Why was this a surprise? If someone wants to sue Remington why should they not be able to? It has been happening for decades in Aviation. Its also idiotic to think the manufacturer of a product is liable for someone mis-using that product in a criminal manner.
Has anyone successfully sued GM for being hit by a drunk driver?
Has Home Depot been sued for that terrorist in NYC that ran people over with their rental truck?
What complete idiocy.
We finally agree on something.
This sets a horrible precedent, not even just for firearms manufacturers but as some of you already pointed out, a number of industries. I mean, being held responsible for third party sellers? Let me get this straight: Remington sells this firearm to a gun store, the gun store has the NICS check done, sells it legally to someone, that someone's son takes the gun without permission and shoots a ton of people. So they are trying to create blame a number of levels backwards? Can I sue Yuengling and Chevy if I drink too much at the bar and crash? Can I sue Boeing if a pilot screws up a land and bounces too hard, causing injury? If I take the bus somewhere and the driver decides to run a red light to save time, then crashes, can I sue Greyhound?
It's insane how horrible this will go. I feel for these people. I really do. No one should have to suffer the death of a child from some psycho who shoots up a school. But Remington is so far down on the list of who could be blamed, it's senseless.
Low end Lenovo’s are good. Get a one Or two year old refurb laptop that runs Windows 10. It should have 8 GB of ram. CPU at that price range is irrelevant. I don’t have a specific recommendation. But a good refurb will get you more laptop for you money.
