Recalling Maths

Not really engineering maths...  That's calculus.  This is much simpler.

Statistics.

7.5 million guns with a "dangerously flawed" trigger made over a 70 year period yielding "dozens of deaths and injuries".

How many is "dozens"?

Let's call it 100.

1.43 per year?

75,000 rifles have no problem for every one that does?  Never mind that there'd be zero injuries and deaths if the 4 rules had been followed.

If the owners of all 7.5 million guns were to file claims, the court filings noted, it would cost Remington more than $487 million.
$64.93 per rifle.

So far only a microscopic fraction of owners have even bothered checking for more information.
