We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Naturally the WaPo calls this a handout to the gun business but I wonder whether it might be a model for tort reform in general. If you kill someone with a Stanley hammer, can your victim's family sue Stanley, and Home Depot, where you bought the hammer? There are plentiful laws regulating the sale of firearms already, and none concerning the very lethal hammer. What is insane in this country is tort litigation, which has become a gold mine, and not "evil" products. This isn't about justice, it's about $.
