Judge dismisses families’ case against Remington Arms

breaking news

Judge Barbara Bellis dismissed the case on the grounds that federal law prevents lawsuits against gun manufacturers.

Expect to hear from Hillary Clinton on this: she wants to allow gun and ammunition manufacturers to be sued if their products are used in a crime, and if elected is expected to use executive order to bypass Congress. That would destroy the US firearms industry through litigation.

  • Good news.

      That’s what I like about gun companies.
      They don’t fold like the tobacco companies did.
      Or buy indemnification against future lawsuits from corrupt governments.

        I can’t believe there are any left with production in blue states.

        Like 2nd Amendment supporters in general, they know that if they give any ground, no matter how reasonable it seems, the retreat will never end.

      Yes, a case of a rare sane judge. These zealots were emboldened when people and governments were allowed to sue tobacco companies, which never should have happened.

        As I get older, I have experienced a few deleterious effects of alcohol consumption.
        Buuut, they would have been far worse if I had trusted my mother’s advice and allowed the psychiatric quacks to meddle with my brain chemistry when I was a teenager.
        She is now in end stage benzo and she ain’t coming back from it.

    Did she award costs to remington?

    did anyone try to sue the manufacturers of pressure cookers after the boston bombing?

      …or manufacturers of cars, knives, hammers, axes, chainsaws, pharmaceuticals, and rogue regulators and politicians that are killing us.

      Stop! Don’t give the slip and fall ambulance chasers any more ideas.

  • Alain

    What we should be seeing are the families of victims of jihad, killed or seriously wounded within their own country, suing their government for importing Muslims.

    • Clausewitz

      Might be possible if Trump wins, with Hillary, not so much.

    Makes me think of jihad of the pen to make jihad of the sword easier.
