I’m guessing that the next stop is the US court of appeals or the Supreme Court.
Does Ford or Chevrolet or BMW or Dodge get sued when a person driving a perfectly good car kills someone by hitting them?
Cause it makes just about as much sense.
What if someone uses a Louisville Slugger? Or a Gillette razor?
Hope the USSC rules on this and stops this crap.
If this lawsuit were to proceed and win, the entire world of capitalism is on the hook for every bad thing that ever happened, at least in the last few hundred years.
Those plaintiffs are going to learn a hard and expensive lesson when the suit fails.

What happens when a hollywood movie depicting criminal use of a firearm causes a mentally unstable person to kill using a firearm? Hollywood is promoting criminal use of firearms no firearms manufacturer intends in ant way.
“The regulation of advertising that threatens the publics health, safety, and morals...”
I must have missed that Remington ad that their rifle was the best for school shootings by the mentally ill.
a totally unconstitutional and illegal ruling
that will just be overturned anyway
what matters is not this POS ruling,

Discovery should be interesting. Get all the info on the “parents” and “victims” and the fact that the school seems to have been unused for 4 years prior to the shooting. Depose the medical examiner.
