Remington Asks Supreme Court to Take on Sandy Hook Wrongful Death Lawsuit

A gun manufacturer is asking the Supreme Court to take on a wrongful death lawsuit which involves families of Sandy Hook victims.

Last month the Connecticut Supreme Court ruled Remington could be sued based on its marketing of the gun used in the shooting.

In 2012 20 elementary schoolers and six staff members were killed with an “AR-15 Bushmaster”

One lawyer says Remington is targeting at-risk youth with “militaristic marketing” and ads in video games.

Remington claims they can’t be sued based on a federal law.

In similar cases, the federal statute has usually protected gun manufactures from liability.
