Bottom-feeding lawyers are coming out of the woodwork, “Families Of Newtown Shooting Victims Sue Rifle Manufacturer“:
“The families of nine of the 26 people killed and a teacher wounded two years ago at the Sandy Hook Elementary School filed a lawsuit Monday against the manufacturer, distributor and seller of the rifle used in the shooting. …”
The Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act should put a stop to this.
“… The negligence and wrongful death lawsuit, filed in Bridgeport Superior Court, asserts that the Bushmaster AR-15 rifle should not have been made publicly available because it was designed for military use and is unsuited for hunting or home defense. The AR-15 was specifically engineered for the United States military to meet the needs of changing warfare,” attorney Josh Koskoff said in a release. “In fact, one of the Army’s specifications for the AR-15 was that it has the capability to penetrate a steel helmet.” …”
Anyone can easily Google the history of the AR-15 and disprove this bullshit statement.
