Long story short this guy was cleaning his rifle when he had a negligent discharge that unintentionally killed an innocent. The victim’s family blames Remington and is suing them.
First off MDA will count this as another tragic victim of gun violence even though there was no malicious intent behind this. Anything gun related is gun violence to them because they want to pad their statistics as much as they can. If you think an unintentional situation like this is just as malicious as a gang land shooting there’s not much that can change your mind.
Secondly this isn’t Remington’s fault. The exact same thing could have happened with a glock pistol or a mossberg shotgun. If I drive drunk and crash into someone it’s not Dodge’s fault for making my truck and it’s not Jack Daniel’s fault for making my whiskey. It’s my fault for using poor judgment. This isn’t just wanting justice for the loss of a loved one. It’s an attempt to cash in on tragedy. I really do feel for the family. The loss of life whether it be intentional or not is tragic, but to blame a company for the actions of a customer is just stupid.
Sootch00 on Youtube dd a video on the Chiappa 1911-22. One of the viewers commented that they had shot one and it blew up in their face blinding them in their right eye. That’s an example of a faulty product, of a manufacturer’s mistake that directly lead to the injury of a customer. In that situation a lawsuit could be justifiable since the gun shot not have exploded. In court there could be the argument he wouldn’t have been blinded if he was wearing eye protection so it’s not a guaranteed win, but it shows manufacturer liability.
Right here what we have is user error. The Remington 700 rifle has a fixed box magazine. With a detachable magazine it’s easier to remove the magazine to unload a gun. Still with a fixed magazine it’s easy to open the action and look inside to see if the gun is loaded. If you see a round in the magazine it will chamber if you close the bolt. Make sure you remove it. In fact with a bolt action you should remove the bolt completely when cleaning. He didn’t do that. It’s his own fault he didn’t safely handle the weapon.
Any brand new gun comes with safety instructions. I got my Mossberg brand new from the factory. The owner manual came with safety instructions, the gun lock came with safety instructions, two other sets of safety instruction pamphlets enclosed. There was copious amounts of safety material. If you get a gun used you can go to the manufacturer’s website to get safety materials.
All the safety materials in the world count for nothing if you don’t put it into practice though. You can read all you want, you can require all the certification you want by law, you can make people train and practice and test, but none of that matters if they don’t constantly practice safe gun handling. You should never get overconfident. Never just assume a gun is unloaded.
The guy is an idiot. Sue him not the company.
WHAT IS THAT
whaaaaat is that
THAT’S HOW THEY MAKE CAMO???????
It’s called waterlifting or something like that. The tub is electrified with a teeny tiny amount of voltage, you can’t even feel it. Then, a very large piece of paper with your choice of a pattern/image/whatever is carefully, very carefully placed on the surface of the water ever so perfectly. The voltage then creates the moistened paper into a substance that sticks better than both paint and vinyl, and then you can dip whatever you please into it. It comes out amazingly when done right. Saw this done to a set of wheels a few times.
It’s called hydro dipping.
According to the IRS, volunteer firefighters are ‘employees’ - so the fire departments will have to buy them all health insurance or pay hefty fines.
