Evan Osnos, author of this week’s New Yorker feature on the U.S. gun industry, in a Reddit AMA:
Anybody — especially people who favor free markets — should
conclude that the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act was a
big mistake. Imagine if Exxon was protected from liability after
the Valdez? That’s not how markets should work. It will probably
be revised or repealed to make sure that companies are doing safe
work — as with any industry.
