SIG Under Siege For Mexican Cartel Murders

Taking a page from American anti-gunners, a lawsuit in Germany is targeting SIG Sauer for a series of murders committed by a Mexican drug cartel member in Mexico. 

Interestingly, German anti-gunners can’t find information on where the gun was assembled, where it was first sold, how it got to Mexico or why the drug cartel member chose that particular gun to ply his nasty trade. They do admit, however, that the killer likely got the gun illegally.

Still, to German gun control advocate Jürgen Grässlin, the 12 murders are obviously the fault of SIG Sauer, not the hardened criminal who brutally murdered a dozen people with no apparent qualms. Supporting such an unjust lawsuit, which blames a lawful gun company for criminal misuse of its products, might just get Grässlin a job interview with the Brady Campaign, Bloomberg’s Everytown group or any other gun-ban organization here in the U.S. that is quick to blame the gun, not the violent murderer.
