Guns don't kill people

The NAACP says guns harm poor urban blacks the most (Deseret News, March 10). No, criminal gangs harm poor urban blacks. It's not the gun manufacturers that kill people.

Just because someone misuses a product does not mean you can sue the manufacturer. The person responsible for the misuse of the product should be punished. Guns are objects that can do nothing by themselves.

It's asinine to think that people are willing to put blame on an object that has no feelings, no life, no values. It doesn't matter where the criminals get hold of guns. What matters is that the criminals are punished, not the manufacturers.
