    Sandy Hook families can sue gun manufacturer Remington, lower court ruling overturned

    2a lovers head's are gonna explode!

    State Supreme Court overturns lower court ruling, says Sandy Hook families can sue gun manufacturer Remington - Hartford Courant

    The Connecticut Supreme Court Thursday narrowly reversed a ruling by a lower court judge dismissing a lawsuit by the families of victims of the Sandy Hook shooting against Remington Arms Company, allowing the case to proceed.
    In a 4-3 decision the court remanded the landmark gun case back to Bridgeport Superior Court and possibly created a path that other mass shooting victims can follow to get around the federal Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act, known as PLCAA, which has protected the manufacturers of the AR-15 assault rifle from lawsuits.

    The gun manyfacturers’ continued aggressive marketing of a known public health hazard is not unlike the tobacco industry’s continued shameless marketing of smoking after studies had proven the tobacco/cancer link. They need to be held liable for pushing a known dangerous product on the public the same as the tobacco industry.

    Now if the public wants to keep buying these products, it should still be their prerogative, just like smoking. It should not be banned, as that invariably creates backlash out of spite alone. Let them keep buying it. A fool and his money must part. But the manufacturers should be held liable for false advertising and propagating myths with their claims of “guns make us safer” and the image of the real American and real man needing a huge gun to keep his home and country safe. This is no different than the Joe Camel advertising campaign by the tobacco industry to kids and adolescents that smoking makes you cool.

    Wait are you suggesting the guns themselves are causing people to commit murder?

    A nuclear weapon is just a tool too. Because we all know nukes don’t kill people. People kill people. So time to stop the unconstitutional ban on public sales of nuclear arms, right?

    And what’s the worry about the North Koreans and Iranians getting nukes? If you ban nukes, they will just do the same thing with trucks and nail clippers, right?

    This is entirely unconstitutional, but I am sure you don't care.

    Studies by the centers for Disease Control (CDC) were showing that guns were a serious public health hazard, no different than smoking. That’s why the gun lobby pushed congress to ban further research there, and successfully pushed for gag orders on physicians from even being able to bring up the findings with their patients.

    Bans on research and gag orders in Physicians, because we are a free country, right?

    A nonsensical reply. Figures.
