Mar 14 - Court rules families of Sandy Hook victims can sue gunmaker Remington for attack
 

 
image


(HARTFORD, Conn.) — A divided Connecticut Supreme Court has ruled gun maker Remington can be sued over how it marketed the Bushmaster rifle used to k*ll 20 children and six educators at Sandy Hook Elementary School in 2012.

Justices issued a 4-3 ruling that reinstated a wrongful death lawsuit and overturned a lower court ruling that the lawsuit was prohibited by a 2005 federal law that shields gun manufacturers from liability in most cases when their products are used in crimes.

The plaintiffs include a survivor and relatives of nine people k*lled in the massacre. They argue the AR-15-style rifle used by shooter Adam Lanza is too dangerous for the public and Remington glorified the weapon in marketing it to young people.

Remington has denied wrongdoing and previously insisted it can’t be sued under the federal law.

I thought the NRA lobbied for a law that made it illegal to sue gun manufacturers.

Nvm, read the last part of the post.

Might be a move to bring attention to get a law repealed since a lot of people don't know that, yeah; under federal law, you can't sue gun manufacturers.

So when somebody runs somebody over on purpose do they sue the auto company?

That's what I'm saying? Someone dies in a drunk driving accident, the victims going to sue Ford? Budweiser?

What about when that kid got hacked to death in NYC with machetes? Those manufacturers can get sued too?

Suing for marketing practices is one thing. Wrongful death is another thing.

The second amendment is in the costitution to protect the people from a tyranical government not deer hunting. The same people that complain about the second amendment cry when an unarmed man gets shot by a police force with military weapons

The reason the ammendment was left so broad is because the people who make the laws are the ones its meant to protect us from and if their weapons evolve our's have to. You can't protect yourself with a six shooter if the other person has a AR.

Sets a terrible precedent. They should make it way harder to get a gun in the first place, and you should be required to take a gun safety course as well I believe.

It wont make it past the appeal

If somebody dies going 200 mph in a Ferrari should they sue the company for making them go fast?

Ferraris r not designed by the souel purpose of ripping through human flesh

But the case will probably get thrown out

I'm not a gun owner. Never needed one. I think those families that lost their 1st graders deserve everything they can get though. If it puts Remington out of business who cares. There's still more than enough guns in America to protect yourself with

People with the car analogies...if the car manufacturer advertised that the car was good for running over people and then someone ran you over then yes you could sue the manufacturer.

They're saying that this gun manufacturer was advertising in that type of way. They have been granted access to Remington's internal documents on their advertising policies.
