World News – Time to put on my tin foil hat. There are hundreds of people out there that think that Sandy Hook was orchestrated. Now a trial against the gun maker has been ruled to go forward. Was this the plan all along?
Judge Barbara Bellis ruled on Thursday that a federal law protecting gun-makers from lawsuits does not prevent lawyers for the families of Sandy Hook victims from arguing that the AR-15 semi-automatic rifle is a military weapon and should not have been sold to civilians.
A lawyer for the families had argued there is an exception in federal law that allows litigation against companies that know, or should know, that their weapons are likely to be used in a way that risks injury to others.
“We are thrilled that the gun companies’ motion to dismiss was denied. The families look forward to continuing their fight in court,” said Josh Koskoff, of Koskoff, Koskoff & Bieder, who is one of the lawyers representing the families.
Twenty children and six educators were killed in the December 2012 shooting.
The sides are due back in court Tuesday.
