Remington Now Being Sued?

#1 Post by stretch » Thu Mar 14, 2019 11:52 am

Well, it will be interesting to see how this turns out.

I can't see the Supreme Court allowing it., but stranger
things have happened.

How is Remington responsible for a parent displaying poor
judgement in the care and feeding of a child with mental
health issues?

Pretty ridiculous that this was even considered never-mind being allowed by our legal system.

Wasn’t “our legal system” bunch of Connecticut judges.
Crazier stuff has happened but it seems pretty thin to me. I always use the analogy on liberals when they believe I should lose my guns.
If someone on the interstate is caught speeding then everybody for a half mile in both directions should get a ticket....”that’s crazy, I didn’t do anything wrong!”
EXACTLY.

* MONEY the root of all evil *

* Little KIDS were killed *

* PARENTS looking for "someone to pay" *

* LAWYERS out to make a buck *

* Not holding the guilty party as GUILTY AND REPSONSIBLE *


Put all those together -- and this is what you get...

A quote from no less than William Shakespeare in Henry VI, Part 2, Act IV, Scene 2 comes to mind -- but given the topic, I think I'll omit posting it... (Look it up.)

This Link to a Reuters.com article (click here) doesn't generate the subscription request, but has similar info on how this lawsuit has been allowed to proceed.

What a crazy world we live in..............

Ran across the article somewhere else.

i believe that it could be summed up by saying that these people are claiming that Remington knowingly marketed a firearm that is too dangerous for the public to own to people that they knew were potentially dangerous.

Keep in mind that the perpetrator of the crime at Sandy Hook was a chronically mentally-ill teenager who stole his mother's legally-owned firearm from a locked cabinet and murdered her with it before going on to commit the larger and more horrific murders at a local school.

Are these people seriously claiming that this young man and other teenagers like him are a part of Remington's target demographic?

Remington should counter-sue every single one of these money-grubbers. Bad public relations or not.

OL number 7 this to correct your post. The KJV 1611 says the WANT of money is the root of all evil.

Additionally, it was alleged that, knowing the above, Remington actively marketed said killing machine by glorifying it to young people.

The issue to allow a lawsuit passed, but AFAIK the Sandy Hook folk have not yet filed suit(s) against Remington.

Its gun banning by means other then the law. If you can make gun makers liable for misuse of their product they have to carry huge liability insurance policies to protect themselves. Those cost lots of money and those costs get passed on to buyers and pretty soon no one can afford to buy a new gun and firearms manufacturers go out of business.

And with them out of business and no jobs at stake in the discussion it is one more step to ending the 2A.

It's total BS, and I hope that Remington wins the suit. But either way they'll spend millions fighting this frivolous suit. Might be tough for a company that's already trying to just stay afloat.
