Gun control advocates are pissed that federal law protects firearms manufacturers against civil or criminal prosecution if their products are used in a crime. They are also none too happy with the fact that the ATF can’t prosecute gun stores who’ve sold a high percentage firearms—legally—that end-up at crime scenes. In their world, both gun makers and gun stores would be sued out of existence. So how would they deal with this? “The [Kuwaiti] Interior Ministry said thieves broke into a warehouse [in Subiya] and stole a huge amount of firearms and ammunition,” worldtribune.com reports. Our liberated Middle Eastern allies admitted that the arsenal was unguarded. (What’s Kuwaiti for “d’oh!”?). The crooks lifted some 20,000 U.S.-origin M-16 assault rifles and 15,000 rounds for 9mm pistols. Oh wait, make that 20k rifle rounds. Anyway, irresponsible ownership? Absolutely! Criminal? Only on one side of the equation I’m afraid. But I would not want to be one of the thieves who gets caught for this one . . .
