Did the S&W AR malfunction? How was S&W negligent? How was the store who sold the gun negligent? The only negligent party was BSO, who did NOT report the numerous visits to Cruz’s residence to the FDLE. GARY.

It has nothing to do with any of that. Their goal is to make firearm manufacturing such a legal liability that the businesses involved are forced to either only sell to government agencies and maybe licensed security services or risk going bankrupt from constant frivolous lawsuits. They are trying to create a situation that forces them to only sell weapons to who they deem worthy.

Sorry but a few ambulance chasing lawyers from Miami are not going to succeed in changing the protection.

The state law duplicates the federal one and every single lawsuit filed against them has failed.

Unfortunately the defendants still have to hire expensive lawyers and waste time in court.
All just to fend off legal theft.
When the law suits fail, does the plaintiff have to pay the defendants legal fees?
If so, wonder if the families being talked into these shenanigans realize that.

It depends, sometimes the plaintiffs must pay the defendant’s legal fees but the defendants have to pursue that in court and then the court has to award it them. So to get them they need to spend even more time and money and court without a guarantee. What judge and jury is going to punish a “grieving family” that way even if their lawsuit was frivolous?

Exactly. As with other attempts to create a snowstorm of ordinances, these clowns can't win in an election, legislature, or court, so they try to do an end run.

LOL, I don't know why anyone expects them to play fair. It's a rigged game.

The saddest part is these idiots will cause such a landslide for other items for people to sue: automobile companies with drunk/impaired drivers, tool manufacturers for when idiots don't know how to operate them,etc.. Of course it wouldn't surprise me if that is their intention, the way they want everything for free and don't want to work.

Exactly. For most things, it's gone that way already. Look at all the warnings on tools, pharmaceuticals, etc. How about the ''pre warning and post warning'' Rugers and others. All lawyerspeak, because a good lawyer anticipates the risks. Sure, some specific items are the result of lawsuits but, now one needs get ahead of the curve.

Yes, your conclusion is correct, there is the goal of a payday in many cases.

One of the dumbest I've heard was some years ago a horse somehow got out of a fenced yard and while running along, it went over a small cliff falling on top a of Ford Mustang (how ironic right) and crushed the roof, killing the driver. His family sued Ford Mo. Co, because they didn't make the roof strong enough to withstand a falling horse. They won millions.....

Yep, that’s exactly the grand design of those lawsuits.
