Wither Personal Responsibility
Remember that off-duty cop that negligently left his Glock under the seat of his car, then his 3-year old that wasn’t in a child seat found the gun and accidentally shot him?
Los Angeles Judge Kevin Brazile dismissed Chavez’s case two years ago, saying that he had failed to show that an alternate gun design would have prevented the shooting. Brazile also said that a police department review of the handgun showed that the advantages outweighed the risk.
But earlier this week, the state appeals court ruled 3-0 that the suit could move forward, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. After reviewing evidence presented by Chavez’s lawyers, the court found that a grip safety “would minimize the risk of accidental discharge without undermining performance.”
Ah… it’s in California. That explains everything.
Personal responsibility just doesn’t matter any more, does it.
No wonder everything is going to shit.
And for the record, saying a grip safety would minimize risk without undermining performance shows what they (don’t) know about guns and shooting performance.
