Years ago a group of idiots in California lobbied for all references of Darwin to be removed from textbooks. Since California purchases a huge percentage of textbooks, book publishers just made them all the same for the rest of the country. If California does this, then you’ll see safety options on saws in every state. But for other states if will probably be an option.

To look at it in another way. If it is mandated, it might be impetus enough for other saw manufacturers to finally care about their customers and design their own safety mechanisms. I’m sure there are other ways of doing it that wouldn’t infringe on Sawstops patent rights.
