This is sad. Grief-stricken families being used by greedy lawyers. The claim that any of these parties is in any way “responsible” for the acts of a mad man like A*** L**** is asinine and indefensible. Bob Owens believes this case will be tossed. I hope he is correct
…..we have to look at the frivolous lawsuit filed by fame-hungry lawyers against firearm manufacturer Bushmaster, a firearms distributor, and a gun store, and shake my head at the sheer stupidity of the case.
A law firm representing the families of nine of the 26 people killed and a teacher injured at the Sandy Hook Elementary School says it has filed a lawsuit against the manufacturer, distributor and seller of the rifle used in the shooting.
The negligence and wrongful death lawsuit asserts that the Bushmaster AR-15 rifle should not have been made publicly available because it is a military weapon unsuited for civilian use.
In addition to Bushmaster, the families have named Camfour, a firearm distributor, and Riverview Gun Sales, the store where the Bushmaster rifle was purchased in 2010. Messages seeking comment from the defendants were not immediately returned.
Of course an AR-15 is a semi-automatic rifle, not a military weapon and of course the very idea of holding a manufacturer, distributor, or seller of a product for evil committed with said product is specious. Using these frivolous lawsuits is another strategy of the gun grabbers, like taxing ammo, or any number of other tactics. I pray, as we all should that this fails.
