    So the suit is no longer about what Remington manufactured, but how they marketed it. It claims that they marketed the rifle to people for criminal use. I think this is going to be a tough sell, since the gun was not even bought by the Sandy Hook perpetrator, but his mother, who was also killed by the perpetrator. There is no indication that the mother had a criminal intent.
    I seem to remember the mother had a connection to the FBI also.

    if they go down this path, Hollyweird with all the violent movies, and music videos celebrating gang thug culture about gun totin cop killin gangs should be targeted first by the left. That is blatant promotion and sensationalizing, glorifying death destruction by criminals.

    Ridiculous!.......Similar to Blaming the Auto Manufacturers for allowing the Alcoholic to get behind the steering wheel. Blaming the Cable Company for dead batteries in the remote.

    If the money of the wealthy, whether they be individuals or businesses, can't be stolen by taxes then it can be stolen with lawsuits. All part of the take from thee and give to me redistribute the wealth plan.

    Unfortunately there are many gun owners who will still shop at Wal Mart even though they know Wal Mart partnered with Everytown for Gun Safety just because it is convenient and they can save a few bucks.

    Women are getting raped because national news stations dress and paint their women cast up to look like hookers, can the victims sue the news stations?

    Well, I've never caught the Remington tv spot that pushes customers to go out and shoot their neighbors either...

    The Supreme Court will most likely end with, and strike down this ruling. It's stupid that this would even reach that far, but the crazies keep getting elected. People that my parents and grandparents would have just smiled at and ignored. The smiling being the general politeness of the times.

    Most of the "village idiots" as they would have been called, would never have been elected to anything.

    The families filed a lawsuit against Remington in 2015, alleging that the company manufactured and marketed a military weapon that ended up in the hands of a civilian.
    Show me ONE military, anywhere in the world, that has equipped its troops with the Bushmaster XM15- E2S. Until you can do that, there's nothing to talk about.

    Is the Bushmaster xm15 e2s mil spec?

    No, not at all. Here's a quick down and dirty of how mil-spec the Bushmaster XM15-e2s is not. First, the buffer tube is a commercial tube, not a mil-spec tube. ... The Bushmaster XM15-e2s's bolt carrier group is a semi-auto BCG.

    Oh well...another story where the 2A takes a hit. A small cut. It's just one small cut. She has only taken a few hundred thousand of these small cuts. I mean for real...who dies a death of a thousand cuts?

    The winners need to file a wasteful, time-consuming lawsuit to force the losers to pay. That will show them! I agree that these baseless suits should cost the plaintiff dearly when lost/tossed.
