It's about time! Somebody needed to step in and protect manufacturers from liability for people intentionally misusing their product. These lawsuits were just attempts at usurping the democratic process by sidestepping legislatures and trying to enact an agenda through the courts.
I'm just tired of all the rhetoric as the media paints this as some type of evil NRA-driven takeover of democracy. It could just as easily have been any other industry. We already saw it work in the tobacco industry, and forces were also lining up to sue fast food companies for making people fat.
You don't sue the Zippo company because an arsonist burns down your house with one of their lighters, and you don't sue Ford because a drunk killed your sister with one of their cars. The makers of Sudafed aren't responsible for meth labs, either. Although I agree that manufacturers should be held liable for defective products, I think we're setting a dangerous precedent if we blame businesses for crimes committed through illegal use of their product.
Let me start off by saying I am not a farmer.
I am a deer hunter and I do own a tractor and have all of the equipment - but that does not make you a farmer any more than standing in the garage makes you a car - well, you get the picture!
Having said that - and with most of my ineptitude fairly well hidden - I do think that buckwheat is one of the most under rated cover crops out there.
I say cover crop because I see mixed results as it relates to the deer eating the plants.
