    Sandy Hook Suit Ruling Could Pose Liability ‘Nightmare’ For Gunmakers

    The Connecticut Supreme Court ruled on March 14 that Remington Arms, maker of the Bushmaster XM15-E2S Adam Lanza used to kill 20 children and six educators at Sandy Hook Elementary School in December 2012, can be sued because of the way the gun was marketed.

    Jim we know this is horseshit but if the folks of Conn. don't do something about it then it could end up our way too.

      Court said because 'the way the gun was marketed' Made buyer feel like a big man.

      What about a car manuf. who advertises a vehicle making someone feel special, and the car gets in a accident and kills him ?

        The rifle used was stolen from the gunman's mother after he had killed her. So, there was no purchase involved. Might as well sue Hollywood studios and video game manufacturers while they are at it.

          Could not have said it better myself, if the ar-15 advertisement made him feel that way, then what did modern warfare do to him.

            I recall seeing an ad for men's elevator ("lift") shoe that used a jingle with the words, "Now you can be taller than she is, amigo."

                The court has ruled that an avenue for a lawsuit exists.

                Doesn't mean they have a case.
                Just says if they want to sue, this is the only way they can.

                And with the gun being stolen and no marketing fitting the narrative..............they have no honest chance of winning.

                But in this country we have Hillary walking free. So anything is possible.

                  Didn't Lanza kill his mother to access the guns?
                  What did he use to do that?
                  How about going after the psych and pharma?
                  Aren't the overwhelming number of mass shootings done by folks under "professional care"?
                  IMHO most shrinks and neurologists are quacks.

                    Logic and a backbone........the politically correct (dishonest) don't like that.
                    They want you on happy pills.
                    Never mind they're on them because they are miserable (due to poor character/life decisions).

                    Lanza was screwed up. His mom was an idiot.
                    She paid for it, as did others.
                    The kid is to blame.
                    But I'd toss a big chunk of it on mom and whatever shrinks were involved.

                    Zero to Remington.

                    Hell, the libs ought to sue the manufacturer or the car he drove to the school.....Honda has more money than Big Green.................

                        You boys seem to be missing the point of the ruling.
                        Focus on the advertising.

                          IF Remington caves and pays out it will jeopardize other manufacturers.

                            IF a potential judgement is big enough they will go bankrupt and re organize.

                              As the actual purchaser of the weapon, the mother would not have been influenced by the advertising, but she could have been buying the gun for her son, and the choice was his.
                              Makes sense to me.

                                anybody worth $15.00 an hour is probably already making $15.00 an hour.

                                Iran has 3 oil tankers (not ours) should we do anything ? What ? Be realistic, attacking the tankers would probably result in them being burned.

                                It's simply tit for tat. Brits took one of their tankers, they take two of the brits. More important is why is there even an embargo. We broke the deal,...
