    They are going to argue that the AR-15 itself is defective because the manufacturer does not include the technology that keeps people other than the owner from being able to fire it and that defect removes it from the federal shield. Wait and see. This is going to be interesting.
    that's a losing argument and besides, there is federal legislation that prevents this sort of crappy nonsense.

    That law or technology doesn't and never has existed. You can't sue based on that.

    BTW: ths AR platform has been around since the sixties. Millions are in circulation. None have a device to prevent another from using it other than a trigger lock or a good safe.

    the attorneys need to be bankrupted for filing crap they know is designed purely to harass the defendants and has no legitimate legal theory. Given most police agencies have these same rifles is going to bitch slap this nonsense away as well. this sort of lawsuit is exactly why we need to adopt loser pays rules

    Read the lawsuit. That nobody has it as a standard does not mean that it does not exist or cannot be done. Hell, a high school student in Colorado just invented a smart gun.

    Having read the original lawsuit, I think you gun fetishers will be surprised at where that case is going with its arguments.
    Link to that? I already know the truth. Just wondering if you have the nerve to actually tell it.

    I feel for these people. I really do. But I hope that not only do they fail...which I'm sure they will...but I also hope that they will be counter sued for the money that its going to take to defend against this suit.
    I have to agree on every level with you

    Now if they had some proof that the manufacture was directly responsible for some illegal sells or distribution that would be one thing but if thier only argument (i havent read it yet) is "the rifle was made for the military and unsuited for civilian use." that got nothing really. While like you I feel for them, if i was the target of this Id have to respectfully tell them to stick up thier asses.

    Does your car have tech that limits who can use it? No. anyone with access to your key chain is a potential killer.

    The correct term would be "grieving parents of Adam Lanza's victims".
