Court Gives Bryco/Jennings the (Index) Finger

Once again, someone has managed to blame a few pounds of metal for the demonstrated ineptitude of a few pounds of gray matter. Last week, jurors in a California civil court ruled that gun manufacturer Bryco/Jennings must pay over $50 million to a 16-year-old who became a quadriplegic after his moronic babysitter shot him in the jaw nine years ago. Virtually no one--even the normally "pro-gun" right--seems to be complaining about the verdict. While the right remains silent, the left is hailing the decision as an example of a "legitimate" case of compensation for a "dangerous design flaw" in the gun.
