Yet we keep seeing this insistence the state must provide absolute proof that a gun did not fire itself.
You have to thank the tobacco industry and climate change denial groups for that one, those that spend billions to install the idea of "sound science", the demand of absolute proof, in the heads of citizens.
It is a crime in the State of California to fiddle around with a gun in a way that causes danger to the public (that is not the exact legal wording, but I am trying to simplify it for people who don't want to understand that). Someone died because a person was handling a gun carelessly in proximity to other persons. That is a fact which is not changed by speculation about sensitive triggers.
True, but does California convict each and every legal gun owner for manslaughter when an accidental discharge means harm to someone?
If not, it is probably the same standard at work here.
This signature is a safe place.
