In what will be a precedent-setting case, today the Supreme Court sided with the survivors and relatives of victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, meaning that their case against the maker of the Remington rifle used to kill 26 people can go forward.

At the core of the judgment, is the judges’ decision that Remington should not’ have sold a weapon as deadly as the Bushmaster AR-15-style rifle’ that gunman Adam Lanza used to kill 20 children and six adult staff members in 2012

‘We are ready to resume discovery and proceed towards trial in order to shed light on Remington’s profit-driven strategy to expand the AR-15 market and court high-risk users at the expense of Americans’ safety,’ he added.
