    There is an entire design family that requires you to pull the trigger in order to do any disassembly.

    This design family does not just harm kids, it assists in police getting shot and dying from other police in station locker rooms.

    It's like the pinto - 99.99% of the time it's not an issue, except for that .001% event where a cop bleeds out in front of his locker or a 1 year old girl gets hit in the chest.

    It's not mentioned in the story or the diary, but I bet the guns were striker design. Glock / SW M&P / XD / XDM types.

    Now, I'm not sure if you truly want to be helpful or just like throwing rotten tomatoes at people who think differently than you, but if you want to be helpful you could kindly acknowledge that there are times when the people you snarkily call "responsible gun owners" are the cops.

    Unless you want to throw rotten fruit at them too.

      different types. BTW you are off in your math by a factor of 33. 100k people getting shot every year divided by 300 million people is 0.033%, not 0.001%.  Also the total number of deaths attributed to the Ford Pinto was a whopping 27 - that is less than the number that die every single day because of homicides (not even counting suicides), and divided into the population of 220 million that we had in 1977 that gives you a one time death rate of 0.00001%.

      Finally, if you are going to compare firearms to cars, I agree - we should regulate them the way we do cars in order to reduce the fatalities and injuries.

      Then they came for me - and by that time there was nobody left to speak up.
