    A manufacturer can't be liable under negligent entrustment for the actions of a retail purchaser. Whatever gave you the idea that they could?

    Sorry, I must have quoted the wrong part of that. The status I was referring to was 'stopped.' And that that status could change to 'dead.'

    Fair enough. I've done worse.

    Re: Great news! Remington files for bankruptcy

    The fundamental question we need to ask ourselves is simple yet paramount: are guns safe?

    The answer is no. Not only are guns inherently dangerous, I have seen lawsuits of guns shooting themselves, malfunctioning, firing without pulling a trigger, etc..

    This is an industry in clear need of regulation.

    Gun defect lawsuits:

    Taurus Class Action
    Judge approves $239 million settlement over defective Taurus pistol

    Highly regulated car industry:

    There is no loophole. The Brady Act works exactly as the Democrats who wrote it, voted on it, signed it into law and affirmed it intended it to work.

    Depends what hands they're in.

    That has been an issue with some of the more modern Remingtons and that's why I don't buy their products anymore. I do believe Remington is being negligent with their product production.

    Maybe. The survival rate for Chapter XI companies is 25%.

    The one's that survive have a healthy core business but may be overly leveraged. The relief from restructuring of burdensome debt allows the good business to emerge from a bad situation. If the core business is failing, which is likely here, the bankruptcy is just an orderly payoff from the assets of the business.

    What will happen here is probably relief from the lawsuits offset by the fact that the shareholder's equity will be wiped out. In essence, the victims sued them for everything they had, and they shareholders gave them everything they had..... the core business is left with a fighting chance with its creditors in control.
