Shooting straight on guns
By Ed Quillen
Denver Post Columnist

If he has not done so already, President George W. Bush will soon sign a bill which passed the Senate in July and the House last week. It shields gun makers and sellers from lawsuits that might arise from misuse of their weapons, and it could produce an honest discussion of guns in America.

The new federal law does not protect gun makers from ordinary product-liability litigation. That is, if the industry still produced revolvers like one my father once owned but never used - one he described as "kill behind and maim in front" because the cylinder would not align properly with the barrel so that lead sprayed every which way when it was fired - then the maker could still be sued for making a defective product.

Junk Lawsuits: Congress passed legislation to protect law-abiding gun makers from unscrupulous trial lawyers. But will gun rights supporters shield themselves from the demagoguery that's going to be fired at them?

The video below is about a

The video below is about a young women who shot and killed a man trying to break into her home.

What I find interesting is the mother's calmness in the face of danger, her attitude about killing the intruder and, the lack of 5th Estate coverage on this news item.

Good Shoot
