Sandy Hook Families Settle with Remington for $73 Million
The families of 9 victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting agreed in February 2022 to a $73 million settlement to resolve a lawsuit filed against the maker of the Bushmaster AR-15-style rifle used to kill 20 first-graders and six educators in 2012, according to NBC Connecticut [1.].
Remington, which made the Bushmaster rifle used in the shooting, also agreed to allow the families to release numerous documents they obtained during the lawsuit including ones showing how it marketed the rifle.
The families and a survivor of the shooting sued Remington in 2015, saying the company should have never sold such a dangerous weapon to the public, and that their focus was on preventing future massacres.
The lawsuit focused on how the firearm used by the Newtown shooter – a Bushmaster XM15-E2S rifle – was marketed, alleging it targeted younger, at-risk males in marketing and product placement in violent video games. In one of Remington’s ads, it features the rifle against a plain backdrop and the phrase: “Consider Your Man Card Reissued.”
