer association" but there is one for gun manufacturers called the NRA: the "national rifle association"

    Nope, doesn't work that way. The POTUS proposes the nominee, if Congress rejects the nominee or just won't hear it, the process sits and spins until the POTUS proposes an alternate nominee.

    I do agree Congress should at least give the nominee a hearing, but they are under no process obligation to do so and such a rule change would be solely up to them.

    Are you quite finished? No one cares about how much a socialist is in love with Obama.

She is a scumbag and was rightfully flushed down the toilet. I also believe the disingenuous dems blocked the seating of a far more qualified Bush nominee for that seat so

    Paybacks are a HALLIGAN

    good riddance.

    And your point is?

    Well technically that's Not True. The Hells Angels actually Endorse Ballpeen Hammers. They just don't go to Washington DC to lobby for anything.
