Most Americans are far smarter than that. Try making the same argument against airplane manufacturers when German Flight 9525 crashed, killing 144 passengers and six flight crew due to a deranged pilot. Try making the same argument against airplane manufacturers when Metro Jet 9268 had a bomb aboard killing 224 aboard. The problem isn’t the tool (airplanes or guns); rather, the problem is the terrorist. I guess you didn’t get the memo.

It speaks to the intelligence of reporters today.
