    Sandy Hook Remington Lawsuit Update

    Not sure if this is the right place for the thread or if this is old news but Remington lost their hearing against the Victims.

    Tldr, Connecticut Supreme Court says they can be sued.

    Thanks for this update.
    .....so, bottom line, the CT S.C. says a company is responsible for the misuse of its products......

    ...because the advertising made it appeal to potential mass shooters.

    I guess the families of anyone killed in a car crash where speed was a factor can sue the car manufacturer for making the car look fast in ads.

    Remington should follow up with a mirror lawsuit against the government since they had followed all the laws that the government imposed on us all.

    Want to buy:
    1966 East German AKM kit
    TYPE 1 kit
    North Korean kit
    Serbian M76 sniper vest (M-99 A3)


    If I was not on some government watch list, I'd be insulted.

    Cool. Think of the possibilities!

    If some drunk asshole ever hits my car, I'll sue whoever made the booze, the manufacturer of the car he drove, and the doctor for trying to get me hooked on opiates. Then I'll sue whatever news agency that tries to run a story on why I'm suing so many people.

    I'll protect all my ill-gotten gains within numerous corporations and open a sleazy men's fashion store called "SUITS ME" and specialize in outerwear that's extremely stain resistant.

    Before you know it, the next gun you buy will make you click ‘I Agree’ to terms and conditions that no one has ever read.

    They already have instruction books, the modification warning, the 'lol this is a fucking gun its dangerous' warning and the lead warning. I like how comically inept the idea is though and fits perfectly with the futility of things. Oh it's against policy to use this against people? SHIT I better not do it then if it's against corporate policy man that was close.

    Better start showing cars going real slow...or just parked! Those fast cars appeal to hit and run drivers

    Maybe they should sue the MSM networks for making mass shooters famous and advertising to the next psycho on meds the types of places to go shoot up. One thing always ignored and left out of the damage path of these litigious entities is how shooters often times were influenced by a previous shooters rampage.

    The SC took the case to set the president. Remember, we have Gorsuch and Kavanaugh. Trump said he picked them because they were pro second amendment and pro life. By the time the court gets to this case RGB will be gone...so we will in all likelihood have another on our side. Yes, if we lose we can sue toothpaste makers for cavities. Really, how much money would you bet on Remington being sued? What happened to the parents who tried to sue Luckygunner? The sky is not falling. I think this will be a win for us. Once they lose this case they will not try again for a long long time. Yes Remington/Freedom Group will be out of pocket until they win the counter suit or are compensated for their legal costs.

    I'm 100% sure it will get taken up by a higher court and get swatted down. Probably with some of the liberal judges siding as well. This is NOT a precedent that anybody wants to set for precisely the above reasons. Being liable for illegal acts taken by users of your product would make so many other companies liable that basically nobody could sell knives, tools, or anything else that could be used to murder someone. So basically everything.

    The manufactures of ANYTHING should be quite alarmed at this development.

    Suing toothpaste makers because you got a cavity?
    Suing car makers because of drunk drivers?
    Suing a candy company because you are diabetic?
    Suing a ski company because the top deck has a design that is marketed towards you hurting yourself?

    It will be more whipping up the high emotions of those who can not control themselves and in the end it will get squashed as it is too much of a threat to daily life.

    Destabilization of society is what they want so they can step in and offer an even worse horror disguised as your salvation.
