Remington Arms, an American gunmaker, agreed that $73 Million would be paid to nine families who lost loved ones in the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre, Connecticut, in 2012.
Adam Lanza, 20 years old, was the shooter. Remington’s Bushmaster XM15E2S rifle was used to shoot him.
What about the 2005 Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act?
Remington’s marketing was a major focus of the families’ lawyers. Remington used imagery and phrases like “Control Your Destiny” and “Bravery on Duty” in order to suggest military imagery. This is illegal in Connecticut and was partly responsible for Lanza’s death.
It is possible to sue Remington.
He stated that he wasn’t looking for a financial settlement. Remington is the nation’s oldest gunmaker.
Remington Arms declared bankruptcy for the second time in 2020. Remington offered initially $33 million but ultimately agreed to $73 million.
Remington has sold some of its firearm-related businesses. JPMorgan has also taken over a part of the pie.
JPMorgan was asked not to interfere in the lawsuit by the family members.
Is the Sandy Hook shooting preventable? Is the Sandy Hook shooting “preventable?”
The FBI also found evidence that Lanza was a child pedophile. Robert Aaron Long, a Georgia spa gunman, claimed that he murdered six prostitutes in order to stop his sexual addiction.
Is Remington’s marketing an influence in this video? It seems unlikely. Lanza bought the gun from his mother who is a gun enthusiast.
It can be difficult to sympathize and understand the families of victims of mass shootings. Adam Lanza was that “thing”.
More lawsuits against gunmakers can be expected if liberals don’t examine the real reason behind shootings like those mentioned. Liberals oppose guns and see a way that gun companies could suffer or dissolve and make a lot of money.
