Washington DC – -(Ammoland.com)- 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.
