Glock works like Glock is supposed to

And they settle. Kid grabs a gun, shoots dad, paralyzing him. They sue Glock saying the gun’s lack of a grip safety was the reason. Instead of the fact they gave their kid access to a fucking Glock.

I guess the settlement was cheaper than attorney’s fees.

    Grip safety? Why would that change anything?

    I guess he is saying they didn’t grip the gun on the backstrap (and thus deactivating the phantom grip safety.)

    Sure.

  2. Fred Says:

    Part of the thing about a Glock is that it isn’t a Colt 1911, it’s a Glock. Good grief.

  3. Steve Says:

    It’s California, so the odds of getting an intelligent jury are slim. Why blame yourself when someone else has more money.

    Does California mandate a minimum trigger pull?

  4. Chris Says:

    Nevermind that the gun owner is an effing cop who’s supposed to understand this gun business.

  5. Wally Says:

    Hey Chris, only cops are qualified (at public expense) to handle guns.

  6. Kristophr Says:

    Stop selling guns to Californian cops.

    I wouldn’t give the guy a penny.

  8. Lyle Says:

    Caving in to (or even entertaining) an unreasonable demand can result in only one outcome; more unreasonable demands.

    We have, thereby, brought all this shit upon ourselves and it will of course continue.

    Arguing about different gun designs, different actions and proper safety practices is to comPLETEly miss the point.

    The point is that caving in to (or even entertaining) an unreasonable demand can result in only one outcome; more unreasonable demands.

    If you pay the Danegeld you never get rid of the Dane.

    Like Steve says, I wouldn’t want to have a CA jury on this one. If I were Glock though I would completely pull out of CA, especially the LE market. And I would counter-sue the guys employer for lack of proper training.

  11. mariner Says:

    Glock is a business and there’s plenty of profit in California, even after settling with this jackwagon.

  12. KM Says:

    Dildo gives firearm access to a 3yr old and quoting from the article:
    Glock noted that Chavez acknowledged leaving the gun near his child, who wasn’t in a car seat.
    Fucker KNOWS that a kid becomes a projectile if something goes wonky in the car and he can’t even seem to be able to take care of that basic item either.

  13. Bill Twist Says:

    Correct me if I’m wrong here, but doesn’t the PLCAA specifically prohibit this kind of suit? How much does it cost to have a lawyer show up in court an point out that the suit is against the law?

  14. Tracy Says:

    It costs lots and lots of money to defend yourself in court, especially civil court. The ramifications of losing can be far worse than anticipated. And worst, you absolutely cannot trust the typical jury to render justice. That is the unfortunate reality of the “justice” system in the modern world.

  15. Kristophr Says:

    Burt Rutan had a similar problem with lawsuits over his experimental plane designs. He sold the plans, and people who couldn’t follow directions caused lawsuits.

    He adopted a policy of never settling a case. After enough knock down and drag out court fights, the ambulance chasers stopped targeting him.

  16. Richard Says:

    State Farm is notorious for not settling either and they attract fewer nuisance lawsuits than other insurance companies.

  17. Chas Says:

    Fuck Glock.

    Get a ’69 Camaro, and fuck Glock.

  18. dustydog Says:

    Glocks do have a built in safety mechanism: leave the chamber empty with a full magazine seated.

    Stop selling guns to Californian cops.

    This!! And Californians in general.

  20. ALFRED WETON Says:

    Should have sued his friggin kid for shooting him

    “Glocks do have a built in safety mechanism: leave the chamber empty with a full magazine seated.”

    That and “don’t pull the trigger unless you want it to fire”.
