This isn't a political question, but a legal one. From the article:Now here's the possibly ironic or hypocritical statement.HARTFORD, Conn. — A Connecticut appeals court is scheduled to hear arguments Wednesday in a lawsuit alleging Sandy Hook Elementary School officials failed to order a lockdown that could have saved lives before a gunman killed 20 first-graders and six educators in 2012.
The parents of two children killed at the Newtown school are appealing the dismissal of their lawsuit by a trial court judge, who ruled last year that school officials were immune from being sued and security protocols were discretionary.
The parents of Jesse Lewis and Noah Pozner are seeking undisclosed damages and hope the case prompts school officials to follow security procedures during future emergencies. Three judges of the Appellate Court, the state's second-highest court, will hear arguments Wednesday.
"Children will never be safe in public schools unless the towns can be held accountable when they entirely fail our children by either not having, not implementing or not attempting to prevent imminent harm to our most precious gifts," said Donald Papcsy, a lawyer for the parents.But I thought that according to some school officials/politicians/the MSM, that the gun industry, the NRA or other law abiding gun owners such as myself were supposedly responsible. Seriously though, there is a pending lawsuit right now alleging that the manufacturer of the rifle is somehow responsible, even though there is no evidence the manufacturer or dealer were at fault in any way. Which is it?Charles DeLuca, a lawyer for the town of Newtown and its school district, has said the shooter, Adam Lanza, was solely responsible for the killings and there is no evidence school officials were at fault in any way.
Which is it? BOTH, and ANYTHING that can be blamed by shyster lawyers that has deep pockets with a large amount of money involved.
Heck, if Adam Lanza had Alpha Bits cereal for breakfast, the plaintiff's would blame the cereal for spelling out "kill them" in the leftover milk.
The plaintiff's in the Sandy Hook incident have been brainwashed by lawyers to spend money on lawsuits in an attempt to get something in the way of money from allegedly guilty parties with money. The only parties getting rich in this scenario are the shyster lawyers.
Desperado's Big Bang Theory:
The theory that a "big bang" from a handgun, along with a perpetrator receiving a gunshot wound, is the best way to end violent personal or property crimes.
This sets up the perfect Catch 22 against the anti-gunners. If it's solely due to the actions of Lanza, it removes the school from liability and also means that any suits against firearms manu's are dead in the water. any other claim places liability on the school and security meaning the party suing will win millions upon millions. This then now sets precedent to hold every other school where a violent action took place liable for damages.

Isn't it remarkable how the seemingly distant problems suddenly show up in the most unlikely places, with often such severe and unforseen result?
"Unintended, disconnected, unforseen COLLATERAL DAMAGE"? So it would seem. Just hold your (collective) breath and see just how this turns out.
You must be careful what you pretend to be, because in the end, you are what you pretend to be.

All governments suffer a recurring problem: Power attracts pathological personalities. It is not that power corrupts but that it is magnetic to the corruptible. Such people have a tendency to become drunk on violence, a condition to which they are quickly addicted. . . . . . . . . . . . .. — Frank Herbert, Chapterhouse: Dune
Federal law already says that a manufacturer can't be held liable for the misuse of their products. Hasn't stopped the lawsuits yet.

Lots of lawyers are spaghetti cooks. They will throw anything against the wall to find out if it will stick. "Hey, let's see if the judge will buy that I was traumatized by anti-plaque toothpaste commercials, because I got a plaque at a science fair, so that's why I exposed myself to a flock of geese by the pond downtown and disrupted the annual staff picnic for Our Lady of Infinite Fig Leaves Convent."
Reason and logic have nothing to do with it.
