Courts make correct decision

I saw this on Alphecca

The Illinois Supreme Court threw out two lawsuits accusing gunmakers of knowingly letting weapons fall into the hands of gang members and other criminals, ruling Thursday that the manufacturers cannot legally be blamed for street violence.

I am stunned, amazed and thankful that they finally came to the only reasonable decision. What the gun grabbers were proposing was the same as suing Ford or GM for selling cars that drunk drivers drive and kill people with. No one in there right mind is going to by that crap, and fortunately the Supreme Court in Illinois didn’t ether. What is wrong here is that the case should have never had gotten this far to start with. The lower court should have dismissed the case with prejudice or just refused to hear it at all. It just seems that the judges we have now just don’t have the will power to tell someone that they are being silly and to go away. Gun manufactures do not sell guns to criminals, if they did they would be shutdown by the Federal Government, and rightfully so! No they sell their weapons to distributors and gun shops. These too are tightly regulated outlets. If they were to sell to criminals they would also be shutdown. What I also don’t get here is, the Court made the correct decision, shouldn’t that be national news? Oh yeah, it went against the Liberals never mind.

Governor’s race

The race to direct Washington in the future is very tight. Right now Dino Rossi is ahead by only 261 votes. Now by anyone’s standards this is extremely close. So its time for a recount. Now it is true that no election in Washington state has ever been turned over on a recount, but no election has ever been this close. Also with the recent history of Lawyers getting involved in politics, the outcome is anyone’s guess. Even if the race is over turned and we get another liberal lawyer in office, one thing is clear. The people of Washington are slowly waking up and they want change, something different. My advice to Dino, if you get in you better produce. If you don’t you are not just going to hurt you but the Republican Party in Washington.
