This week, the Supreme Court ruled it would refuse an appeal from the Remington Arms Company of a Connecticut Supreme Court ruling that permitted relatives of Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting victims to sue Remington.

Even by refusing the appeal, the Supreme Court sends the message that the illegitimate use of a product is the responsibility of the person who manufactured the product–rather than the responsibility of the person who used the product irresponsibly. Insane, and turns the basic rules of law and justice on their heads. Left unchecked, it will put gun manufacturers out of business. Precisely the intention. It’s a snowflake ruling, based on feelings alone–from a supposedly pro-Second Amendment Supreme Court.
