    It looks like you’re writing unsubstantiated nonsense. Would you like to turn on all caps?

    Supreme Court allows Sandy Hook families to sue Remington:

    I'm going to fucking puke.... What the hell??? Guess we should allow suits against alcohol and car companies for drunk driving deaths now.

    AHHHHH

    The lawsuit from the parents of the victims are suing Remington for "knowingly marketed and promoted the Bushmaster XM15-E2S rifle for use in assaults against human beings.", not just for the death of their family members. The comparison you posed is a bit inaccurate.

    This, in my opinion, is completely in line with what we do consistently. We hold the alcohol industry accountable for marketing to youth knowingly. We hold tobacco companies accountable for the same thing. Most recently, the Trump administration has been working on an e-cigarette ban and Juul has ran into alot of trouble for marketing to kids. This lawsuit is much in the same vain as the aforementioned. These guns companies have very questionable marketing tactics and lobbying and this lawsuit is just a way to address that.

    I for one, while not anti-gun, would not mind seeing these companies along with all other corps involved in the military-industrial complex dismantled.

    They are arguing that remington marketted the guns as human killing devices and not just a gun. thats why they won. it isnt some dumb lawsuit democratic ploy to undermine the second amendment or ban guns, their children got murdered viciously and remington purposefully advertised their guns as HUMAN killing machines, and thats what they used as foundation for suit. you dont see budweiser advertising beer as a human killing machine or drunk driving device lol

    Very interested in seeing what will be ruled. It's kind of hard to prove that it was marketed as a human killing machine since this isn't as simple of a case as the Juul flavours. This could really affect the gun business if the punishment is severe.

    Agreed. Kinda interesting that guns...which are human killing machines...are being advertised...as human killing machines.
