  1. Jose says

    From the Bucky Ball article:
    Says Mr. Zucker: “The commission’s saying that because as CEO I did my duty—didn’t violate any law, was completely lawful—I am now the manufacturer individually responsible.”
     
    Oh – the CEO is responsible?  Like John Corzine?
     
    As for gun control, remember how Obama, when the senate killed gun control, announced he was directing the CDC to study the issue and make recommendations?  And the CDC findings were?   Unfortunately the findings (completed in June) didn’t support the administrations narrative.
     
    Thanks to our relentless investigative media, the truth was ferreted out and revealed to the American public.  Oh wait.  Guess not….
    From the linked article:
    There was one startling conclusion which, taken at face value, seemed to give the president what he was looking for. The study reported that “the U.S. rate of firearm-related homicide is higher than that of any other industrialized country: 19.5 times higher than the rates in other high-income countries.” However, Zara Matheson of the Martin Prosperity Institute, produced a map that compared gun violence rates in the major metropolitan areas of the country to rates of foreign countries. As Graham Noble of Guardian Express noted, “If one were to exclude figures for Illinois, California, New Jersey and Washington, DC, the homicide rate in the United States would be in line with any other country.” These areas, of course, are noted for the most restrictive gun laws in the country, thus negating any opportunity for the president to celebrate the report’s findings.
