DETAILS: State Supreme Court Allows Sandy Hook Families To Sue AR-15 Manufacturer

The Supreme Court of Connecticut has decided to take a major stance against guns.

Family members of those killed in the Sandy Hook school shooting can now sue Remington, a gun manufacturer.

Think about that.

It’s pretty wild.

On Thursday, the Connecticut Supreme Court issued a remarkable ruling wherein it permitted to move forward a wrongful-death lawsuit filed by families of victims killed in the 2012 mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. With the decision, the Connecticut Supreme Court overturned the lower court’s dismissal and allowed one key aspect of the suit to proceed. But what makes the suit particularly noteworthy is whom it targets: Remington Outdoor Co., the maker of the rifle that was used in the tragic shooting.

[…]

The Connecticut Supreme Court did, however, dismiss several other of the plaintiffs’ claims. As The Journal notes, the only claim allowed to proceed is that against Remington’s marketing campaign, specifically. The Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act of 2005 (PLCAA), which The Daily Wire has reported on elsewhere, generally shields firearm manufacturers from direct legal liability for violence caused by a weapon absent a firearm dealer’s negligence or willful violation of another operative federal or state law.

What’s next?

Will Toyota be sued because a person gets in a car accident? That is clearly the precedent being set here.

Democrat Congressman Eric Swalwell of California might just run for president in 2020. Why?

Who knows?

Then again, candidate Donald Trump wasn’t given much of a chance from the jump when he declared back in 2015, either.

The thing about Swalwell is that he’s a typical progressive.

He wants guns confiscated by any means.

He even suggested nuking Americans who fight back.

From Daily Wire:

Swalwell made the comment in response to a May news article on his radical plan that was widely recirculated on Twitter on Friday in which he called for a $15 billion government program to confiscate millions of guns from Americans.
