Sorry SW, I should have posted in the national thread as you did so everyone could have seen it.

This one should go nowhere.

Quote:
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.
Unsuited for hunting, home defense, huh? A kid kills his mother with one she owned and bought. The punk never bought the gun. How is Bushmaster liable for that little matter, that they didn't provide (nor did the FFL) the gun to the murderer?

Fail...

IMO, this is solely because the legislative push from Newtown was, on balance, a failure.

No states switched from Pro to Anti
Three states went more Anti
Something like five states went Anti to Pro

OOPS!

Ditto - a perfectly lawful firearm, not to mention that the weapon apparently operated as designed, so no negligence or strict liability for a defective product. What happened is tragic, but it isn't the manufacturer's fault, and sh*t like this makes me lose sympathy for the families.

Yeah, good luck with that one. That's like suing Ford or Chevy because some dumbass got drunk and slid into a family of 5. I mean, seriously?

This lawsuit is for publicity only - they have no prayer of winning it in the courts.

There is more than ample precedent for this to dismissed on summary judgment.
Going NOWHERE fast.
