DC – COURTS – Firearms industry: Supreme Court’s skip of Sandy Hook gun case presages litigation onslaught

THE FIREARMS INDUSTRY IS ON THE VERGE ON A POTENTIALLY CRUSHING WAVE OF LITIGATION FROM THE VICTIMS OF GUN VIOLENCE. THAT PREDICTION COMES NOT FROM GUN CONTROL ADVOCATES BUT FROM THE FIREARMS INDUSTRY, GUN OWNERS, THE NATIONAL RIFLE ASSOCIATION AND STATES THAT STRONGLY BACK GUN RIGHTS. ALL OF THEM FILED AMICUS BRIEFS AT THE U.S. SUPREME COURT IN REMINGTON ARMS V. SOTO – AND ALL OF THEM WARNED THAT IF THE JUSTICES DID NOT GRANT REMINGTON’S PETITION FOR REVIEW OF A 2019 RULING BY THE CONNECTICUT SUPREME COURT IN A LANDMARK GUN LIABILITY CASE, THE ENTIRE INDUSTRY COULD BE AT RISK.

NAT’L – OPINION – The DX-12 Punisher: A Shotgun Pistol That Should Never Be Built

Key point: While the DX-12 Punisher shotgun concept may appear aesthetically pleasing, practically every aspect of its design has been done better by existing shotguns on the market today.
