Oh dear, somebody found life to be traumatic. I hadn't realized the traumatized were so opportunistic. You'd think they'd be in more of a stupor. Hopefully the judge will turn this around, declare the suit frivolous and traumatize the parents with a fine.
I don't think that having your 6 year's hear blown off by being shot point blank with a BushMaster Semi-Automatic weapon to the point where their own parent's could not identify the body warrants a glib reaction like that
As far as the survivors go they have the right to sue as well
Because their children were placed in grave danger
WHY? Because a lunatic was able to get his hands on a weapon of mass destruction .......... with the COMPLETE BLESSING OF THE US GOVERNMENT
Don't think so ?
In 2005, at a high point of the NRA’s control of the national agenda on guns, Congress passed this breathtakingly broad and virtually unprecedented law. Overriding states’ power to regulate harmful conduct within their borders, the PLCAA eliminated most tort claims anyone might bring against the manufacturers and other sellers of guns, and did so for past and well as future misconduct.
Did you even read the OP's article?
This is not a lawsuit being brought by the parents of the victims. Here's who this $100,000,000 lawsuit is being brought by...
"The unidentified client
, referred to as Jill Doe, heard "cursing, screaming, and shooting" over the school intercom
when the gunman, 20-year-old Adam Lanza, opened fire, according to the claim filed by New Haven-based attorney Irv Pinsky.
"As a consequence, the ... child has sustained emotional and psychological trauma and injury
, the nature and extent of which are yet to be determined," the claim said."
Kid's got blown the fuck away. This kid heard some noise on the intercom and is suing for $100,000,000 based upon that and you are calling my response glib?
Besides that, even if it was the parents of the kids who were the victims bringing suit, I don't believe they should sue the school any more than you would sue the school for a bomb dropping on it. This gunman was a walking bomb and we don't have controls over that. There's some risk to living. This sadly was part of that risk. You wanna beef up security, that's another issue. But you don't make things better by trying to bankrupt all we have. That's nothing but greed. And to take advantage, to be greedy, under this horrific circumstance, I don't even know what is the name of that sin.
If you found me at all glib it was merely to camouflage my disgust.
