'Remington's nightmare will come true': Gun control advocates savor Connecticut court victory
"So who is responsible for mass shooting in the United States? Could that list include the gun manufacturer, a court has been grappling with that question? And yesterday, the state supreme court in Connecticut ruled that families of those killed at the sandy hook elementary school in two thousand twelve they can move forward with a lawsuit against the gun manufacturer Remington one of Rimington's assault style. Firearms was used by the gunman in the massacre that happened in Newtown, Connecticut, left twenty children dead six educators as well. Ian, Haug -ly lost his six-year-old son Dylan in that attack. He is part of this lawsuit. Any spoke after the judge's decision. Came down are excited ruling. I wish it was never here. But what we've said from the outset is all we want is Dane Uncalled cool. for the low to be upheld Jerry to decide. Okay davis. Donovan is reporter for member station. W S H U and has been following this case Davis, thanks for being here. Thank you, David. So exactly what these families are are hoping to sue Remington four. How would this legal casework? Right. So they started this law suit as a wrongful death lawsuit against Remington because as he said Remington makes the bushmaster air fifteen style rifle that was used in the shooting, and what they what they're really interested in is a part of this. It's called wrongful marketing, so the family's attorneys pointed to some ads from Remington the showed the rifle with a slogan that said consider your man card re issued or adds that show alone gunman on a battlefield, and they say also Remington marketed this directly toward young people. They say the basically get product placement in in violent first person shooter video games, like call of duty. Okay. So the supreme court seemed I mean convinced by by some of the arguments here and follows a lot of battles and lower courts. It was just listening to that father there. It's how how would you ever be excited about something like this? But but are they feeling like at least there's a path forward? Now. Right yet A are. And you know, that's what they've said. Essentially is they want gun companies like Remington to be able to be held accountable. Originally, lower court struck down because of two thousand five federal law that said, you know, gun manufacturers aren't responsible aren't liable for shootings that are committed with with their guns. Another one of the parents on the lawsuit is is David Wheeler and his son. Ben Wheeler was one of the children who died in the shooting. And here's here's what he had to say. There is a reason this particular consumer product is the one that is used by people who want to inflict the most damage that reason very likely partially resides at the feet of the manufacturers in their advertising. Marketing policies, and then another family member named Bill Sherlock whose wife was a psychologist at sandy hook. He said he expects to spend the rest of his life on this avenue in in one way, shape or form. So it sounds like this case might have real implications. Not just for Remington. But but other again gun manufacturers as well. In in terms of how they they market their products to people, right? So I obviously it establishes a precedent. It opens up the possibility that gun manufacturers could be sued and other state courts after shootings. But also if and when this goes to court now attorneys can get discovery. And that means they can get Rimington's documents memos emails having to do with marketing. And then they might get a clear picture of what goes on behind the scenes at gun companies when they're deciding how to market the guns, and that's what the nine families in the one survivor involved in this lawsuit have said, they really wanna see.

"This is morning edition from NPR news. I'm David Greene in Culver City, California. And I'm Rachel Martin in Washington DC, the company that makes the semiautomatic weapon used in the sandy hook massacre may now be held legally responsible. The Connecticut supreme court ruled that families of those killed at the sandy hook elementary school in two twenty twelve can now move forward with a lawsuit against the gun maker Remington the suit claims that Rimington's marketing campaigns violated Connecticut's consumer protection law Davis. Donovan is a reporter from member station. W S H U has been following the case and joins us. Now. Davis. Can you just start by explaining the substance of this lawsuit? That was brought by sandy hook families. Right. Right. So this regionally started as a wrongful death lawsuit brought by nine families and one survivor the shooting in two thousand fourteen against Remington because Remington as you said makes the bushmaster AR fifteen style rifle when when they originally brought the lawsuit. They also actually brought. It against the gun shop to where the shooter bought the bushmaster and originally a lower court had struck this down because of a two thousand five federal law that said, you know, gun manufacturers, like Remington aren't responsible aren't liable for shootings that are committed with their guns. But what the families are most interested in is a part of this. It's called wrong for marketing. So the family's attorneys point to some ads from Remington that show the rifle with the slogan that says consider your man card re issued or ads that show a lone gunman on an empty battlefield. And they also say Remington marketed the bushmaster directly toward young people. They basically get product placement violent first-person shooter video games like call of duty. So essentially, that's that's sort of loophole, right? Because the the so-called shield laws that protect the gun manufacturers. Those are quite strict. Right, right. Yes. And Remington argument has largely been that they're protected under these laws. How are the families reacting to this? Well, the they've largely said what they want is for companies like Remington to be held accountable. They've said that you know, they want to have their day in court. David Wheeler is one of the parents on the lawsuit his his son. Ben Wheeler was one of the children who died in the shooting. And here's what he had to say. There is a reason this particular consumer product is the one that is used by people who want to inflict the most damage that reason very likely partially resides at the feet of the manufacturers in their advertising marketing policies, and then another family member named Bill Sherlock whose wife was a school psychologist at sandy hook. He said he expects to spend the rest of his life on this in one way, shape or form. And he says right now that means he wants to see what went on inside Remington with their marketing so clearly Remington disagrees with that. They don't believe that because they make this weapon that they're to be held responsible. But have they been given have they given any specific response to the judge's ruling. Right. They didn't have much to say yesterday beyond that they had no comment. They said they'll have no comment for the foreseeable future. They've largely stuck to their position that they're protected under the law. You can look at the reaction from some of the gun from some firearm trade groups, and you can kind of see what the reaction from the industry has been NRA TV, basically said this could lead to more lawsuits, that's the media wing of the IRA. And that for that reason, they didn't like it. And then there's a group called the national shooting sports foundation. Which is a major firearms trade group, factually based in Newtown, Connecticut, and they said, they think this is an overly broad decision that could set a dangerous precedent. But just briefly I mean, could it are there other lawsuits that could arise as a result of this? Ruling it could it opens up the possibility of gun manufacturers could be sued and other state courts after the shooting. So this is now getting sent back to Connecticut state court. So this sort of. Says that the federal law doesn't apply in state courts. And it also gives attorneys the opportunity to get Remington documents like memo's communications emails having to do with marketing. And then they might be able to see what was going on behind the scenes when these guns are being marketed Davis. Donovan a with W S H you thanks so much. You're welcome..
