Newtown Shootings

Victim’s families file lawsuits

15 Dec, 2014

The families of nine of the people killed in the Newtown shootings file a negligence and wrongful death lawsuit against the manufacturer, distributor and seller of the Bushmaster AR-15 rifle used in the shooting. The suit claims that the weapon is meant for military use and should not have been available for public purchase. Attorney Josh Koskoff:

The AR-15 was specifically engineered for the United States Military to meet the needs of changing warfare. In fact, one of the Army’s specifications for the AR-15 was that it has the capability to penetrate a steel helmet.
