    Remington is being sued

    Seems the Connecticut Supreme Court ruled there can be a wrong full death law suit over the Sandy Hook shooting because a Remington Bushmaster was used.
    The nails are being gathered for the gun ownership coffin!!

    What is the "Remington Bushmaster"?
    Semi-auto, I'd assume.

    Perhaps logic will prevail. The manufacturer will be found not liable and the lawsuits of emotion will stop.

    The automobile manufactures will be fighting alongside Remington on that one! A Chevy was used in a bank robbery. A Ford ran over my daughter. They must be liable.

    I wonder if they get credit when their weapons are used to save lives.

    The lawsuit centers around Remington's semi-auto Bushmaster AR-15 ACR platform but will tarnish everything with the Bushmaster moniker from Remingtons sporting 742 in 30.06 through all the firearms chambered for the Bushmaster 450 cartridge whether they be single shot, bolt action, or semi-auto. Won't matter to the uninformed public whether it has a wood stock or the dreaded modular "assault weapon" configuration, the name Bushmaster itself may well become a media poison buzzword and shorthand for many a thing it is not..

    It's just the liberal aholes in New England politics. If it gets to the US Supeme Court it will get thrown out. Let's sue the pharmaceutical companies for making all the drugs we give these kids to make them "normal".

    Just some publicity hungry ambulance chasing law firm being funded by the anti-gun lobby to put the shits up the gun manufacturers – storm in a tea cup – it’ll never stand up in court

    Unless someone decides to sue Remington for a round not chambering correctly in the Bushmaster 450 SD of course ……

    I am suing the Parker Pen Company. Somebody with a Parker Pen wrote me a letter that hurt my feelings. Not all wounds can be seen. It affects my ability to wake up and be responsible for myself and my actions. I am contemplating a Go Fund Me page.

    ...or was it a Cross Pen? I have been victimized so much I do not know who to sue first.

    Wait...it may have been an email. Microsoft?

    Ford will surely be sued into oblivion in no time for how many people it's Mustangs have run over at car shows.
