Sandy Hook Families Will Now Be Allowed to Sue Remington

sandy_hookBy Joshua Krause

For the past two years the families of the victims who died at Sandy Hook have been seeking to satisfy their own warped sense of justice. In December of 2014 they filed a lawsuit against the Remington Arms company, because one of their AR-15 rifles was used in the mass shooting. If you’re unfamiliar with this case, you may be wondering why gun companies haven’t been sued into oblivion by countless families who have lost loved ones to various violent crimes.

The reason why has to do with what’s known as the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act. This law prevents gun manufacturers from being subjected to frivolous lawsuits, like the one Remington is currently facing. These companies can’t be held liable for the actions of their consumers, certainly no more than a car company is responsible for road rage, or an alcohol company is responsible for accidents.

The only stipulation in this law is known as “negligent entrustment.” If a gun company or gun store knowingly sells a weapon to a person who is clearly insane, intoxicated, or would obviously commit a crime, then they can be held liable for any damages that person causes. These Sandy Hook families believe that the way Remington advertised this weapon, makes them liable under the negligent entrustment clause.

Because they advertised this weapon to civilians, a weapon that is normally used by the military, who only give it to people who are properly trained and vetted to use it, they are responsible. And because they used violent video games like Call of Duty to advertise it, they are responsible. These families are basically saying that Remington’s advertising attracts violent people, or that they knowingly sold weapons to people they knew were unfit to operate them.

Of course that ignores the fact that Adam Lanza didn’t buy the gun, but actually stole it from his mother, and it ignores the fact that there are plenty of rifles purpose-built for civilians that do the same exact thing as an AR-15. It also ignore the fact that there are plenty of civilian rifles that are far more lethal than an AR-15, and that rifles are very rarely used for any crime. Anyone who actually owns and uses firearms knows that this lawsuit is absolutely ridiculous, and should be thrown out.

Unfortunately it hasn’t been thrown out. The reason why this lawsuit has been up in the air for two years, is because the courts have been trying to decide if Remington can even be legally sued in the first place. And now our court system has made a decision.

In a decision that could have huge ramifications in a country where up to 10,000 people a year lose their lives to gun violence, a judge refused a request by the manufacturer of the weapon to dismiss the lawsuit, and instead ruled that it could proceed.

Judge Barbara Bellis said the federal law protecting gun makers from lawsuits did not override the “legal sufficiency” of the claims by the Sandy Hook families that the gun used by Adam Lanza should never have been made available for sale to civilians.

You can see why this might set a dangerous precedent, right? Like I said, there are plenty of other firearms that do the same kind of damage as an AR-15 and require the same kind of training to operate safely. And in a sense, all firearms are advertised for their lethality in one way or another. If these people can sue, then where do we draw the line? Let’s hope and pray they don’t win, or it could spell the end of America’s gun industry.

    The only thing this judge has proven by letting this case go forward is their incompetence and qualification to remain on the bench. Nothing but a suicidal decision that will show its detriment to their career. I look forward to future news of this person being removed and hope it serves as notice to the rest of the corrupt officials serving in this capacity.

    • Removed ? If it causes blowback he should be given a medal but if it is another psyop he will be promoted.

  5. Nobody died…staged. Didn’t you get that memo?

  6. We’ve entered a fascist Bizarro Fantasy World where everything is played backwards in an illogical panoply of surrealistic ‘musical chairs’ of pure unbridled bullshit…nothing is real …just the same ol same ol propaganda trying to create an enslavement tool by orchestrating a pseudo /facsimile reality out of horse feathers…trying to legislate the taking of our guns (like in 1930’s Germany)…like a Wizard of Oz hypnotist, where we’re all paying the price for this Grand Illusion….. with our liberty.

      Eddy……….This is the BEST description I have read ANYWHERE of what is taking place.

      Great post! Shouldn’t they have to prove their child actually is dead first? Because I guarantee nobody died at Sandy Hook, a school that had been closed for several years.

  7. Maybe a new Republican administration can come down hard on the entire Sandy Hook hoax. Go after all the crisis actors first and especially the ones who are bringing this fraudulent lawsuit, grant them immunity to avoid prosecution, and then let see how far up the fraud extends. All the way to the White House, I suspect.

  8. This could be a golden opportunity to expose everything. But, some money will change hands and poof it goes away.Military weapon, remember. And the gun makers have contracts with your money to supply these weapons to chase all the middle east leaders away from their oil and gold. I would love to see Wolfgang Halbig at the trial. But it ain’t gonna happen.

  9. So, they will be able to sue for a weapon that apparently wasn’t use or no evidence exists for it being used on top of the piling evidence it either didn’t happen or was just a drill.
    Now that makes perfect sense

    Not only did it not happen and nobody died, there was never an Adam Lanza or his mother. Adam Lanza was a photoshopped created illusion and the mother was a crisis actor who was on film at the age she is now putting candles at the memorial sight for all the non-existent dead kids. The photo of the “never exitisted Adam Lanza Mom….was this crisis actors photos from when she was young.

    Real discovery on this one……..if it happened would be straight out of Monty Python with an LSD chaser!

    But…nobody died at Sandy Hook.

    • “Noah” died twice, second time in the Pakistan.

      • Crisis actors have nine lives – then some .
        They’ll soon have an oscars ceremony for the best crisis actor , best director and most convincing scenario ….

        • I’m surprised they haven’t started an awards show for best false flag crisis actors, would have to give one to the guy in Boston they wheeled around with the prosthetic sticks hanging from his legs that kept falling out and they would have to stop to put them back in.

  13. So now the fake Sandy Hook actors will get to make even more money – what a racket.
    The Greenburgs are sure to get their share.
    They don’t even know what fake gun they want to say was used.
    Maybe they should say that the fake gun had a fake suppressor that the fake A.Lanza fake shot.
    Maybe ask the fake teachers what fake gun was used or Emily is sure to be near her fake Utah family with her fake dad – Robbie the fake.

  14. These “families” of “dead” are going to wish they hadn’t done this. They are just BEGGING for all their lies to come up in a court of law. Remington isn’t going to lay down.

  15. HEY ACTIVIST POST!!! Do you even read your comments? I would like to continue reading your articles, but if you aren’t even listening to your readers when they remind you that Sandy Hook was a giant fake, what good are you? Read Jim Fetzer’s free book on line, “Nobody Died At Sandy Hook” and stop being clueless. You’re losing me and others.

    • Fetzer as good as it gets.

    • I think they are leaving it up to the commentators to make the case which they already know – this can stop any accusal of bias .

    • The AP is controlled opposition. Your comment and mine have been selectively sent to the bottom of the comment section out of any logical order. Do not be surprised if my comments get completely censored. It has happened on numerous occasions. You are on to the truth.

      Censorship is not indicative of any organization that desires the truth to be made known.

  16. I guess we’ll be able to sue the weapons manufacturers who’s guns police use to kill hundreds if not thousands of (innocent) people each year. Then again, maybe I’m just living in a dream world.

    If we look at Sandy Hook, there is a lack of evidence anyone was actually killed there. If this case proceeds let’s hope somebody is forced to provide proof this weapon was actually used to murder people.

  17. This might be a step too far for the hoaxers if evidence is demanded they could be hoist – so the whole case will need to be rigged if they want to add some cash to their go fund me pots .

  18. What about millions of innocent Iraqi’s , Libyans , Afghans , South Americans etc etc suing the US for murder and Obama for drone murder.

    Um>>>>>>>>>>>>>>it’s been established that Sandy Hoax never happened. Please study. It was a drill, probably not on that day are the films they showed us on TVEEEEEE.

    My son was killed by a Ford Pickup>>>>>>>>>>>>AFTER THEM!!!!!! FORD THAT IS!!!!!! ALL FORDS SHOULD BE OFF THE ROADS.

  20. That such a ruling could be made is just more evidence that faith in the Second Amendment is misplaced.

    Think about it: The Amendment WITH the wording “shall not be infringed” is the MOST infringed, licensed, and limited Amendment of the entire twenty seven. Furthermore, a future generation of our posterity is likely to see the Second Amendment whittled away entirely or repealed altogether. This is inherent nature and danger of optional Enlightenment rights versus non-optional Biblical responsibilities, such as the following:

    “Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a twoedged sword [or today’s equivalent in their hand; to execute vengeance upon the heathen, and punishments upon the people; to bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron; to execute upon them the judgment written: this honour have all his saints. Praise ye Yah.” (Psalm 149:6-9)

    “But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house [including spiritual and physical protection], he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.” (1 Timothy 5:8)

    For more, listen to “The Second Amendment: A Knife in a Gunfight,” delivered last March at the Springfield, Missouri Firearms and Freedom Symposium. Click on my picture, then our website, and scroll about half way down our home page to our Featured Messages.

    At this same location, you will also find a radio interview Larry Pratt (Executive Director of Gun Owners of America) conducted with me on this same subject. I think you’ll find Mr. Pratt’s remarks especially

  22. This takes the cake, allowing lying, scheming parents to sue a gun company for an attack that never happened, a completely 100% fraudulent, poorly orchestrated government false flag. No one died at Sandy Hook, no one was injured, just another phony false flag to try to take away our guns. The school had been closed for several years, the young man blamed for the shootings didn’t exist. There are hundreds of excellent documentaries and investigations revealing the fraud, if anyone hasn’t seen them, go check them out, they are very well done. Boston Marathon same thing, a poorly executed false flag, pretty much the same with all the shootings the last 15 years, either a mind controlled patsy used or a complete false flag fraud. Obama showed what a fraud he is and what fools he thinks the American people are when Chris Wallace interviewed him recently and he said his worst/saddest moment in office was Sandy Hook. A staged false flag that never happened, perfect answer for a total fraud himself.

    so, the supposed parents of the supposed victims of a supposed person who never existed at a school that was supposedly still open after being closed for asbestos contamination want to sue in open court? The discovery process by the defendant will be a pissah!!

  24. I don’t believe a thing about Sandy Hook. These so-called parents are just milking it for everything its worth…since they can’t play the ‘roles’ and be seen in ‘theater’, again. Too many of us know who they are..the actors.

    The “families” are suing? What a crock! What families? Names, photos and real lives of the so-called victims have been deleted from history too protect them? From what? Winning a law suit? — In Kansas they put ranch dressing on everything. In Sandy Hook they put bullshit on everything.

    Let us hope the Judge Barbara has an ulterior motive, i.e., unmasking the players and unraveling the mysteries surrounding Sandy Hook (like, what weapon was really used, actual ballistics tests, the rifle’s actual provenance, its history, its serial number, chain of evidence, print matches, spent shell casings, the sort of evidentiary material currently taken for granted by MSM–when even our POTUS claimed in a speech that a “fully automatic” firearm was used).

    Designed for military use…”a weapon that is normally used by the military”? (It’s simply a semi-automatic, one-bullet-per-trigger-pull firearm like all legal hunting rifles.) I wonder if someone wearing combat boots were to stomp a victim to death (it’s happened), could the victim’s family bring suit against the boot manufacturer? After all, they teach unarmed combat to military recruits, including how to use their feet as weapons, and what are these young military trainees wearing? Not Nikes or Reeboks. But anyone can buy combat boots in an Army surplus store. Often used bayonets and survival knives, too. And MP batons.

    Quite the precedent, this ruling sets. And what does it portend for local police forces recently endowed with MRAPs? What if they accidentally attack the wrong house? Do the victims get to sue Navistar or BAE Systems? Or would it be more appropriate to sue the DoD?

  27. This is just one more nail in the coffin for AP. Obviously they are perpetuating the Hoax in accordance with the official narrative. I can only surmise from this and many other stories that the “Activist Post is controlled opposition. Seriously, this is getting vexing to see this crap.

    Yes, Google “We Need To Talk About Sandy Hook”

    It is evident to a first grader that this entire event was a hoax and never happened, so are we to belive that Activist Post is less intelligent than a first grader??? C’mon guys….

  28. Just look at the comment section. No reasonable, critically thinking person believes the official narrative that children were actually killed at Shady Hoax, so ask yourselves…”Why does the Activist Post resort to the lie?”

    Answer: They are (what has been dubbed) “controlled opposition.” This simply means that they are attempting to guide or control the news for those of us that have discovered some of the plans that conspirators have made to subvert the freedoms and inalienable rights of the inhabitants of the earth.

    I cannot in anyway support AP. I have seen their “news” founded upon the official narrative too many times for it to be ignorance. No, they are deceiving people. Do not trust AP for the time or the day. They are liars.

  29. Pay attention people.
    Nobody died at Shady Hoax.
    Most people know this.
    The AP is censoring the truth.

    Look at the comments that I posted earlier. They will most likely become censored, because I exposed AP as being controlled opposition. Now my comments are being sent down way below, out of any order. This has happened to me many times already here and other sites where the “news” is actually being controlled by the powers that shouldn’t be. The AP is lying to people. They are not looking to publish news. They are publishing the “alternative” story that sticks with the official narrative.

  30. AP is producing lies. It is the Associated Press, Activist Post, AP. They are presenting false iformation. Do Not Trust ANYTHING YOU READ HERE.

  31. I signed up for “Disqus” a few years back when I actually thought Alex Jones was doing a “good” work exposing the evils. Turns out disqus is disqustingly controlling opposition.

  32. Maybe hey will have to show fake pics and dig up a fake grave to show how the fake kiddies and the fake teacher were shot or do you s’pose they will just take fake testimony it sure to be hocus pocus.
    They should bring up the fake Bostons marathon and the fake batman shooter and the fake news reporter and the rest of the fakes.
    Car manufacturers will be next – then bubble gum guys,then…

  33. First they have to prove that anyone was hurt or killed.

  34. Just another route to disarm the public. Taking a known hoax shooting to court. This will not end well. Be prepared.

  35. Can they also sue the school district or the state for having a gun free zone, leaving victims helpless and vulnerable?
