Court rules that families can sue gunmaker over Sandy Hook shooting

A Connecticut court ruled on Thursday that families of children gunned down in the 2012 Sandy Hook massacre can sue gunmaker Remington Outdoor. In the shooting, a 20-year-old killed 20 school children in addition to six adult staff, using a Remington AR-15 Bushmaster rifle. The families held that Remington is partially responsible for marketing the weapon based on its militaristic appeal.

this sets a dangerous precedent. you don't sue Ford when someone runs down a pedestrian in one, and they kill 10x what guns will ever kill.

Whatever judge allowed this to go forward should be impeached.

Holding a product manufacturer responsible for the actions taken by the individual in possession of the product is nonsensical.

This is a case where the lawsuit is based on the fact that the gun did what it was designed to do, you pull the trigger and a bullet comes out. The gun did not aim itself, the gun is simply a tool. This suit is a sham.

This lawsuit better not go anywhere. You can't sue a manufacturer because some asshole used their product to do some evil shit.

What in the holy hell are these mentally retarded judges thinking! This is a blatant disregard for rule of law. What an abomination. I guess now we can sue every knife manufacturer for every stab victim or every bat maker for every bat related assault or how about we just hold the person with the inanimate object in their hands responsible for their actions. Seriously this is the largest failing in reason and logic we have seen in the justice system since roe v wade.

Holding manufacturers responsible for the actions of the individual in possession of their product... absolute nonsense. This attempt at a cash grab off the deaths of children is shameful.

I hope these people go broke after they have to pay Remingtons legal fees. Anti gun is anti American.

I guess we need to sue knife manufacturers for all the stabbings and all the bat manufacturers for assualts. This is the most flawed decision I have heard of in a long long time. Luckily there is no way this case can be proven fault on the manufacturer unless the weapon failed and killed the operator.

Sounds like this Judge was one of the "privileged" leftist that bought their way through school to get a fake degree.

wasn't that gun taken from his trunk after the shooting. The first reports were he killed his mother with the AR and shot up the school with a pistol and a revolver

They're filling suit against the advertising by Remington. They say it glorified the violence...

the court dismissed all but a "wrongful marketing claim." Anyone ever seen a commercial for an AR-15? a billboard or radio commercial? there is no wrongful marketing here. this is a waste of the courts time.
