I suspect Glock is covering its butt against product liability suits stemming from people being accidentally shot due to the absence of a manual safety device. The company faced many such suits early on because police officer and civilian NDs were widespread.

When Glock takes itself out of the liability mix by putting the warning in red in its manual, the full responsibility lands squarely on the gun owner.
