Parental Malfeasance

Anyone who really knows me surely know that I don't like Wal-Mart because of their "Always Low Prices (at any cost to supplier companies and exploited third-world workers)!" motto.  But I have to take there side in this one.  If a company follows the laws that govern gun sales, you can't sue them for selling your adult child a gun that they then used to kill themselves.  I'm sorry.  It's tragic, but Wal-Mart didn't shoot them!  What's next?  If some nut job jumps in front of my car and I run them over, do I get sued for "wrongful death" because I could have taken an alternate route to my destination?  The only things I see coming out of this case are two parent who are prolonging the agony over the death of their child, and a group of lawyers with jinglier pockets!
