SCOTUS will not stop victims of the Sandy Hook maniac from suing gun maker Remington Arms for some of the damages caused by their product. Hooray!
Even though gun maker lobbyist – the NRA – managed to get a federal law passed exempting gun makers from such liability, there is an exception. If the gun maker knowingly broke the law in marketing their guns, their exemption is forfeit. In Connecticut it is against the law for advertising to promote violent, criminal behavior. The plaintiffs argue that Remington advertising did exactly that.
