"The Supreme Court won’t stop a lawsuit brought by Sandy Hook victims’ families against Remington Arms Co., the manufacturer of the semi-automatic rifle that was used in the 2012 mass shooting at an elementary school".
"The Court decided not to take up an appeal by Remington.Depending on the outcome of the case, it could open the door to gun violence victims’ families suing gun manufacturers for damages".
I really wouldn’t consider myself a “gun advocate”; but the only ones I see benefiting from this are Trail Lawyers, since it has the capability of opening up litigation whenever someone is killed and/or injured by a gun and/or other inanimate objects.
Will it get this far?
Will judges throw cases out, since the real perpetrator in killings with guns is another human? .(After all; a gun can’t “kill” anyone in and of itself).
The gun doesn’t actually do the damage…it’s the projectile. How culpable will the bullet manufacturers be?
Does it open up litigation to other inanimate objects like knife manufacturers?
What say, 'ye, “PWI”?
The thread is OPEN.
