I don’t think you realize that with this case a gun manufacturer is being held liable for not making their guns harder to be used in a murder. Otherwise Sig and serial numbers having nothing at all to do with this case.
Cases are often decided by the precedent on which their ruling will have. Again, I'm not a lawyer, but having talked to a number of them about very similar situations in the auto and other industries, what I've been saying is my understanding.

Be a shame if Bombardier were successfully sued for the next Ski-Doo fatality...

Unless I'm mistaken (which as a non-lawyer I easily could be), this ruling just puts the gun industry in line with just about every other one. Which is to say, manufactures have a duty to ensure to the best of their ability that their products are used as intended. It doesn't imply liability or guilt, just allows for that liability to be determined.

You own a gun, right? Familiar with how it works? Good lord.

All he did was clog up the courts with a case that can't be won by the prosecution. They will hope for an out of court settlement like in every other case.
What will they do when that rational is applied to cars....bikes.....kitchen knives......

Maybe yours were?
I just took one out of the safe to check. Here are the markings on the barrel.
The one I bought within the last few years is stamped as made in MA... So either SOME are made in Canadastan, or they shifted out of that frozen shithole.
Both of our .22 LR and our .223 have the MA markings and the Indian head logo etched onto the bolts. Might end up being collector's items one day in this world of political correctness. Check the Land O Lakes butter containers. The image of the Indian squaw is gone.
