America’s Favorite Handgun Has Major Malfunction
Another day, another scandal.
This time, it’s not a corrupt politician, or another big business profiting from your sweat and blood.
This one’s a bit different – it’s about a firearm, the SIG Sauer P320, touted as one of America’s favorite handguns.
But let’s call it as it is – a ticking time bomb nestled snugly in the holsters of our boys in blue, and our fellow patriots, if these allegations prove to be true.
Law enforcement agencies, from local police departments to federal officers, hold this firearm in high regard, and many a civilian has followed suit.
But now, we’re told that the very tool that’s supposed to protect us might be causing harm.
The SIG Sauer P320 is under fire, so to speak, for allegedly firing on its own, with approximately 150 claims of injuries or near misses.
Let me be candid with you here: I personally own a SIG Saur P320, and have never had any issues at all with it.
But that’s not what many are saying.
Lawyers have swarmed like vultures, claiming the absence of an external manual safety, known as a tab trigger, to be a colossal design flaw, one that could turn a reliable tool into an unpredictable weapon.
As it stands, no lives have been lost, thank God, but numerous individuals have been injured, some of them our brave law enforcement officers like Sgt. Ashley Catatao, and Sgt. Michael Colwell, who have stories to tell of a firearm turned rogue.
SIG Sauer, our alleged culprit, ensconced in their New Hampshire headquarters, have yet to offer a response.
Their silence is deafening, and as one of America’s most prominently recognized firearms manufacturers, their absence from the conversation is a failure of duty to their customers.
It’s worth taking a moment to think about what this means in a broader sense. We’re a nation of hard workers, of self-starters, of people who take responsibility for our actions.
We believe in meritocracy, and we believe in personal responsibility. And, by God, we believe in our right to bear arms.
But that right, like all others, comes with responsibilities – to ensure safety, to use wisely, and to make sure that the tools we use aren’t causing more harm than good.
SIG Sauer, and indeed any manufacturer of products that carry such weight and potential for harm, must ensure that their products are as safe as possible.
This isn’t just a question of faulty design – it’s a question of trust, and a question of life and death.
In the words of Benjamin Franklin, “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”.

my Beretta 9MM (that now identifies as a wireless hole puncher) has never let me down or tried to kill me. IF it was good enough for the military in the early 1980’s, IT was good enough for me. Haven’t had to put anyone down yet, but I have much hope, that will soon change, IF we don’t wake and grow (a pair) up. Amerika is full of cowards, with a 2nd amendment? how sad, useless

Bulls**t lawsuit, this has been debunked over and over and over. The only ones keeping this lie alive are ambulance chasing lawyers, idiot cops with poor trigger discipline and Glocktards pissed of the military didn’t pick their favorite cult gun. If you believe this stuff, then you still believe Obama for saying “If you like your Doctor you can keep it” and Biden for saying “I’ll unite America, not divide it!”
Have fun in your fantasy world…

If America would just return to John Moses Browning’s M1911A1 .45 pistol built by Colt, among others, they wouldn’t have this problem. Also no need to double-tap anyone.
