Gunmaker Remington Arms Co. has offered around $33 million to settle a lawsuit brought by nine families of the victims of the Sandy Hook massacre.

Remington Arms Co. LLC and Remington Outdoors Co. Inc., collectively referred to as "Remington," offered $3.66 million to each of the nine plaintiffs in the lawsuit against them over the 2012 Newtown, Conn., mass shooting, which left 20 children and six adults dead.

Adam Lanza, 20, used Remington's Bushmaster XM-15 to carry out the elementary school massacre before killing himself.

Lawyers for the families said they will "consider their next steps," in response to this offer.

A federal law protects gun manufacturers from wrongful death lawsuits brought forth by family members, but in their 2014 lawsuit, the families of the Sandy Hook victims instead sought to hold Remington responsible for marketing practices that praised the militaristic qualities of their rifles, potentially in violation of Connecticut law.

Remington, the oldest gun manufacturer in the U.S., had appealed to the Supreme Court in 2019 to reverse a decision by the Connecticut Supreme Court to allow the case to go to trial, but the court declined to take it up.

WHO leader issues warning on 'harmful' e-cigarettes
“The regulation of advertising that threatens the public’s health, safety, and morals has long been considered a core exercise of the states’ police powers,” Connecticut Supreme Court Justice Richard Palmer wrote in the majority opinion in 2019.

Last year, Remington filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy for the second time in two years.

Earlier this month, the lawyers representing the nine families said Remington had given them a strange collection of tens of thousands of cartoons, video files and GIFS in documents turned over to them. According to court documents the cartoons depicted “people go-karting riding dirt bikes, and socializing."

Dont like the settlement offer but I can understand it. Chances are good any jury up there could have a lot of gun grabber twats on it that would love to make some headlines on CNN with a gazillion dollar verdict.

The woman that produced the egg that that braindead f~cktard was hatched from was the lowest common denominator in this equation, if that genetic link had never occurred, then the world would have been a better place.

Its had to believe that anyone so dumb could even feed a child after the titty milk dried up, let alone pass a back ground check to even buy a gun !

Would be more correct to sue the dumbass parents and school officials who didn't notice this psycho for almost 20 years.

Id go fuggin broke fighting it

Big Green didnt pull the trigger.

That damn woman should have not kept guns around, let alone let her kid shoot, if he was not of sound mind.

However, by settling out of court there is no legal ruling against Remington.

But theyve opened the door IMHO for extortion by others.

This is how they will confiscate our guns. Lawsuits that claim the gun manufacturer had unfair advertisements, and they settle for millions and drive the gun maker out of business.

And this is who will confiscate our guns. This picture is included with this original story on AP:

[Linked Image from i.imgur.com]
FILE - In this Jan. 28, 2013, file photo, firearms training unit Detective Barbara J. Mattson, of the Connecticut State Police, holds up a Bushmaster AR-15 rifle, the same make and model of gun used by Adam Lanza in the Sandy Hook School shooting, for a demonstration during a hearing of a legislative subcommittee reviewing gun laws, at the Legislative Office Building in Hartford, Conn. (AP Photo/Jessica Hill, File)


Here she is. Detective Mattson of the State Patrol, holding the demonic rifle that killed the kids at Sandy Hook. A chubby 55 year old Lesbo with titties sagging down to her gun belt. If the Governor gives the orders she will be glad to confiscate your guns. She looks like a real warrior it makes the citizens feel safe to know that she is on duty. Probably knocking down $110K a year.

He didn't buy the weapon, so their marketing didn't work on him. His mother bought it and he killed her and took it.

So if a terrorist drives a Chevy into a crowd, killing twenty, the families of the dead can demand millions from Chevrolet? How stupid of Remington.


No man escapes
When freedom fails,
The best men rot in filthy jails;
And they who cried: “Appease, Appease!”
Are hanged by men they tried to please.

that seems like a huge f'ing mistake, especially for a company in bankruptcy

you gotta go to court on this during a time when the AR-15 is the most popular gun sold.

Of course the risk is the plaintiff showing bodies of young children shot to a runaway jury, but you are just asking for every gun shot victim to go after you

Maybe the entire point of buying the company was so they could establish this precedent.
