Statement from President Joe Biden on Sandy Hook Settlement (261 hits)


Today, the families of nine victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School Shooting have secured a historic settlement with the gun manufacturer Remington. While this settlement does not erase the pain of that tragic day, it does begin the necessary work of holding gun manufacturers accountable for manufacturing weapons of war and irresponsibly marketing these firearms.

This progress is the result of the perseverance of nine families who turned tragedy into purpose. They have demonstrated that state and city consumer protection laws – like Connecticut’s Unfair Trade Practices Act – provide an opportunity to hold gun manufacturers and dealers accountable for wrongdoing despite the persistence of the federal immunity shield for these companies.

As I have repeatedly called for, Congress must repeal the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act so we can fully hold gun manufacturers and dealers accountable. But, in the meantime, I will continue to urge state and local lawmakers, lawyers, and survivors of gun violence to pursue efforts to replicate the success of the Sandy Hook families. Together, we can deliver a clear message to gun manufacturers and dealers: they must either change their business models to be part of the solution for the gun violence epidemic, or they will bear the financial cost of their complicity.

Sandy Hook should not have ever happened but sadly, it did. This is a great first step. I found one thing about your report is, it doesn't tell the reader which is a very important point: "How much was the historic settlement.

Follow-up: "Remington agreed to pay the nine Sandy Hook families $73 million as part of a settlement announced Tuesday, more than seven years after the families sued the maker of the Bushmaster XM15-E2S semiautomatic rifle that was used in the mass shooting."

The amount of the settlement is not the remarkable part Ron. Americans have an inviolate Second Amendment RIGHT to manufacture and market ARMS.

The fact that Remington agreed to pay the nine Sandy Hook families $73 million as part of a settlement announced Tuesday, is the point because they fought for years not to pay that settlement but it was the way Remington was sued was the game-changer, The nine Sandy Hook families sued Remington by way of their advertisement, that has never been done before.

YOUR WORDS: How much should deaCON gunInsurance BE?

MY REPLY: Should gun owners have to buy insurance?

The use of deadly force can also come with it incredibly expensive, time-consuming legal consequences – even if you never fired a shot. All of this is why smart gun owners often look to protect themselves in the form of concealed carry insurance– just in case.

Why You Need Concealed Carry Insurance. Concealed carry insurance, also known as CCW or firearm liability insurance, is a form of low-cost coverage that provides legal protection if you use your registered firearm in a self-defense situation. As more people carry firearms to keep themselves and their families safe, an increasing number of gun owners are considering the purchase of this insurance.

Mr. Robert Powell, if you have a gun. The insurance policy offered to current members of the NRA covers, “firearms, airguns, bows and arrows against theft, accidental loss and damage” up to $2,500. Insuring Larger Collections. For some gun owners, the included NRA insurance may provide adequate coverage. You can purchase additional coverage under the NRA plan for $17.40 per $1000 in coverage.

By the way Mr. Robert Powell, how many people did you tell about Black In America just in the last two days, di you encourage anyone to come to our website?

Steve, please excuse Mr. Robert Powell because his programing will not let him to break free from the excrement he is sitting in, as we speak, today. Instead of following the subject of this blog, to talk about his obsession and extremely limited topic and that topic is me Setting the back door to his insanity.

Please excuse poor Robert, because he knows that he is full of it and he wants to use your blog as a jumping off point to his excessive problem of ignorance and that’s all he got.

Wow!
