Connecticut Supreme Court rules Sandy Hook Families can sue gun manufacturer

" After months of silence, the Connecticut Supreme Court on Thursday reinstated a wrongful death lawsuit filed by the families of nine victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting against Remington Arms, the manufacturer of the rifle used in the shooting. "

" The court's narrow decision, overturning a lower court judge, rules that Remington can be sued over its marketing practices under a Connecticut state law, despite protections offered to gun manufacturers by federal law. The ruling sends the case back to the lower court. "

I guess this means that whenever they find out who pumped 10 rounds into Gambino Crime Boss, Franky-Boy Cali and what guns they used, the Gambino Crime Family can sue the gun manufacturers.

So does that mean a person with diabetes can sue C+H Sugar? Or maybe Fiddler can sue the Brewery for being an alcoholic? Or maybe Usissys can sue McDonald's for being a 600lb Fatass? the lawsuits could be endless.

This state court ruing will be taken through the Federal appeals process.  Ultimately, the Federal Court will overrule this unconstituional ruling.  However, the damage will have been done.  Yesterday, Remington announced lay offs of 200 employees.. These days it's hard enough to remain in business and the gun grabbers have very deep pockets and will make any gun manufacturer's cost of defending themselves very costly.   http://www.waff.com/2019/03/13/remington-layoffs-hit-huntsville-facility/

Uncouth, but there is validity to thinking about it in this way.
  

If FaceBook memes and twitter accounts can sway elections, then either accept it as the new reality or let's figure out a new form of government. Because democracy is therefore unfit in the modern age.

Why should we allow thugs to sue

It is not the same as suing the gun manufacturer because you decided to shoot yourself in the ass

This sets a terrible precedent. Manufacturers will simply stop selling to those who live in Connecticut.

For the record, I have no problem with these individuals being allowed to sue.

I'll have a real issue if the manufacturer is found liable.

That's the Catch-22.  It depends upon who is making the decision of whether a gun manufacturer can be held liable for how it's product is used.  The original court ruling said Remington was not.  Now, on appeal, the Connecticut State Supreme Court says they are liable. Now it can be appealed to the US District Court and then whichever side loses will appeal to the US Court of Appeals for that District, Ultimately, after Remington spends millions in legal fees, it may be decided at the US Supreme Court.  AND..That's the point.  The deep pocket anti-gun lobby will make it too expensive for any gun manufacturer to withstand the l(baseless) legal challenges.

Firearms manufacturing is a very competitive business.  Ithaca gun Company went out of business in the area I grew up a long time ago.  Remington began in Illion, New York and still have their main plant there.  It really impacts small towns when these employers go under.
