Court Rules Sandy Hook Families Can Sue Gun Maker Remington

Recommended Posts

Because this decision involves interpretation of a federal statute, the gunmaker will almost certainly appeal it to the U.S. Supreme Court, and Remington could also prevail at a trial, so this is just a first step toward manufacturer liability. But unless SCOTUS steps in to stop a trial, it could represent a blow to the gun industry even if it eventually wins the case, as the Hartford Courant noted:

It also paves the way for the families to subpoena internal documents on how the gun companies have marketed the AR-15, which has become the weapon of choice for mass shooters. The gun manufacturers have closely guarded information on how they market the assault weapons …

 

“The families’ goal has always been to shed light on Remington’s calculated and profit-driven strategy to expand the AR-15 market and court high-risk users, all at the expense of Americans’ safety. Today’s decision is a critical step toward achieving that goal,” [attorney Josh] Koskoff added [in a statement].

Isnt the "families goal" irrelevant here? The perp didnt buy the weapon. His mother did. Their entire reasoning is absolute garbage. Only a court in a liberal leaning state could side with this.

The law is clear.  This judge should be disbarred.

They have to attack the gun industry the way they did the tobacco industry. Make it too expensive for consumers and the market will eventually collapse. Impose an annual tax on each and every gun a person owns after the first one that they are entitled to by the Constitution.

Wait for the knock on the door. You'll give 'em up without much resistance. If not, the truncheon and the jackboot.

Dummyrats are pathetically ignorant, I need not a ar-15, If I wanted to commit mass murder that little gun would be a complete nothing in the equation.Dummyrats cant see past their nose and are extreme shallow thinkers.

The knock will never come, and the small chance it ever would, 1 knock would be all there every will be, then the problem will be gone again.

My car ran over some kids.

Right, so if you get hit in the head by a baseball, you sue the manufacturer?...if you step in a hole, you sue the manufacturer of the shovel?...if you get hit by a car, you sue the manufacturer of the car?

I don’t think you have any idea what would really happen.  The people will not roll over.  Most police and military support the 2nd A.  

 

You say you will be first thru the door, which I laugh at.

I wonder if people can start suing car makers if someone is killed with one of their products?

 

That is essentially what this court is saying should be allowed.
