    That'll depend on circumstances, but if a car dealer sold a car to a man who told him he was looking for a good vehicle to mow down people, and that could be demonstrated in court, liability would probably attach.

    Should that make a car dealer liable for the actions of another person? Besides, what gun manufacturer sells directly to the public? Isn't a gun dealer still liable in that case?

    The answer to your question (as with all such question) is that we'd figure that out over time. That's how the whole "free market theory" works. It's iterative and eventually we'd have standards and regulations (just simply not authoritarian) and we'd get there.

    The second amendment to the US constitution has prevented that from happening.

    And now I'm trying to decide which would encounter more instantaneous force, a brake caliper or a gun barrel.

    It can stop a 4400 lb car going 250 MPH in about 8 seconds. Talk about kinetic energy!
