Several families of victims who died and a lone survivor from Sandy Hook Elementary recently filed a wrongful-death lawsuit against a gun maker of the rifle that was used in the massacre.
It was a couple years back when Adam Lanza murdered 20 children and 6 staff members in school through the use of the Bushmaster Model XM15-E2S rifle, bought by Lanza’s mother.
The suit names the defendants as Bushmaster Firearms International LLC, owned by Remington Outdoor Co.; Camfour, a firm responsible for distributing products from Bushmaster; and Riverview Gun Sales, a gun shop that sold the weapon Lanza’s mother.
Joshua Koskoff, the attorney representing the families, indicated there’s plenty of evidence of the civilian world not being capable of controlling weapons. He believes to no longer trust them for such purpose.
The suit came in light of an exception from the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act, which protects guns from gun makers from a majority of suits.
