Tom Gresham, host of the Gun Talk radio program, heard Sundays from 1 til 4 on 101.7 / 710 KEEL, talks with Robert J Wright and Erin McCarty about the Connecticut Supreme decision saying that victims of gun crimes can sue gun manufacturers.

More details on the ruling, which Gresham says is part of a larger plan to put gun makers out of business, from

"The Connecticut Supreme Court ruled 4-3 that the suit against the manufacturer of the stolen AR-15 used in the Sandy Hook shooting can proceed.'

"The attacker in the December 14, 2012, shooting took the Bushmaster rifle from his mother, killed her, then took the AR-15 and other stolen guns to school and killed 26 others.'

"The suit is against Remington, which is the parent company of Bushmaster, and it was filed in October 2014. It was dismissed two years later, in October 2016, by Connecticut Superior Court Judge Barbara Bellis.'

"Bellis dismissed the case in light of the 2005 Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA), which protects gun manufacturers from being sued in instances where the gun in question was legally made and sold. The Bushmaster was legally made and sold to Nancy Lanza, prior to it being stolen and used in a crime.'

"The case went to the Connecticut Supreme Court on appeal, and that court ruled that PLCAA does not shield Remington in this particular instance."
