    [QUOTE=Scottl;3440825s, part of the motivation for removing Trump is his success confirming judicial appointees.

    [/QUOTE]

    The motivation for trumps impeachment is that he is a criminal and an incompetent

    that fact that he is usually unsuccessful in his criminal endeavors is irrelevant

    How about suing gun makers to stop gun violence? Oh, that pesky "can't sue gun manufacturers
    law." right?

    Oooops:

    Docket for 19-168

    re: suing gun manufacturers

    Unless the injuries were caused by design or manufacture defect, there is no basis for the suit.

    The courts are not likely to proceed in a suit that sues Bic Pen because someone wrote a bad check.
    Ditto a suit against Ford because someone backed over your bicycle.
    Ditto a suit against Revere Ware because someone burned dinner.

    However, the courts may do anything they wish, and very little surprises me.

    This is dredging up old memories. Circa 1950, a St. Louis detective told about a guy he didn't like, so every time he saw him, he arrested the fellow and held him 20 hours for "questioning" as they could back before the police were hamstrung by nonsense like the Miranda and other civil rights decisions. One day the detective got a tip that his victim was carrying a gun and intended to kill him. That gave him the excuse he wanted and he arrested the guy, found the gun, and sent him to prison. Another story was about someone the police wanted to hassle, so they held him for 20 hours, then when they released him, had an officer on the sidewalk to turn him around for another 20 hours, and repeated and nauseam.

    That's the problem with methodology that might produce useful results. There will always be someone to abuse it.
