BREAKING: Sandy Hook Families Offered $33 Million by Former Remington Arms Insurers

BREAKING: Sandy Hook Families Offered  Million by Former Remington Arms Insurers
The families have not said whether they plan to accept the deal.

The insurance companies handling the bankruptcy of the former Remington Arms Company made a $33 million bid this week to escape a specious lawsuit leveled by families of Sandy Hook victims.

Remington’s proposed settlement would provide $3.66 million to relatives of each of the nine victims in the lawsuit, according to Reuters. Even if the families take the offer, any settlement in the case must first be approved by the judge overseeing Remington’s bankruptcy case in Alabama.

Big Green has been fighting this lawsuit for years. Families of nine of the victims of the 2012 massacre brought the case shortly after the incident, but the Connecticut Supreme Court did not rule until 2019 that Remington could not be held liable for selling its AR-type Bushmaster rifle the murderer used to kill 20 children and six adults.

However, the court allowed the case to move forward based on Remington’s supposed “unethical and irresponsible marketing practices.” Remington should have known its “militaristic” marketing would appeal to someone like the Sandy Hook murderer, and they should have known a person like that would commit horrible atrocities.

In November of 2019, the U.S. Supreme Court allowed the lawsuit to proceed when it turned down hearing the case. The justices did not offer a justification for their denial of certiorari.

It’s important to remember that the Remington Arms involved in this settlement is not the same entity as the Remington Arms that exists today (or any of the other brands that were sold in the 2020 bankruptcy auction). This settlement is being negotiated by the insurance carriers of the old Remington Arms, which are obligated to defend and indemnify the bankruptcy estate, according to Mark Oliva of the National Shooting Sports Foundation.

“The new Remington Arms that purchased certain assets during the bankruptcy sale opened an entirely new business and have opened and continuing to increase capacity at the old Remington factory in Ilion, N.Y,” Oliva said.

Sandy Hook families have not indicated whether they plan to take Big Green’s deal, but they have not rejected it. Lawyers for the families say their clients are “considering next steps,” even though they claimed in February that their wrongful death claims could exceed $1 billion in damages.

Remington’s settlement proposal will likely concern other gun manufacturers. Congress passed the 2005 Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act to shield firearm makers from precisely this type of frivolous lawsuit. In the 1990s and early 2000s, anti-gun organizations were attempting to run the gun industry out of business by launching hundreds of frivolous lawsuits they knew would never succeed.

The success of these Sandy Hook families could encourage other anti-gun organizations to launch similar lawsuits on similar grounds. In fact, that process has already begun. The Brady Campaign sued Smith & Wesson this year for their “irresponsible” marketing practices, and a judge in California allowed the case to proceed.

This week, Everytown announced a $3 million war chest to help fund these types of lawsuits.

    This is such BULLSHIT, This is like suing a car manufacturer because of drunk driver killed somebody in the car that they manufacture

  • Nicholas August 1, 2021, 11:19 am

    There is nothing I like more than wasting my time commenting on an issue that neither side will be honest about. The one side wants to disarm the people in the face of what history tells us, and what the law commands. The other will do everything in its power to present a losing defense of its rights and duties.
    Yes, I said duties because the U.S. Constitution, laws, both federal and state command that we maintain an organized, armed, and disciplined body composed of able-bodied men capable of bearing arms for the purpose of fulfilling the duties enumerated in the Constitution.
    When the Constitution reads “to execute the Laws of the Union”, it does not mean “to execute” acts that are contrary to our rule of law, but to also countermand and prevent those acts from being enforced by rogue public officials such as the ATF. Simply put, in this particular subject, the congress has a specific delegated authority “To provide for organizing, arming, and disciplining”, which means it can do no other, as in unorganizing or disarming. I’m not quite sure as to why this is so difficult for people who claim to be supporters of the RKBA. I know why lawyers who take these cases are unwilling to use the law. There is no money in actually putting an end to gun control and preventing public officials from disarming the people. In addition, most lawyers are ignorant of the law, and on top of that they want nothing to do with bucking the system.
    In any case, here is an article, speaking of treason as it relates to this subject. Who will take the time to read it and put the lightbulb on?

  • Kenneth July 31, 2021, 10:24 pm

    To Jordan Michaels: What is “frivolous” about the subject lawsuit? Do you have legal expertise and personal experience that qualifies you to characterize the strength or basis for the legal action brought by the families of the victims?

    Thanks for your articles.

    • Give Me Liberty August 2, 2021, 8:23 pm

      What is “frivolous” about the lawsuit? Can you sue Ford if someone runs over you on purpose with one of their trucks? Can you sue Craftsman if someone attacked you with one of their hammers? Can you sue Cutco if a person stabbed you on purpose with one of their knives? Can you sue Amazon if someone bought a pet rock off their website and bashed one of your kid’s heads in with it?

      Answer all those questions and then tell me about this frivolous lawsuit.

    • Pete March 8, 2024, 10:27 am

      What’s frivolous about the lawsuits?

      How about the fact that forensics done on the AR-15 failed to find any fingerprints belonging to the alleged shooter, Adam Lanza, on any part of the gun but did find two sets of fingerprints from unidentified individuals? Apparently, nobody (other than myself) bothered to read the forensics reports that were part of the evidence collected by the Connecticut crime labs.

      There were a lot of people who did thorough analyses of the shooting and found more holes in the evidence than a pound of Swiss cheese. They were all branded as conspiracy mongers despite failing to explain any of the eyewitness accounts that cast doubt on the official narrative, like the two men seen running away from SHES after the shooting had stopped or the changing number and type of firearms reportedly found in Lanza’s car and around his body. One easily debunked lie by the Media was their publishing of a single photo of Lanza that looked nothing like the school photos of him. Even a novice could see that the Media posted an obvious fabrication. The Media would do something similar with publishing a photo of Trayvon Martin that looked like he was 12 instead of 17 years old.

  • Damon W Burch July 31, 2021, 2:30 pm

    The problem with the logic allowing the case to proceed (the marketing of a military style weapon appealed to the killer) is that he didn’t buy the gun. His Mom owned the gun. If I remember correctly he killed her and stole it from her, so it doesn’t matter how the gun was marketed if he wasn’t an actual customer.

  • Easy Eddie July 31, 2021, 11:20 am

    The anti-gun crowd has access to a nearly unlimited amount of cash to give to their attorneys for this, and other similar, litigation. Their overarching strategy is the age-old ‘Death of a Thousand Cuts’. It a two-fold strategy; ramp up negative publicity for the gun manufacturers and convince (program) the legions of the brain-dead to believe a – guns are evil, and b – gun companies are merchants of death. Statistically perhaps half our population believes this. Second, bleed the insurance industry to the point where they will no longer write GL coverage for these manufacturers. Contrary to what the left constantly says, profit margins for most insurers are quite low. They can only bleed so much before exiting the market. Without insurance, the companies cease to operate.

    These people are American Marxists. You cannot take over America without getting rid of the private firearms especially the long guns. If they can bankrupt the firearm industry they will greatly reduce the firearms in America. They can also just sue every person who dares use a firearm to resist.

    Everytown for Gun Safety announced they have $3 million in funds to help these diabolical types of freedom destroying lawsuits. This is a very large mistake for Remington to open this door by giving this large offer out. If lawsuits like this go forward the firearms manufacturers could be bankrupted eventually.

    Hopefully if any more of these lawsuits go forward the Courts will take the case and knock down these corrupt lawsuits funded by American Marxists.

      Truer words were never spoken.

    Manufacturer Is Not Liable. It’s the Idiot that pulled the trigger.

  • Richard Lockwood July 30, 2021, 5:52 pm

    So now idiot judges are saying it’s the guns killing people not some deranged person doing the shooting,if that the case then car accidents are not the blame of the driver it’s the cars fault.Any judge that allows these cases to go through should be disbarred

  • Andrew July 30, 2021, 4:15 pm

    The crooked lawyer and judge knew how much they could make in this case. So they made them pay for the damages although they was not liable! They’re in Hillary’s pocket!

  • Dano July 30, 2021, 4:02 pm

    so what would any of you do if your 6 year old was gunned down in school? The issue is how the gun was marketed. If you target unstable rambo wannabes you should be held responsible for the outcome.

    • J.D. August 1, 2021, 8:43 am

      You, sir, are a specimen of the utmost intelligence! Why didn’t I see it before? Suddenly, it all makes sense! Indeed, it is truly the inanimate object that has caused this problem. And the advertisement agencies have brainwashed all these people to do their evil bidding! All along, I was thinking it was the little criminal minds that were to blame! What was I thinking?!!

  • Leonardo Cannone July 30, 2021, 2:57 pm

    What a bunch of rubbish! Some attorneys are getting fat playing off the peoples emotions. Disgraceful!

  • Stephen July 30, 2021, 2:49 pm

    Excuse me but:

    I don’t see why Remington should have to pay a dime! Remington has no control over the intent of the buyer. Liberals in the judicial system don’t have the stones to prosecute criminals, so they go after the manufacturer, which is abject stupidity! All of these places where gun crime is a problem, who is in charge of them? Liberal politicians! Why don’t the people go after the root of the problem, which is the liberal politicians for being stupid!

  • Robert Adams July 30, 2021, 2:07 pm

    No, it is a good analogy. The father of the “Waffle house shooter” should be slowly beaten to death. Returned firearms to his precious little shit bag son after police confiscated them TWICE. Stake them out in desert to die slowly together. This crap is a consequence of the removal of corporal punishment in schools. NO CONSEQUENCES= NO DETERRENT.
    There is no argument, don’t even try. We are raising a nation of assholes and our current president is a national embarrassment.

    • Rattlerjake July 31, 2021, 5:31 am

      Absolutely! But it will not get any better. We, as a nation, have let our forefathers and ourselves down by allowing this country to be taken over by the same tyranny they fought against.

  • Jim July 30, 2021, 1:55 pm

    This is just so WRONG! A company and it’s EMPLOYEES have been forced out of business by something that was NOT their fault nor did they really have anything to do with it. It would be like Ford Motor Co, being sued because someone in a Ford Expedition intentionally ran over a group of kids for whatever reason and the parent sues FM Co. and essentially bankrupts them and put their employees out of their jobs. Why? What did they do other than make an item that is legal to make, own, and possess! I feel for the parents but is WAS NOT the fault of Remington arms!

  • Aquaman July 30, 2021, 1:29 pm

  • Richard Crotzer July 30, 2021, 12:29 pm

    I don’t think this is very logic at all. A piece of crap takes a gun and shoots and kills children, tragic very sad indeed, but why is the gun manufacturer responsible for the gunman’s actions? have any car manufacturer ever been sued over a car running over people in a crowd or on a street? just a ploy to attack the second amendment and gun ownership in my op[inion.

  • Mac McDonald July 30, 2021, 11:52 am

    Total rubbish…! Like saying certain car mfgrs should know that someday, somewhere, some crazy will buy a car and use it to drive it into a crowd of pedestrians…or maybe a school…as some cars are marketed/portrayed in advertisements to go beyond legal limits of speed and normal laws of operation, etc., so their cars/sales should be banned…or a myriad other similar scenarios.

  • db July 30, 2021, 11:49 am

    This lawsuit is wrong in every way possible. Remington should not be liable for a single penny. This sets precedence for all cases going forward.

    • Rattlerjake July 31, 2021, 5:35 am

      If you ever wonder why car, house, business, and other insurances are so high, it’s because the insurance companies would rather just settle than fight – it’s easier and cheaper for them in the long run. They could care less about right or wrong!

  • Jim Hovater July 30, 2021, 11:41 am

    Pay? Why? When news footage FIRST AIRED, it showed the AR-15 BEING REMOVED FROM THE TRUNK OF THE CAR by police.

  • Chuck Bennett July 30, 2021, 11:40 am

    Based on the arguments to allow these frivolous lawsuits to go forward the news media should be held liable for encouraging other would be murderers to commit the same atrocities by their sensationalism of first crime . All of these talking heads can tell you about the crime with a gleam in their eyes knowing full well it will generate more of the same . They have learned by experience enough unstable individuals are encouraged by the over reporting of crimes like this to act out by the news medias over zealous reporting .

    Stop All Food & Fuel to the cities!

    Did you hear that that? That was the Loudspeaker/Mic hitting the floor!

    I don’t think I need to explain any more than that and I think y’all can quickly understand the demographics the people that do what in this country and those that don’t and what will happen to those people once they get out of their comfort zone we’ve already seen it on the news all summer long.

    Stop all food and fuel brought into the cities get on it

    We need action and we can do everything we want to accomplish and one decisive action nope I’m not talking guns and ammo or even fire in one shot quite simple look at the demographics of our election if they’re even legitimate which they are not but if you look at the city it’s all read all the other areas are blue what that means is all the hard-working folks and break their back’s every day are not the people that are causing us nor are they the one stopping it but let’s get them together stop all food and fuel submission to the cities.
    Every one of those woke pussies will get real uncomfortable real quick and they hate uncomfortable because there’s some of the week instead of walk this planet believe me you do that and they will give in so quickly because they don’t want to feel uncomfortable so we don’t even have to get violent just stop the importation of FOOD AND GAS!

    We’ve already seen them do it to each other they will destroy themselves they will burn their own city down!

    They will not come out to the farms to challenge you and we all know why but if they do it will be ready will not be us that does any sort of violence first.
    So if you wanna save America and this is what you do it’s very simple so simple it’s almost hilariously easy

    This is what happens when you let lawyers and insurance companies run your society. There is no concern about justice, just a quest for a payout. I consider the payment to people launching lawsuits because it’s cheaper than fighting them to be a form of insurance fraud, and frankly, when insurance companies bellyache about fraud and want our help fighting it, I consider that to be the height of hypocrisy.

    • Jim Hovater July 30, 2021, 11:45 am

      William Shakespeare and The Eagles were correct: ‘Kill all the lawyers. Kill them tonight’.

  • OldGuy July 30, 2021, 9:55 am

    This is a frivolous un-necessary lawsuit targeting the deepest pockets possible which in this case is the “low-hanging fruit of opportunity” which is how the Democrats allow their Gun Control Tactics to be purposefully directed in a form of Terrorism within the firearms industry.
    The culprit to blame is actually the deceased adult parent of the deceased adolescent shooter but why would any Democrat or opportunistic Attorney or Judge concern themselves with the truth of the matter? Adam Lanza spent much of his daily life playing violent video games, and Adam’s deceased mother allowed Adam to be entertained by this violent content, so why aren’t the parents of the deceased victim-children suing the Lanza Family as well as the Entertainment Industry who produces and manufacturers violent content instead of essentially a group parts manufacturers like the firearms industry?
    I am greatly saddened by the Cancer within our Society of Violent Suicidal Individuals who seek to harm innocent bystanders, congregation members, student and workplace associates, and people of other cultural races just because they are different.
    Now we have a Dim-Wit in the White House who believes the answer to all senseless shootings is to take away everyone’s firearms beginning with 9mm pistols, and next month or next year it will be another vilified firearm but until the mental health barrier is successfully identified and dealt with these incidences will most likely continue to happen.
    Speaking of mental stability, how many people believe Nancy Pelosi should be allowed to own a firearm?

  • Doctor Moebius July 30, 2021, 9:53 am

    Dumb Bastards! I was there – there was NO SHOOTING! This was a Deep State False Flag attack – most of the so-called victims are alive – the older brothers & sisters were not; they faked it by using old photographs to pretend there were younger siblings who got killed – readily apparent in Robbie Parker’s case. Then, you have the bizarre comments by Dr. Wayne Carver. Look at the real estate records (which I did at Newtown Zoning & Planning Dept.) – I took the names of 10 victim’s families. no less than 5 families ALL received $400K+ homes the year before for values between $1 – $100. I asked the town employee about it, and she said, ” sometimes a parent will bequeath a home to their children for a token sum for legal reasons”. When I asked about there being 5 such cases all the year before, and she remarked, “Hmm. That IS peculiar”.

    Many other facts confirm this was a PsyOp, and most likely, no students were killed. However, there were murders because of this Deep State plot – Eric Langlois, a photographer, who had photos of school children from St. Rose of Lima being bused to Sandy Hook (the school was closed at the time of the shooting – the building was basically condemned for asbestos and water damage), and these kids were the ones used in the one photo of about 20 kids in a school of over 400+. Where were all the other kids? There weren’t any – they went to St. Rose of Lima, or in Milford, if I recall. Professor Jim Fetzer discovered the SHES was closed, and student were at another school in the adjacent town, as milk and lunch food for the school was sent to the Milford address.

    Had there been one or two minor inconsistencies, one could argue coincidence; however, given the large number of problematic evidence ‘factoids’, the only conclusion one should make from the evidence is that this was a staged event to promote gun control. Why, the veery fact that one of the parents had a donation website up and running the same day of the shooting strains any reasonable credulity. The disgusting way the ‘surviving’ parents have used the scam to get free money is beyond greed – it is EVIL, and Shame on them! Now, for the insurance companies offering them ANY money at all is fraud, and all their customers and shareholders should file a lawsuit. That’s their money the insurance companies are stealing!

    • Jim July 30, 2021, 2:01 pm

      If you really believe this then you are certainly in need of a mental health professional. Either that or you are intentionally lying in order to stir up trouble. Either way, your post should not have been allowed.

      • John Boscogolvitch July 30, 2021, 8:47 pm

        Perhaps you should be banned from posting. You are either a paid de-bunker (liar) or an ignorant sheep worshiping government official stories and those in authority. Do a little research. Sandy Hook was the biggest and easiest to see through hoax shooting incident in the last twenty years. Mass shootings are extremely rare, except those perpetrated by deep state actors for political gain, such as banning of the second amendment, confiscating weapons and vilifying conservatives and patriots.

    • Brian Mars July 30, 2021, 7:05 pm

      I agree. I never believed there was a shooting that day. They demolished the school and Adam Lanza’s house as well. Why? To remove any and all evidence that goes against the official “narrative”

    • John Bosgolvitch July 30, 2021, 8:37 pm

      Thank God you are allowed to post this. You are spot on. Nobody died at Sandy Hoax. Biggest con job in recent memory. No blood, no bodies, no brains or gore, no bio-hazard cleanup. Contractors paid off to shut up. CNN on hand prior to event. 26 Christmas trees in memory of the victims, sent by a doer in Virginia, stacked behind the building same day. State police acting from a “prepared script.” Crisis actor/Sloppy Sniper also played the part of victim’s father. Robbie Parker laughing when he thought he was off camera…and on and on. And don’t forget Jim, above, either a govt. troll and de-bunker or just a lover of lies and worshiper of propaganda and authority.

    • Jonn July 30, 2021, 11:20 am

      If they can sue gun manufacturers for what someone did with their products, then why not when a drunk driver kills someone. Sue the car manufacturer and the distillery or brewery that made the alcohol.

  • No One July 30, 2021, 9:13 am

    The gun, knife, club etc are not the issue, what is the issue are individuals that use these tools to harm others. The gun, knife, club etc cannot in anyway harm a person unless they are picked up by a person.

    Help the person, not sue the company.

  • Tom Mann July 30, 2021, 8:57 am

    Thus is as ridiculous as they come. Just a total shame that everyone is having to go through this from both sides. America is headed down a course of destruction and headed faster and faster as the days and months go by. We can’t save everyone in the world but we should try to help where we can but not by bringing the problem to our backyard. Americans should be celebrating life and accomplishments moving forward. Just for example… racism was slowly but surely getting better and racism was moving out of the country. But now it’s like the clock has turned back time and we are back in the 50s. BLM is nothing more than a racist baiting agenda. We were making fantastic progress turning with Trump then boom. What a set back. This worthless administration is accomplishing one thing for sure. A complete and total devided America. Not the rich and poor but two separate groups of thought. One side wants to completely tear down America and start all over and one side wants to build on the America we have. Unfortunately the first way America can never ever recover and it appears that is the way we going. Take a look around the world at other countries that have taken this path. South Africa, most of South America, Cuba, Jamaica, many countries in Europe. I am afraid of the blood bath of a revolution that is headed this way which could easily let America get caught in the middle of a WW3. This would be a war that we would not be prepared for and lose and the end result will be devastating to America and this world we live in. A few are not going to be happy untill we have a world wide devastation. You and I are both witnessing it right now with the China virus. Everyone has lost very close loved ones and we continue to bitch and moan about procedures, vaccinations, masks and yet America continues to shoot themselves in both feet. I like quite a very large number of Americans are assamed and disgusted with what is going one. You better have a come to Jesus meeting with yourselves and pray for a better America because this fast train is headed in the wrong direction.

  • Roland July 30, 2021, 8:44 am

    This is a ludicrous unconstitutional action. When a business has to fear that they are being unconstitutionally targeted by our government so they have to try to buy off there attackers to stop illegal law suits this is a government gone wild. So if somebody commits a crime using a piece of rope the rope manufacturer can expect to be sued. This is a total act of governmental disregard for the constitution.

  • Alchemist July 30, 2021, 8:43 am

    Pathetic! Of course insurers are part of the weasly corporate fold and placate the Marxists social justice contingent. The more you feed the beast, the more aggressive it becomes. Suing and harassing the firearms industry is a tactic to crush it. Of course the rifle was to blame. Imagine if society felt cars and car makers were to blame. Geeee there’d be no more cars.

  • Potato July 30, 2021, 8:28 am

    Bad decision however weighing the odds against a leftist leaning government one stands little chance when the government and a segment of society are plotting against you to destroy you. Will the same logic be applied to those who died and die from the vaccinations currently being forced on people??? How about those this government has forced to go to war??? How about Fauci’s “gain of function”???? This logic can be applied to many situations.

    This is a travesty. Then every car used to terrorist attacks is just as liable.

    WTH? The Supreme Court is not doing their job. They should have to answer to someone!

    How much money did the democrats make off stock shares of the gun manufacturers ? How much money were the democrats going to lose off the manufacturers no longer giving them “contribution” monies ?

    If the Communist state of Connecticut was to sue the gun manufacturers (Colt, CT’s largest tax payers) then that would allow the average person to sue all automotive manufacturers, motorcycle manufacturers, airplane engine manufacturers (Pratt & Whitney – CT’s largest tax payers) and that would open the door to bicycle’s, skateboard’s, all buses, all taxi’s, and even THE CASINO’s would be liable if someone hurt themselves or others !
    With the casino’s gone all the democrats would have no place to drink or the other illegal underage actions that happen there AND YES I DO KNOW because we have friends who are firefighters and Ambulance Techs that see it all the time but are told to “be quiet if you want your job !”

    Just think this is a bad move. This will set a precedent for more lawsuits against the firearms industry. For some reason, people think the firearms Industry is super rich like the tobacco companies
    . Several firearms companies have been sold because of low sales by investment company.
    This lawsuit is just for part of the families, when the others hear about it they will jump on board sueing for more millions.
    If a company makes a defective product and it injured people that’s one thing, but to blame a company for criminal acts of a lunatic, next they will sue automobile industry for drunk drivers.
    Perhaps what is needed is something like Israel does, station two soldiers outside of schools armed with Uzi’s, if anyone tries to attack the school they just shoot them. But unfortunately, the far leftist will say the school attacker has rights and that’s not fair to shoot a school attacker.
    Another thing to do on teenage school shooters, is to charge and put their parents in prison, after all they are the ones who raised this lunatic. It’s the same as someone owning dangerous dogs and they attack someone, the owner is charged.

      Since when does a parent ‘own’ a child? Bad analogy, buddy.

    • Robert Adams July 30, 2021, 1:57 pm

      No, it is a good analogy. The father of the “Waffle house shooter” should be slowly beaten to death. Returned firearms to his precious little shit bag son after police confiscated them TWICE! Fuck him,fuck his sociopathic son. Burn in hell assholes.

    Suing a gun company for the derangement of a sick minded person is just plain stupid . People are so sue happy that they will go after anyone they can in order to get money. All the money in the world will not bring any off those precious people back. It is ashamed that someone would do such an act as taking the life of another human being – child for grown up. I am sorry that everyone involved has been hurt beyond imagination, but guns don’t kill – people do. You take away guns and if someone wants to hurt or kill someone nothing can stop them. Are we going to ban everything in the world – fines, forks, sticks, etc, where does it end?

    • Charles July 30, 2021, 3:05 am

      Totally correct. The Supreme Court seems to do what it pleases without having to answer to anyone. That needs to end. They should have taken the case and rightfully shielded Remington.
