PostSubject: Absurd: Gunmaker Remington can be sued over marketing of rifle used in Sandy Hook shooting, imbecilic court rules C   Thu Mar 14, 2019 8:59 pm

The maker of the semiautomatic rifle that was used to kill 20 children and six educators at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in 2012 can be sued because of the way the gun was marketed, the Connecticut Supreme Court ruled Thursday.
A federal law passed in 2005 that protects gunmakers from liability when their arms are used in the commission of crimes doesn’t apply in the lawsuit that names Remington, which makes the Bushmaster rifle that Adam Lanza wielded in carrying out the massacre in 2012 in Newtown, Connecticut, the court ruled in a 4-3 decision.
In doing so, justices overturned a lower-court ruling that found that the wrongful-death lawsuit brought by a survivor and nine of those killed in the attack couldn’t go forward against Remington, which has denied wrongdoing.
