Thread: Anti-Gunners Win Case To Potentially Bankrupt Gun Manufacturers

  1. #1

    Thumbs down Anti-Gunners Win Case To Potentially Bankrupt Gun Manufacturers

    On March 14, 2019 the Connecticut Supreme Court sided with anti-gun interests by giving the green-light for a lawsuit against companies that manufactured and sold the semi-automatic rifle that Adam Lanza used to kill 26 people at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
    The Sandy Hook victims’ relatives originally sued the gun manufacturer Remington in 2014 for facilitating this shooting.
    This recent ruling allows this lawsuit to potentially go to trial, which could legally compel gun companies to turn over internal communications and other sensitive information to anti-gun government agencies.
    The court agreed with the lower court judge’s decision to throw out claims that directly challenged the federal law, The Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act, protecting gun companies from federal litigation. However, the court did allow the case to move forward based on a state law regarding unfair trade practices.
    In the majority opinion, the judges stated that “it falls to a jury to decide whether the promotional schemes alleged in the present case rise to the level of illegal trade practices and whether fault for the tragedy can be laid at their feet.”
    This decision has opened up a new avenue for gun controllers to exploit in their quest to destroy gun rights in America. This new strategy of circumventing the rigid protections in federal laws that shield gun companies from litigation when their firearms are used to commit crimes will very likely be employed by gun controllers across the nation.

    The court is allowing the portion of the lawsuit concerning the "marketing" by Remington- not the production or selling of the weapon. I have not yet found examples of the marketing in question.

    "Specifically, if the defendants did indeed seek to expand the market for their assault weapons through advertising campaigns that encouraged consumers to use the weapons not for legal purposes such as self-defense, hunting, collecting, or target practice, but to launch offensive assaults against their perceived enemies, then we are aware of nothing in the text or legislative history of PLCAA to indicate that Congress intended to shield the defendants from liability for the tragedy that resulted,” Palmer wrote.

    Which is bogus and intended to bankrupt gun companies, just like the headline says.

    Oh Look! Sandy Hook is back! And out to bankrupt American gun companies, with outrageous lawsuits from real events! Icing on the cake? Some banker's multimillion alimonious exwife and forgotten son got offed when Lanza shot his mom and killed himself!

    See how I say nothing shameful about the victims? Is rich banker daddy also victim of his sons school shoot em up high score? No, rich banker daddy saw lots of problems evaporate.

    I don't remember any marketing by Remington that indicated their product was a good choice for shooting a bunch of kids. I don't have a tv though, so I guess I missed those commercials.

    Found a few images. Does "Adam L" in the first one refer to Adam Lanza?

    It will be interesting to see an example of this advertising. If they pull this one off, the armed forces are in big trouble for their commercials advocating the same. Oh, and FPS game manufacturers too... GTA made me do it.

    Pretty much this. But, it will cost the gun company MILLIONS to defend itself.

    You certainly were trying to make a case that there was some basis for the lawsuit.

    There isn't.

    Allowing a law suit to take place -- a HUGE WIN in a litigiously shy society such as ours.
