and Cerberus owned Remington. 

 

The deep pocket is Cerberus.

Freedom Group as a whole is a nightmare for the gun industry

I like my Marlin!

 

 So many of my customers had so many problems with the new Marlins.  Fit and finish took a big hit.

I can see why SCOTUS decided to pass on this. It's a loser.

It will go to trial, plaintiff's will have to prove that mere advertisement was responsible for the shooter's activity.

They would need to present evidence that at least more than one person in the state of Connecticut was "triggered" into mass shooting or homicide by the advertisement during the time period that the advertisement was published and circulated.

They need to show evidence that the person that purchased the firearm did so based solely on the advertisement - that person is dead.

They would also need evidence to demonstrate that the Connecticut Law has some sort of validation, is applied equally and that other products marketed in state do not promote violence.

 

I had no idea video games, violent films and publications that depict violence were illegal in Connecticut. This also goes for insect repellents and pesticides.

 

End result - Remington loses in civil trial, appeals on the grounds that the applicable law is unconstitutional.

Connecticut Law is struck down 1st amendment and equal protection grounds.

 

 

 

I agree with your assessment. The Connecticut law is the kicker.

White box advisors recently bought up debt Remington owed to 7 banks, something like  $200mm.  They probably aren’t too happy with this decision.

 Remington made a pretty big mistake trying to jump into the handgun market

every president has their cult members, but this is exactly why Trump got elected. 

 

a ton of normal people held their noses and voted simply on 2a and supreme court.

Even with my personal views on these types of firearms, I'm not a fan of this decision.  OP is correct in that this is going to open the floodgates for all types of litigation.  Sports cars being marketed for "performance".  Alcohol/spirits ads portraying women wanting to party with you.  Possibilities are endless here.

doesn't explain why he won the GOP primary,

or why Republican Presidents don't win every time......

 

I think the GOP embraced Trump because he is the sort of leader they were yearning for......
