    I doubt that. From what I read Lanza was a very particular person. He only ate his foot a certain way and probably had a specific gun he used when playing video games.

    Remington is definitely culpable. More gun companies will suffer the same fate as gun violence increases.

    You still don't get that Remington didn't make or market the Bushmaster AR-15, and the middle aged mom who bought it likely wasn't influenced by any male-focused marketing.

    PS: Soldiers in combat aren't taught or ordered to kill children.
    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.

    Claiming that Remington is culpable is like claiming that Little Debbie is culpable. Neither had anything to do with the Sandy Hook shooting.

Remington 1100s used to dominate skeet shooting but in the last 20 years, the far more reliable (no O rings to break) Beretta semi autos have far eclipsed the 1100 and its brother the 1187. Recently Remington introduced the Versamax semi auto that is an excellent shotgun (we have two) but that's limited market. Remington's attempt to make a semi auto self defense pistol sort of flopped at first.

    I don't know anyone who would buy a Bushmaster and not because of Lanza. the SIG MCX-used by the guy who massacred all the gays in Orlando, used one and most dealers cannot keep those MCXs in stock since they are so well made
    I hear post 2007 Remington 870's are absolute garbage QC, which is why my express tactical jams/rusts so easily. On /r/guns they call them Rustingtons.

    IIRC some company bought them and ran the company into the ground, milking the goodwill of their reliability, kinda like Pyrex.

    Would this be a problem for any baseball bat manufacturer, knife manufacturer, blunt object manufacturer, chemical manufacturer, etc. etc.? Or does your position only apply to gun manufacturers?

    The intended purpose of a gun is to end another's life. The intended purpose of a baseball bat is to hit a baseball.

    Smith & Wesson, Sturm, Ruger, Sig Sauer, burn all those companies into the ground.

    It baffles me how these CEO's and companies executives can sleep at night knowing their products is involved in the killing of innocent children and civilians. They literally have blood on their hands.

    This is a great sign. The people are speaking. Good Americans don't want to give money to blood companies like Remington.
    Are you serious, do t=you think that if they do go belly up that there will be no more guns? That's like saying if Ford and GM go belly up that Toyota won't fill the void.
