Washington DC – -(  On December 15 2014, a number of parents of the victims of the heinous attack on Sandy Hook Elementary will join with Democrat lobbyist Karen Hinton in announcing a class action lawsuit against Bushmaster, the manufacturer of the AR-15 rifle Adam Lanza stole and used in his attack.

According to The Guardian, Hinton will “promote the action.” She formerly worked for the Democrat National Committee, is “a close ally of Andrew Cuomo,” and was Bill Clinton's housing secretary in the 1990s. The parents are also working with Michael Koskoff, “an attorney who represented Michael Jackson's family in a $1.5 billion wrongful death lawsuit against his international concert promoter.”

The Daily Mail reports that Sandy Hook parents also plan to take action against the estate of Adam Lanza's mother, which is worth an estimated “$64,000.”

On December 12, I reported that the suit against Bushmaster will be an uphill battle because of the Protection in Lawful Commerce of Arms Act, signed by President George W. Bush in 2005. That act shields gun makers from lawsuits over the unlawful use of their products.

    1. If the ‘Progressives’ succeed in using Adam Lanza’s crime in an effort to ‘bend the law’ to achieve the outcome they want, we’re all in trouble. ‘Progressives’ also seem intent on voiding the ‘Statute of Limitations’. Dare I say their ‘poster boy’ for this effort is Bill Cosby?

    2. the irony is thick in this case considering the parents of Adam Lanza were both Liberal Democrats before the sandy hook tragedy. Now that the dust has settled, if anybody has heard the mortage forgivness on Christmas day to several Sandy Hook community democratic leaders. Might through a monkey wrench in the works for a lawsuit concerning bushmaster, which by the way is ridiculous anyway.

    3. Blaming a manufacturer for a stolen item used to commit murder. Does this mean I sue GM , Ford , Gas stations, oil companies for damages done to me by a drunk driver? Same logic , same answer no . Yes it still hurts 31 years after being hit by a drunk driver . People still drive drunk , yup , still kill more people than firearms.
      Focus on the real isssue he was crazy enough to kill his own mother.

    4. Not only an uphill battle because of the PLCA Act, but because Bushmaster is now owned by the Freedom Group correct?
