Yes crime is exploding in some places, sadly most of what happens in your backyard tends to wash out that happens elsewhere.

No, you make a claim, back it up, give us a link.
If you cannot or won't then I have to take the opinion it only happened in your head.

Well at least 1 state is trying to do something about the huge gun problem that the U.S. has.

California legislators introduce bill to allow lawsuits against gun manufacturers.

Three California lawmakers will introduce legislation to allow local governments and victims of gun violence to bring civil lawsuits against gun manufacturers whose products are used in the commission of crimes, opening a new front in the battle over gun safety legislation.

The legislators say they will use a loophole in a 2005 federal law that shields gun manufacturers and dealers from civil liability. That law, the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act, contains an exception when those companies and sellers break state law.

"We must make our communities safer. Almost every industry in the United States can be held liable for what their products do, but the gun industry is not held to the same standard," Assemblyman Phil Ting (D) said in a statement announcing the legislation. "Financial repercussions may finally push them to be more responsible by improving their practices and adhering to California's strict gun laws."

Ting's office said the bill would focus on existing California laws that require gun manufacturers and sellers to conduct background checks and testing of those who seek to purchase firearms; ban sales of assault weapons and parts to make such weapons; implement safeguards against straw purchases and theft; and require the sales of firearm safety devices along with newly purchased guns.

California Attorney General Rob Bonta (D) and the Brady Campaign, a gun safety organization, are backing the bill....

Just another reason most people can't be trusted with a firearm.

4-Year-Old Girl Shot by Gun-Cleaning Mom, Who Fabricates Story About Robbery.

A mother confessed on Friday to accidentally shooting her 4-year-old daughter while attempting to clean a gun after she initially told police that the child was injured during an attempted robbery.

The mother was taken into custody in Detroit after she admitted she fabricated a story about how her daughter was shot, Police Chief James White said Friday.

"We're trying to make everything line up with what the mom is telling us, we're trying to piece it all together," White said during a news conference, as reported by local station Fox 2.

Police first responded to the incident around 4 p.m. Friday after receiving a call from a hospital that a child was being treated for gunshot wounds, according to White. When officers interviewed the mother, she said the child was injured when a male suspect attempted to steal her purse and fired multiple shots toward them.

"As she was entering her home someone attempted to snatch her purse. When he was not successful snatching the purse, he fired multiple shots striking the 4-year-old child twice," White initially said of the case on Friday afternoon....
Now what sort of mother is that?

Guns are far too deadly to 'make mistakes' with...

Guns are very deadly and should always be treated as deadly weapons. They should very much not be seen as 'toys' or 'house ornaments' or an 'ego show-off'...

All very painfully sadly silly.


Stay safe folks!
