NRA Exposed: Sandy Hook families win a big court case

Children with protest shirt on.

On Thursday, 3/15, the Connecticut Supreme Court ruled in favor of a law suit brought on by the families of the children killed in the Sandy Hook mass shooting. The suit against Remington Arms Company may offer a path, similar to the success against the tobacco industry, to subpoena internal documents from gun companies. The gun manufactures have always enjoyed complete immunity from prosecutions.

U.S. Sen. Richard Blumenthal called the decision “a ‘wow’ moment in American legal history.”

Blumenthal predicted the Sandy Hook case could have a similar outcome to the 46-state lawsuit he helped lead as Connecticut attorney general against the tobacco industry. Damaging revelations about cigarette companies learned during the discovery phase of the case helped drive a $246 billion settlement.
