Court Rules Sandy Hook Parents Can Sue Gun Manufacturer

A ruling by the Connecticut Supreme Court has cleared the way for families of Sandy Hook victims to sue the makers of the gun used in the infamous 2012 shooting.

By a narrow 4-3 decision, the court reinstated a wrongful death lawsuit that claims gun maker Remington glorified violence in the advertising for its Bushmaster rifle. One ad used the slogan “Consider your man card reissued”.

On December 14, 2012, 20-year-old Adam Lanza opened fire inside Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, CT, killing 20 students and 6 teachers before taking his own life.
