Will this stem or otherwise neuter the overly profitable and deadly flood?


Mexico's fight to sue US gun manufacturers for $10bn
wrote:
Mexico claims that half a million guns flow south from the US every year. Can a lawsuit against American gun manufacturers stem the tide?...

... Mexico's bloody drug war.

But the weapons recovered afterward were not: Barrett 50-calibre sniper rifles, pistols and military assault weapons.

All are produced and sold by US-based gun manufacturers. The attack against Mr Harfuch, along with hundreds of other incidents, now form a key part of a lawsuit brought by the Mexican government against US-based gunmakers and wholesalers, including Smith & Wesson, Beretta, Colt, Glock and Ruger.

The lawsuit, filed in a federal courthouse in Massachusetts - where several of the companies are based - argues that the "flood" of illegal guns in Mexico "is the foreseeable result of the defendants' deliberate actions and business practices"...

There are very deadly consequences...


Stay safe folks!

Train crash? No, just another wacko with a gun

An explanation is required by the rest of the world to why, enough Americans think this is acceptable, that prevents a limiting of firearm ownership.

Gun deaths were the leading killer of US children in 2020
Guns overtook car crashes to become the leading cause of death for US children and teenagers in 2020, new research shows.

Data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) shows that over 4,300 young Americans died of firearm-related injuries in 2020.

While suicides contributed to the toll, the data shows that homicides form the majority of gun-related deaths.
