CA Supreme Court reinstates Newtown lawsuit

CNBCA divided Connecticut Supreme Court has ruled gun-maker Remington can be sued over how it marketed the Bushmaster rifle used to kill 20 children and six educators at Sandy Hook.
Justices issued a 4-3 ruling that reinstated a wrongful death lawsuit and overturned a lower-court ruling that the lawsuit was prohibited by a 2005 federal law that shields gun manufacturers from liability in most cases when their products are used in crimes.

This lawsuit pretty much blatantly violates the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms act. It's being reinstated now because the Left sees this as their last chance to get some anti-gun rulings through the court. Right now, Roberts is seen as right-leaning but wobbly on ... well, pretty much everything. There's still a chance of a 4-4 tie with Roberts as the remaining swing vote. But if Ginsburg takes her lace collar to her final destination in the next two years, Trump will probably get to appoint her replacement. If the left wants a chance at anti-gun rulings, it's now, or wait until Trump is out.

In case you've forgotten how much bullshit this lawsuit has, the Newtown killer murdered his mother in her bed to obtain the guns he used.
