Got this in e-mail yesterday:
Apparently Remington took offense to a hit piece that NBC did on a court case where a plaintiff alleges that a Remington 870 was defective and fired without pulling the trigger. They include of the "expert" for the plaintiff attempting to duplicate the misfire - and failing. It's the same BS about "there are more regulations on the manufacture of teddy bears than firearms" - never mind that there are numerous government agencies devoted to the regulations on firearms.
NBC apparently feels that it's the job of the media to keep an eye on the gun industry. Judging from the hit piece they did on this issue, it appears that the folks behind the GMC truck gas tank riggings and/or "fake but accurate" have found a new home. But then again, what would you expect from the media? They want the government to use "consumer protection" as a method for regulating firearms - which is precisely the reason that I cannot buy a new Glock from a MA FFL.
Maybe if that 870 had a shoulder thing that goes up this never would have happened?
That is all.
