I know the families are hurtimg, and I know that horrible tragedy shouldn't have happened, but this is just rediculous. If he'd used a hammer would they be suing Stanley? This is a waste of time, money, and public resources. I can't wait for the cries of rage when Bushmaster wins and countersues for damages.

edited to add: I know it sounds course, but from what little I understand, all Bushmaster has to prove is that the weapon did not malfunction and that it left the factory as a legal sale. Beyond that, they can wash their hands and feet of the situation.

Looks like Bushmaster could say that weapons of that design, used by the military, are fully automatic machine guns.

Why would they say that? And...they're not. So it could have been much worse? Yeah, they're gonna' lead with that. Help me undertand?

Complete and utter Liberal hogwash, in my humble opinion.

the lawsuit argues "It argues that the legally purchased AR-15 used by Adam Lanza in the attack should never have been sold because it had no reasonable civilian purpose."

hammer

Are we talking about an AR15? That is a joke--I dont know how many pigs and coyotes I have shot with mine. It is my normal rifle to carry at the lease--when it is not deer season.

Yeah, but we shouldn't be shooting little animals anyway. According to one thread on here, it "makes them sad." roflmao

Soooo...applying that logic, I'm not a carpenter (far from it, in fact I suck at carpentry), so I can't have a hammer and a bag of nails? As a matter of fact, someone really should take these from me.

Let's say that the liberals win this one. What is next, a DWI wreck where someone is injured or killed and they sue Budweiser (or who ever) for the alcohol, the vehicle manufacturer for not making it drunk proof, the satiation that sold the gas. Where does it stop.

If Bushmaster counter sues it will not speak well of any compassion of the gun industry and owners.
