No you are spot on. It is absurd to think retailers should have responsibility for people who buy their products. That's just asking for more lawsuits. People will continue to push the limits well beyond their own skill/knowledge level and ultimately they pay the price sooner or later. Sucks but having companies take responsibilities is just asking for more law suits to be filled by money hungry people. In my will I have it stated no law suits are to be filled in the event of an avalanche death. It is my responsibility while in the backcountry or at a resort to choose what I ride and when I ride it.
