    Why canít we somewhat agree to disagree with full knowledge that opinions on this subject are deeply entrenched/likely to not change? True for both sides of the debate.

    The two people who in my mind could be legitimately sued are both dead. I really don't see how they have a case against Remington. The firearms were used for their intended purpose, that is to fire bullets. It is up to the purchaser to follow safety rules and applicable laws, after being deemed eligible and allowed to walk out with the guns. I believe the angle that is being persued is marketing. Even that seems weak to me because the fuckstick murderer wasn't the purchaser. Ultimately, this will be settled based on emotion and not facts.

    This perspective that the gun makers can't be held responsible for what people do with them after they leave the assembly line seems reasonable maybe??. Do you take that same perspective when it comes to the makers of OxyContin?? i.e. that it's 100% of the users not following instructions and it's otherwise perfectly OK to sell heroin pills in a bottle to people as long as it comes out of a pharmacy (gun dealer) with a prescription (half ass background check)? As long as you're consistent with your stance on both it's a sound view. If you think one or the other is somehow different not so sure..

    GUNS!!!!!!!!

    If weíre blaming the marketing, then The best marketing firearms manufacturers receive, and the most irresponsible, is Hollywood.

    Ask a kid where he got his tactica-cool ideas and Iíll bet it wasnít a gun ad.

    Tough to call this a test case for average folks when the shooter was a documented mentally challenged teen.... and supposedly had an infatuation with first person shooter violent video games. It's more proof that those rating labels should also apply to mentally handicapped people..

    I am not against manufacturers of any product being held liable when it is warranted. I don't see the liability in this case. However, SCOTUS was not wrong by allowing the lawsuit to proceed.

    Ya, we should regulate those things, require insurance to have them in public places, carefully screen drivers, have a registry of who owns what VIN numbers, etc..

    I do see a potential marketing issue with the "militia" series of firearms, if marketing is the angle one wants to persue: https://franklinarmory.com/products/...series-ar-308/

    Wide spread anecdotal evidence would appear to contradict this idea.

    The denial by the USSCT may be a precursor to "let's see what happens" before taking action. It was a close vote. I suspect irrespective of what happens in the state court system the USSCT will see the case again.

    Somedays, I have faith that a competent jury makes a good decision. All will be micro-scrutinized before and after a decision. Trouble will be ferreting out a "true" impartial jury.

    I already miss the old Remington. My opinion on the whole affair is very nuanced. This isn't how they should go out. However, everybody gets their day in court.

    Remington has made a mess in their own house the last several years.

    Be that as it may this lawsuit about marketing is the worst kind of tripe. It will get knocked down as it should.

    You do not sue car manufactures because the speeder who killed the family was watching a Dodge commercial.

    Next up is suing ski manufactures over print ads that show folks skiing off cliffs when you tomahawked into next week.

    Precisely why this action will fail.

    Otherwise, marketing a Corvette or a Mustang or a Challenger to a 19 year old will result in litigation against the manufacturer.
