The maker of an AR-15 is being sued... for making an AR-15. Hrmmm.... do you know how many companies make AR-15s now? I'm sure that when the rifle in question was made, there were dozens of companies making their own version of an AR-15. Will those companies be held liable for making an AR-15? I think not.

You might as well go after the manufacturer of the ammunition, or hell... the gun powder that was used in that ammunition, why the **** not go after the company that provides the brass that made the casings for the the ammo. Don't forget to sue the primer manufacturer either.

The suit alleged that design flaws caused her husband's death. The judge decided a roll cage or racing fuel cell would not have prevented Roger Rodas' death from blunt force trauma and found that Rodas had not presented sufficient evidence to prove that alleged design flaws with the Carrera GT caused her husband's death. The suit was dismissed.
So hang on; you bring up a suit against Porsche, citing Paul Walker, but you expect me (and any other reader) to know that you actually meant the suit the driver's wife brought against Porsche?

Pass the pipe man, must be some good stuff.

In closing, we are both correct, however to maintain you being the superior intellectual, you had to come in with some back door facts that your original post made 0 mention of, and alluded to the suit brought by Walker's family. Either way, tragic accident

PS: I am of the opinion that a judge, who has studied law and probably not physics or mechanical engineering is a pretty poor decision maker as to what would or would not have happened if standard safety equipment had been in place at the time of the accident. If a safety cell or cage were of no benefit, why are they essentially mandatory for vehicles in competition use? Some caveats, yes, but for the most part sanctioning bodies do not allow cars over a certain performance metric to compete without safety equipment in place. *shrug*

Remember folks, it's not the gun that kills people, it's the bullets.

They should sue this guy.

He is the designer most associated with developing the AR-15, oops too bad he died in 1997.

I have a feeling this suit will ultimately be thrown out - at least I hope so.

It sounds odd that one could make a perfectly legal weapon, sell it to a legal distributor, and then be held liable for what it might do. Given that, I was curious what the grounds of the suit were, and it seems to be an even stranger concept.

Justice Richard Palmer, writing for the 43 majority, reversed that ruling Thursday, finding that the plaintiffs, which include nine victims’ families and one survivor, should be given the opportunity to demonstrate that Remington violated the law by marketing the AR-15 specifically to young people...

...“The families’ goal has always been to shed light on Remington’s calculated and profit-driven strategy to expand the AR-15 market and court high-risk users, all at the expense of Americans’ safety,” Koskoff said Thursday. “Today’s decision is a critical step toward achieving that goal.”

Talk about a mine field in the making if that strategy works.

Yes. So the manufacturer is responsible.


Like I said. Federal courts will kill it.

Complete BS if it did go through, do you know how many lawsuits would be filed after that for beer makers, farmers and car makers?
Beer makers have a responsibility for drunk drivers, car makers have a responsibility because they drove drunk and farmers because they grew the food that made me fat.

I've seen this movie before. Remember thinking it was way too long and no real payoff.

That Rachel Weisz though!

Under no circumstances sell that gun, a well known 4 letter agency will frown very heavily on that!
