It's highly unfortunate when these accidents and tragedies happen, such as the ones that led to the recalls and safety issues that have been named. And in no way am I saying that the manufacturers aren't at fault when something is faulty with a firearm that bears their name.
But we're talking about deadly weapons made by the hand of man. Mistakes, accidents, and tragedies are going to happen in this business. When we all took the safety course, the "Ten Commandments" of firearms safety weren't on the front page to be cute or clever. They're on the front page to remind us that the hand of man fails, and even when you think something's not possible, it's still very possible ... including the discharge of a weapon when the safety is on and your finger is no where near the trigger.
As I said, it's unfortunate and tragic, but it happens, and the company is not excused. Hopefully, we all learn from it, including manufacturers, and take precautions in our own ways to ensure this never happens.
That all being said, I'd have to agree with those who say that Remington is pretty good at owning up to their mistakes/flaws/malfunctions of their weapons and putting it on their websites for all to see. I'm a believer that any owner of a firearm owes it to himself and his family to check periodically for recalls/defects for the weapons he owns. God bless.
